Best wishes for 2019 to all my friends and followers. The end of 2018 left me unable to update FB and my other channels so here is a summary of what I learnt and experienced in November and December at Ecole Escoulen wood turning school in France:
We had Nat Groeneweg, Thierry Bertheas and Jean-francois Escoulen teaching us.
We went on a couple of road trips to see different artists who were previous students of the school or teachers.
Learnt so much I am not sure I could explain it all in one post. I'll let the pictures tell the story instead.
Thierry Bertheas taught us different colouring and painting techniques with acrylics and very many different ways of texturing. This is a really satisfying way of expressing your style and experimenting with colours and textures.
Really enjoyed learning how to carve and make Jewelry from rare woods from a master at her craft, Nathalie Groeneweg.
