Late Summer at Hawkwood with Frances Pickering

Warning - these were all taken on my phone so the standard's not as good as I'd have liked!

I had a fabulous time again at Hawkwood College last week, at Frances' late Summer Masterclass. Beautiful and peaceful location,  great company, yummy food and so much help and inspiration from Frances, and all the other participants. Here is a flavour of where we were.

These were the views across the valley.

 This abandoned shopping cart had been very usefully repurposed on the farm!

This owl was carved on a post in the middle of nowhere. I found him by accident on one of my walks!

The dew webs on Saturday were stunning and this one  was fabulous.

Meanwhile in class...

A few of us early birds  getting started before the rush!

The theme for this year's class was The Roaring 20's.

Frances' wonderful books provided more inspiration for us. Here's a small selection of her fantastic books on this theme.

My piece is  not my normal thing at all! I went with the preconception, (and preparation) to make this theme a  real challenge, and do something very art deco/angular - but it turned out to be completely different to that idea too! I'll  share it next time.
