Art n Soul Part two:
My first class was with Sally Jean the queen of soldering I can solder ,but I have always wanted to take a class from Sally jean.Below is what I made during class not a great photo but you get the idea.
After a full days class with Sally jean that night I took a class with Jean Van Brederode, who would be teaching me how to use a Hydraulic press. I was lucky enough to be given one for my 50th birthday from my good friend's Chris and Linda, the only thing is I have always wanted one but one small problem I didn’t know how to use it, just a small hic up that’s all LOL.I had admired Jeans work for a long time and was thrilled to do this class.After sitting down I proceed to make myself comfortable after 5 minutes the ice was broken with a few choice words LOL, I really did get a fright when that press started to do its thing.Jean and I soon bonded LOL.
Above Joan(room mate,) Jean and Me.
The next day was a class with Barbara Lewis,I had talked online with Barbara so to finally meet her was amazing.It was a torched fire enamelling class where we made lots of wonderful enamelled bead's.Her hubby and son also where there to help in the class I must say I took a shine to David he has a quirky sence of humor like me so you can image what I put that poor boy through.That night I was to teach my first class,more later.
