Lisa is an inspiring teacher who focuses on design decisions and I really enjoyed talking with her. I was staying in the same B&B as her and enjoyed our discussions at breakfast. I was also lucky enough to be shown the stone set pieces she brought along and have now bought her book 'Designing from the Stone' (which is available from Amazon).
I found the class very inspiring. I was disappointed with the faux leather I had brought along as it looked very plasticky compared to the beautiful pieces being created by my fellow students.
However, I really enjoyed learning the techniques and got a lot out of the class. I have already
sourced some more authentic faux leather and suede (I hope!) and look forward to finishing off the pieces I started during the class. I will, of course, post photos here on the blog when they're finished.
Here are some photos I took during the class.
