Cloisonné in Region 6
On 7 February, Region 6 met at Orchard Studios, Kingswood, Bristol for a cloisonné workshop. We were very lucky to have Caroline Tetley, our rep, to instruct us in this delicate technique. There were eleven of us, including three new members, and we all had a very pleasant day, with Caroline passing on many tips about how to work with fine silver wires. Orchard Studios were looking much brighter and whiter, having just been completely re-appointed following a devastating fire last year. Carole Lockwood, who works there, tells how everything was damaged except a piece of her work which was protected from the fire by being inside the kiln! A true piece of irony.
