Group 2 made good progress today, especially after being off for Easter for two weeks!

I've been working on some ideas for new workshops this week. I've come up with this idea based on the toadstool altered books from my getting back to nature series, but i have made some alterations that allow you to learn more technques and also make it possible to learn all the skills needed and compete the artwork in one session, depending on how much detail you put in of course.

The girls sculptures are coming along now and the addition of the fungi really adds to it.

Today was quite a hectic session. I managed to get two groups working on two types of coral whilst the other girls worked towards finishing their tiles. They are doing great , I'm so impressed with their efforts and a small group came back at lunch to carry on too.

Group 2 are doing well with their wire sculptures too. Most will be starting their decorative fungi work during the next session. They are going to have to think abut the composition in a very different way to the tiles as in some respects it's as important about the spaces left blank as it is about choosing how to present the fungi they produce.

The sculptures are coming on well, much better than I had anticipated. The girls have started adding various papers to the structures today, some have used tissue paper whilst others have used coffee filter papers, both are very effective. The sculptures that weren't made of wire, that the majority of the girls made before I got involved with the fungi have been adding the additional pieces to their work today.

I don't think I will get this piece completed in time for Wednesday as it takes so much coral to fill but the girls will get the idea. This one is fairly easy to create and requires no wire but will take the longest for them to complete.
