Most of the students have completed the structures and will be starting on the coral during their next session. They look quite similar at the moment but that will soon change!

Once I've demonstrated how to make the fungi any or all can be applied to a grassed area.

Just one type of fungi can be created for the altered book.

I'm still developing this workshop but it's nearly there now.

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.
