Saturday at Westhope
We have had a lovely day here at Westhope, with Dorothy Symonds, experimenting with heating, embossing and stitching with metals, ranging from drinks cans and tomato purée tubes to posh copper sheeting.
Dorothy brought lots of samples to inspire us:
We spent the morning playing and making samples to use for brooches:

Dorothy brought her Big Shot embossing machine to texture the metal:
We also experimented with free machining, like Anne's sample with velvet:
