As I was taking these shots I looked out of the window at the front garden and saw that the light was lovely. This was taken through the window glass.



I have just enjoyed two very hot but very enjoyable days at the Bramble Patch with Hilary Beattie. This post is going to show some random images I took of what was happening around the room.

(As usual you can click on the images to enlarge them)

This week we were working with re-cycled papers, fabrics etc. in order to make more images from which we can choose when we come to the design workshops later.

The following two collages are a selection of what I saw other people doing.
