May 2012: Pat, Annie and Sandra learn sandcasting

June 08, 2012

On Friday 18th May, three friends joined me in the studio to spend the day together while doing something a little different. Previously they have made rings and bangles with me, and today they tried sandcasting. We had lots of luck and had some wonderful results. Here are some images from the day.
