Metal workshop

Beaten Bowls in copper, mild steel and aluminium. Three of them have been treated with a blowtorch to give different colours. The workshops at uni are becoming a little more appealing than sitting alone in my studiospace doing crochet all day. Looking forward to the Small Metals induction so I can do press forming and other things. Oooh I have Weave induction tomorrow, and Print on friday I'm so exited!!!!!!

Conker Cosies

Finally I've ended up at De Montort Uni!!! I just wanted to post these funny little things I've made on the course so far. The crochet lace is covering some conkers I found at the New Walk Museum. It's unclear as to what thier function is, or how they apply to the project brief 'Structure and Surface', but I'm sure a use for them will be found soon. I can't shake off the need to crochet but at least they're not gloves.
