preparation for a Wild Wednesday

I am preparing for a Wild Wednesday tomorrow in Museum Gardens, York.  

This is a free and fun event for all the family in the Museum Gardens, with lots of hands-on and exciting archaeology and science activities to take part in. Activities will include making jewellery, casting fossils, making mosaics, hunting mini-beasts, making a stone trough, panning for gold, Chinese writing, birdwatching, firing rockets and exploring Tudor cures and potions.

18 August, 11am - 3.30pm

Just hoping the weather stays fine!

down time

I haven't been posting much recently as I have been busy teaching mainly art clay certification courses and it doesn't seem quite right somehow to post pictures of the students' work for this.  Anyway, this weekend I have been away to my niece's wedding.  Just so you can see I am only one of a creative family here is a stand of cup cakes made by one of my sisters.  I have kept one of the pretty paper case surrounds but haven't quite decided how to use it yet...... stencil maybe?
