Paintings, drawings and silver enamelled jewellery around the theme of microscopic water creatures. A strange fascination with owls and some collaborative work with a woodworker.
 
Megan Burt has been painting and drawing imagery of microscopic creatures for some time and is finding it interesting to move the theme over to a different medium. Working in 3 dimensional forms  with silver enables her to create more texture and definition.

You will learn basic jewellery making techniques on a weekly basis, such as sawing, filing, soldering, roll printing and finishing metals, as well as cabochon stone setting. You will be making a ring, pendant and earrings along the way. There will be one to one guidance enabling you to confidently create your own piece of jewellery.

Facebook page is https://www.facebook.com/dodd108/

It’s a friendly, relaxing course with different practices and activities to suit different tastes and needs. It is both educational and experiential. We learn to look inward, with kindness and in safety, at our physical sensations, our thoughts and our feelings, whatever they are. The intention is to allow and accept how things are without great effort and this can lead to profound change. There are 7 sessions in 2017 and a final session on 9 January with an optional day retreat included in the cost. Also included are recordings and a course manual.
