Most pieces are now at the finishing stages. The students just need to make decisions on the finishing touches. We are considering the using a little tea or watercolour on the sculptures that have rust coming through, to enhance it rather than trying to cover it up. Although we are trying to depict the bleaching of coral reefs I don't think this would distract from the subject.

This group work so hard! Most of them have finished building their sculptures and have started or are ready to start making their coral now .

todays session was very productive, with finishing touches being applied to some of the work. The girls who have completed their sculptural pieces are now working on an artist page about my work. I'll add photographs later.

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.
