Mrs B's Mixed Media Workshop at Hope and Elvis:

Early on Saturday morning my mate Sam (without whose help my work shopping adventures would never happen!) my hubby (who kindly did the driving as motorways scare the bejesus out of me), and myself set off to the fabulous Hope and Elvis.
(It was a very cosy journey!)
We set up the examples and my work while Kate Bush was playing in the background.
I always feel very nervous before a workshop starts, but equally as excited at the same time!
The ladies starting to arrive, and it was such a fabulous group of creative and enthusiastic makers.
It was pure joy.
It was great to see old friends and brand new faces.
Soon it became a hive of activity and chatter and music...
Oh yes, the 'choons were a-playing!
It was amazing to see how quickly everyone's work evolved.
It was lovely to sit together for dinner and a laugh.
Back to work!
Those colours though!
Oo! A Mrs B mug!
The studio is just stunning.
These two...
Exciting layers...
Stunning textures...
The 'table of lovlieness' started to fill up...
Oh, I do love a hare!
I really hope that I've photographed everyone's work, there was just so much stunning art everywhere!
Well done everyone!
This is how I like a table to look at the end of the day!
Thank you to my Mum and to Jean from the village for the gorgeous cakes.
And thank you to both Louises and to Sam for all your hard work.
