I never get as much time as I want to be creative and what better place to release my inner artist than at the St Ives School of Painting whose studios over look the stunning Porthmeor Beach (I’ve decided to share a picture of the stunning view rather than my efforts). I signed up for a 2-hour printmaking workshop as part of the St Ives September Festival. It was great fun – Liz Luckwell was a patient and informative tutor and there was a vast range in talent in the room from beginners (me!) to some seriously talented individuals but it didn’t matter. I definitely want to go back and try some other mediums – and check out that amazing view again.
