So looking forward to two whole days in Sally Laings lovely workshop learning and playing and being creative!
I've just been sorting through my scrap metal drawers (in their old library catalogue home) to see what bits and pieces might come in handy in addition to what is supplied. I packed a bunch of different sized copper tubing and wire, silver tubing and I FINALLY cut into the old copper toilet cistern which has been sitting under my torch bench for months. I cut out one end of the box shape, the end which has holes for the toilet handle, but I don't know if I can bring myself to cut that peice up any further because I really just love the look of it as it is, kinda makes me want to just put the whole chunk up on the mantel piece and admire the beautiful patina!
I just love the thing as a piece of art without doing anything to it, seems a pity to cut it up or put coloured enamels over it, much as I like to recycle I think I'll just use new material instead of ruining this. There are three corner brackets from it which are obviously crying out to be made into something though, only for enamel if it will improve what they are now though
