After the Gala Dinner.....

The Symposium Gala Dinner took place on Saturday night and the tutors had to sit one to a table. I met up with Louise on the way there who had been a very creative and lovely student at my free motion class so when she asked if I'd sit at her table I agreed. We had a lovely meal and were entertained by 'Cindy from Samoa' who sang while we waited for our meal to be served. He sang 3 sets, but his Tina Turner act was very well done, not only did he look like the famous Miss Tina, but he sounded spot on.
The next morning was the first day of the journal class and the sun was out and to took the opportunity to enjoy it as much as possible.
This class was so much fun and as you will be able to tell, I encouraged the girls to 'create freely'. They took me at my word and in a short period of time all surfaces, including the floor were covered! It was wonderful :) (we had to ban the cleaners for the night!)

Here are some of the journals.....
And don't you just want to look through this yummy journal? I was thrilled to see them leave the class with their journals pretty much finished but I know they'll be adding bits and pieces for a wee while to come.
One proud teacher and her students.
