A day in the life...

I never got to post last week so I thought I'd catch up by posting a kind of typical day post. Lots of pics, not much about jewellry making though.

 On my way to school, I pass this statue which is on a former shipping office. Maybe they had St. George as their patron saint ? I love the detail on the Dragon. I'll store him away for use as inspiration later...
 On the south channel of the river they built an Hotel and office block development. It's a nice place to get a coffee..                                                                                                                                                                                                  .

 I also pass my old high school. It was a commercially based school, specialising in accountancy, bookkeeping and so on, how would things have turned out had I gone to an art based school ? 
 Because I'm always early, I get to sit and drink a flask of coffee. For a while I have the place to myself.

 This is our workshop building. It was a church at one point. 

After some instruction, we get to work. This day we had a go at enameling. There's always a mad flurry of activity while we try and solidify in our minds the technique.


This is Chris, our instructor. How he manages to deal with everybody and keep a sense of humour is amazing.
