November Workshop - Jessica Aldred - An Introduction to Goldwork

We are lucky enough at Halifax to have among our talented members Jessica Aldred, who is an RSN scholar who has resettled in the area.
In November she ran a workshop for members on an introduction to Goldwork, featuring Neil the Snail. 

Members were able to buy everything they needed from Jessica to start work on their very own "Neils", and by the end of the day they were well underway. 

Lesley soon finished hers

Followed soon after by Davina

And by the December meeting we had a positive escargatoire of snails 
adorning frames, boxes and bags.

If you would like to contact Jessica to find out about her classes and availability, you can do so via her website, http://www.bespokeneedlework.com

  1. Just my kind of workshop. No need to provide hoards of stuff you do not use on the day and then never gets to see the light of day again!!
