TSG Summer School at Harper Adams University College

July was a busy month with the summer school taking place during the last week with hot sunny weather at last – sometimes too hot!
There’s always an air of anticipation as everyone arrives and tutors set out their work rooms ready to go. There was a choice of three courses.

Magic in Making started from students’ own collections of items of no intrinsic value but treasured for all sorts of personal reasons.
Some quotations set us all thinking each day and we took inspiration from other artists, trying techniques and finding our own ways of working.

Ruth’s collection

Jan’s collection

Myra’s collection

Rosemary’s collection

The collections were all fascinating. Here are just some, brought by Ruth Collins, Rosemary McCarthy, Jan Dowson and  Myra Cheeseman.

We all worked hard over the four days and had a lot of laughs along the way. They were a very happy group and I loved working with them all.
