Before we move on to the Tudor and Elizabethan period we thought you might like to see one or two more pictures of work undertaken since September.

 Strange birdies from the Bayeux Tapestry
 Runes were used as the inspiration for this page.

This is just to illustrate the fact that we do actually do samples too before we produce our pages.

Don't forget everyone  .....  the 17 January meeting will follow the planned schedule for the session cancelled at the end of November due to the attrocious weather.  The requirements list sent out to you at that time will be used.  You will be covering Sgraffito, Xpandaprint and Stained Glass Patchwork techniques.  Any questions - just contact one of the two tutors.
