The second summer school course I did at City Lit, was one with Tanvi Kant. Another jeweller working in textiles. This two day course was a further opportunity to experience techniques and processes personal to another artist and to experiment with a series of samples and test pieces.
Again it was fascinating to hear Tanvi talk about her own work and experiences...especially those linked to her own culture and it's traditions/celebrations.
There was a lovely group of students on this course and the nature of the technique meant there was often a lot of chatter as we worked, a sewing bee, swapping stories and seeing what each other was working on.
Here are a few of my samples and tests...
