Workshop, A Choir and Pots

21 May

Some of you, Dear Readers, may remember that I was selling my glass pieces in a small gallery in Penryn – Fannie and Fox. Since the pandemic we have not met and the Gallery has closed. Today, some of us did meet for a G7 workshop. The theme was Behind The Postcards, showing what Cornwall means to those of us who live here.  I wasn’t sure what to make but after L introduced the afternoon and seeing that  P had brought some clay, a whole new idea popped into my head.
What does Cornwall mean to me apart from its beauty of sea and sands and sky and fields? It means community. It means our street, the allotment, the Fannies, and, most of all, my choirs so I made a choir out of clay. My clay pal, A, made a series of beautiful pinch pots. Our host, P, in whose workspace we were, made a beautiful female figure. Others were sewing, sketching or simply being there, with everyone again. Some of our session was filmed to be a part of a short film about the real Cornwall to be shown at the G7 conference next month.
Here are some of our creations.

My choir – I hadn’t realised there was such a cross chorister until I uploaded the photos!

    What do you think your little choir is singing?

      Had to think about that – I think, “Lean on Me” which we sang together on Monday evening. Says it all really. xx

    That female figure has real breadth and depth! 😆

    Glad that you could get together for some community!
