Mixed media and wire workshop pictures

Over Easter this year we had a family of 5 staying with us – the weather turned nasty on the Sunday so what better way to spend the time than to run a wire and mixed media workshop?! We had been to the beach the day before and had collected up lots of goodies to use, which we tipped into big bowls in the middle of the table which everybody dipped into. Ages ranged from 7 to 50 and there were 7 of us altogether. The following pictures are what they made in under 2 hours – I’m pretty impressed by the variety, imagination and inventiveness!
