Sorrento Holiday 2011

Hot Chillis, Cool Beer and beautiful scenery. That just about sums up our holiday in Sorrento. We had a brilliant time visiting Herculanium. Pompeii, the Amalfi Coast, Naples museum, Vesuvius and Capri. The weather was a bit too hot, hotter than usual for Septemeber but we are getting used to that this year. Seems that everywhere is hotter than usual. We stayed at a lovely hotel right in the heart of Sorrento so we were able to get to my favourite haunt of the Foreigners club for drinkies!!!! Also found some nice little bars.I took the usual extreme number of photos but have come home with lots of inspiration for a set of textiles based on the murals and mosaics we saw in Herculanium and the museum.

Workshop results from Stow on the Wold EG branch

I am always thrilled when on of my students sends me the results of her workshop with me. These photos came from Angela Gibson, a member of the Stow on the Wold Branch who attended my bowls workshop. She used her bowl to make the 'bed' for her mermaid and I think it is super. She has included so many different techniques. Well done Angela.
I have two more bowls workshops booked for this year.
