|Workshop participants, in a Guernsey garden|
I did say I would hop about a little in this blog, it is not meant to be an art instruction "course" of any kind....and the word "course" brings me to the thought that many of you might, at some time or other, be planning to attend a workshop with an instructor.

A workshop session can be really rewarding - challenging - exciting - enlightening - action-packed - but it can also be exhausting, overwhelming, frustrating, sometimes even downright upsetting - you need to be mentally prepared for anything. You may go home filled with new ideas and renewed vigour and enthusiasm, or there is a small chance you may go home feeling rather shattered and despondent - it can happen. BUT it is a risk worth taking - the chances are really good that you will have had the most marvellous, eye-opening experience - suddenly new doors may have opened for you. Your notes will prove useful in the days and years to come, and the experience will certainly have enriched your life.
