We attended tutor talks on several occasions, and got to see the amazing work all of the tutors do. Quite a few of them don't just do what they teach at the workshops, they branch out into all sorts of interesting mediums. Julie Ryder, our tutor, had a very wide ranging practice and must have a huge CV.
At the end of the week, there is an exhibition of all the classes' work. I had a lovely time chatting and asking about how people had done things. Consequently, I missed some people's work as they started taking their work down so they could travel home. So I didn't take pictures in all the rooms as they would not have looked good with gaps in the displays. And I decided to look closely and enjoy the works rather than get lots of pictures.
So here are some that I got.
