I had an absolutely brilliant time last weekend at Ray Skene's studio. Ray has a superb studio within the Model House at LLantrisant. The Model House is home to a number of outstanding artists, using a variety of materials to produce wonderful works of art. If you're in the area be sure to pop in and you'll find silver jewellery, felt items, stained glass and a whole host of other crafts. Don't forget to say hello to Ray too! If you're lucky you'll find him busily melting glass.
It was great last week meeting other lampworkers. Ray did some superb demonstrations, and everyone was very generous in passing on their techniques to others. I met some lovely people and now I'm busily putting into practice the tips and tricks I learned! I think I have finally mastered the art of encasing beads, so I'm very happy!
The next glassy gathering that I'm looking forward to is the Flame Off at Towcester on April 19th. I can't wait!
