Keeper of the Thicket Review

I have had so much fun with this wonderful Keeper of the Thicket tutorial by the outstanding Cynthia Tilker.

For anyone venturing in to sculptural work I would highly recommend this tutorial it's excellent, a comprehensive list of tools and materials, nothing exceptional required I had everything I needed and I'm not a tool hoarder. Clear steps, great pictures and constant reminders to 'keep me warm' which are essential. I've really learnt a lot about glass making these little chaps, and this tutorial has given me a bit more confidence to make larger sculptural work, I've thoroughly enjoyed myself and thrilled my children who have adopted them all.

I really should have been working but it's not often I have a play day, and this one I put down to research ;o)
