Collages workshop . . .

Yesterday I took my first workshop in quite awhile at the lovely Debbie Bryan Studio & Shop in Nottingham. It was a great day full of lots of creativity. Some of the papers I sourced for the workshop before the trip . . .


On the way in from the station I discovered the best vintage shop, Hopkinson! It was such a treat to find, and to follow it with spending lots of time at Debbie’s, felt very spoilt indeed, and also I now have my second ‘couldn’t visit Nottingham without visiting’ place! This is a little leather binoculars case I bought, why? I don’t know yet, but couldn’t ignore it!

Then on the way in, I had been to Nottingham Contemporary before, but hadn’t actually realised the lace pattern on the exterior! It is in the Lace Market after all!

Then the workshop itself. A full day of working on collages with a group from Paper Rose. A few of the girls taking the workshop had brought along some lovely ephemera, some also bought from Hopkinson; and one letter was kindly given to me, as in the image with the leather case, very kind and a really lovely piece I’m looking forward to using. It was a great day, with plenty cake and tea! I have signed up to take another workshop next year, which I will post information on nearer the time. Thanks Debbie and Paper Rose! x
