Birdies, Ampersands & other ligatures San Antonio


My "ampersands & other ligatures" workshop has now finished in San Antonio Texas. The participants were fabulous and we all enjoyed our time of it. It was the first time I used a document camera but I am yet to be convinced that it is the way for me. I was also miked as the group was large and some a little hard of hearing. I got used to that but I had to keep my sniffles in check!






On the way to class, I snapped these "Grackles on a wire" out of the car window!






Participant mementos.


 

The classroom was a bright and airy pre-school!

Some of the participants painted Celtic ampersands.

 


 Students work:



 Depending on the style of ampersand some mandalas were quicker to execute than others.




My unfinished in-class sample.



It was great meeting so many talented peeps in San Antonio.
