Well, here we are in March 2020 – gosh, that happened fast!
First of all I must wish you all a Happy St David’s Day for 1 March, or my Welsh husband wouldn’t forgive me! Dydd Gŵyl Dewi Hapus!
I thought it was time I shared with you some of the positive stories about the amazing pieces that have been created in my studio since we opened again, after all the fires and chaos that was what we are calling 0ver here in Oz “The Black Summer”. The air pollution in Melbourne was so bad we went out and bought P2 facemasks, so now corona virus is filling every news bulletin we already have them!
Naturally, we are happy to be back in the studio and working away (with a new artist moving in on March 2nd – more about him in a later blog).
2020 is looking a bit weird right now with the virus and impending doom being forecast everywhere, (actually, I think we’ll look back and say “What was that all about?!) but until then, I want to share with you some pictures of gorgeous glass creations from our 2020 students.
This is one very friendly and creative guy who did a great job in our ever-popular “Life’s Colours” workshop.
Then we ran our monthly beginners Alcohol Ink workshop.
What do you think of their framed masterpieces?
The Alcohol Ink workshop was a special birthday gift so we had sparklers and poppers and sang Happy Birthday. I think they had fun!
What a fabulously creative gift to give your girlfriend for her birthday. To make a booking or find out more about our workshops click here.
I want to share with you some more fun we had at the studio in February.
More workshops – always more workshops! – and a pic of Caleph wearing a rag he found – don’t ask me why. Great job he did painting the outside of our studio at 127 Church Street Richmond, too. We are the cool kids on the block now!
And sometimes when people come to our Heart workshop, they make a square or two, too! If you are interested in booking into a workshop click here.
I sent a parcel of glass to a dear friend and glass aficionado in the UK and filled a wall (in Sydney apparently) with my SPLAT coasters – more about that later, and I enjoyed playing in my garden at home. We have planted a cottage garden this year, and it’s a thing of great joy.
As always, we support our local restaurateurs, by enjoying delicious Chinese dumplings. Thanks guys! We love living in a multi-cultural society.
So that’s my An exciting February in pictures for you to enjoy. If you want to find out more about our series of workshops, click here. Thanks for reading and for following along. More news in March!
Meanwhile, don’t get too stressed, stay calm, stop believing everything you read on the internet – unless it’s from me 🙂 – and everyone please wash your hands a bit more!
Turning the news off helps too!
