I visited West Dean College last year for this workshop, and I was completely enchanted. This is one of those places where you go once, and for some reason, (I can think of many) you keep thinking and thinking about it. There is a certain energy to the place that will pull you back.
Back in September (2014) I booked my place on a workshop (more about that next week), something I usually never do because I can never seem to think so far ahead, and planning things make me nervous. But I did it, and since then I could only think of two things: one, "please, please, don't let me get sick by that time,"and two, "when will march arrive?"
As time does have the ability of creeping up on you, the moment to go back did arrive rather quickly.
Here are some views of West Dean, mostly how the weather just adds to its charm, and how beautiful I find it to be.
Needless to say, I feel so grateful and incredibly happy to have been able to be there once again. Also quite refreshed and inspired. I'll show you next week what I worked on, and what some of my talented workshop friends did as well!
I've actually been so inspired by the colors, as well as the workshop, which was just the most eye opening workshop I've ever been to, that I made some brooches and necklaces with West Dean in mind. They are here if you want to take a look, the brooches are a bit different to what I normally do, but I really like how they turned out.
Have a lovely and creative weekend ahead,
