Tin box workshop

Photobucket


Here are the tins the ladies did when I showed them how to make a tin box pretty. Sorry the photos aren't brilliant but I forgot my camera and my friend Helen lent me her iphone to take them, which I am really grateful for otherwise I wouldn't have been able to show anything of them to you apart from probably mine, Bev's and Jen B's at a later date..
Back L-R Ann, Lucy, Janet, Elsie, Jen B & Elaine

Here are a few of them in a little more detail, this one was made by Ann and the one behind it was made by Lucy.

These were by Janet (Quaker one), Elsie and the beaded one with the owl was made by Jen B, Elaine's is at the back

Here are Jens, Mine (Christmas one), Jen B & Judith's

We had a great day and I enjoyed it very much, after my initial nervousness, I find it easy to show 1 person, but to show 10 was a bit different LOL! It was great to see everyones different types of finished tins and the different ideas for the stitched or beaded pieces.
I must add very special thanks to dear Yuko, who obtained the tins for me and sent me them over earlier this year, without them I couldn't have done the workshop as easily.

Su,
What a fantastic exhibition of decorated tins. They are all so different and so imaginative. I'm sure everyone had a fantastic time and I really wish I'd been able to be there too.
I think there's definitely a career change ahead for you :>)

Hmmmm, beautiful beautiful tins, the lot of them! I couldn't talk you into doing a tutorial on the Focus on Finishing blog, could I? I really need to kickstart that blog off again, and need any help that I can get, especially as my own finishing skills are pretty minimal! But it's fine if you say no :D
