you made a lovely bear!
I have had the pleasure of meeting Julie too (we both teach at West Dean college, Chichester) and she is WONDERFUL and exactly like her work.


Oh he is absolutely gorgeous. Lucky you to go on the course. I love Julie's work. Fiona x


I'm so jealous, Nicky! Your bear is fab and I know what a wonderful weekend you must have had, Julie and Jo are both the loveliest and most inspiring people. Wonder if you will make more...

I love your bear! Julie is always so inspiring. I'm glad you had such a great time. x


It looks like an awesome workshop Nicky. Working with papier mache is so much fun. Love your little bear.

Ohh you are so clever. That bear is divine. Cowslip is one of my favourite places on earth and Jo is lovely. Was so sad to have to miss out this time but was in Chipping Sodbury flogging my wares ;-)


Yes, your bear IS divine, as commented above - but I must ask, since the artist's book is out of print (and dreadfully expensive...and I live in the states and don't have access to your UK artist!) how is the armature for your bear created? Did you use sticks or tin foil? Or just layers of paper? Thank you!

Cowslip is delightful, this is the 2nd time I have been. I live in Australia, wish we had something like that here!
