Wednesday 27th June

The last day was great fun, but also sad, we have all enjoyed working together so much and everyone has been highly productive,so there was a lovely busy atmosphere all day.

Neville made a wire book about cycling, his passion….Nyfed added to his fabulous bowl of fruit with an apple, and then made a rose as his last piece.

Dolly finished her serviettes and we know have wire napkin rings to add to them….

We all look forward to meeting up in October at the grand opening.!!!

Nyfed made a stunning piece of cheese to tempt the mouse he made last week,and now we may have persuaded him to make a small larder of goodies….

Neville worked on his superb landscape,adding amongst other things a hoop of chickens,and a hatchet buried in a piece of wood……all in wire of course.

Kate’s latest piece is too riskay to blog about……

Two more days left to bring it all together!

Day 7 of the project,and Neville made an astonishing piece of work, a wire landscape,it was very difficult to make,but he draws so well in space that it all glided together.

Dolly has finished her tablecloth, and it looks great,Nyfed made a lovely ladle for the table, and Kate has excelled herself yet again with three more marvellous flowers

Elwyn’s gold vine,could be attached to the steel vine John is making,and Gwynfor made a very interesting piece from his drawings done in the Botanical Gardens.

Dolly started o…

Dolly started on the tablecloth,and painted a lovely flower border which she ironed on to the cloth.

Neville built  a structure for the vine to grow out of, and John made a lovely wall basket of wire flowers.

We are sad that it was Poppy and Alice’s last day, but they are coming to help set up the exhibition.

Poppy made a great wire picture frame, which looks lovely when framing our faces.!!

See you all next week……
