I spent the day with a bunch of lovely, funny and talented glass artists at Diana East's studio, near Leicester.
The journey there and back was so much fun too ! I travelled with Kaz, Lorna and the two Dianes (glass people will know who I mean) ... and we had an absolute hoot !!! I haven't laughed so much in ages !
I had never been to Diane's studio before ... it's such a wonderful place ! It had such a lovely atmosphere .. we even had a marquee up out the back too. It was like a mini flame off !
There were so many lovely beads on display, both in cabinets and for sale... I just wish I could have bought some !
The facilities at the studio are just awesome too ... lots of torches and a really user friendly space to work in too.
I was also very fortunate to get to see a bead making demo by Astrid Riedel ... her work is just so beautiful ! It left me really wanting to try to get to know my nemesis again .... silver glass !
It was lovely to see Teresa and Martin again too ... and especially Emma Green ... I do love that girl... she's the best ! She's also enrolled me to help out at April's flame off again ... she just kind of forgot to tell me, lmao ..... but that means that my ticket is sorted ! All I need to sort out now is how to get there... it's all coming together !
And Kay .... Special Kay, and her fellatio ;OP It was SO lovely to see her again too... laugh ? I nearly wee'd !!!
Oh and the fudge ..... how can I not mention the DELICIOUS handmade fudge that I bought..... it didn't survive for very long, hehehe ....
All in all, I had the most wonderful day ... I have some of the best friends that anyone could ask for.... I also have the most talented friends too... they all inspire me to better myself, which I will endeavour to do :)
Anyway ... I am rambling again ... so I shall just share a few photo's taken on the day, of some fantastic people :)
If you're a glass artist, you'll probably recognise some faces :)
Bye for now ... Les xx
