Goldwork Training Day: report

The second of our Goldwork Training Days took place last Saturday, on the 21st March, and a splendid time was had by all. We are very grateful to Sarah and Sue who came all the way from Warrington to teach us. They brought with them their amazing shop, which is always popular!

Several of the group were working on symbols associated with St Clare, in preparation for making a Guild of St Clare banner: you can see some of them in the pictures below.

Amanda with tutor Sarah Rakestraw, and Amanda's Monstrance design: Amanda is learning the Or Nue technique to get perfect points on the Monstrance's rays.

Dorothea's cat - this one won't be used for the banner! A really commendable first attempt at Goldwork.
