Counting down "eins, zwei, drei"


I flew into Germany and was met at the airport by the gorgeous Britta and her husband. I had such a great time with them and their family.
This was my first encounter with the language difference and we managed to do well most of the time and when we couldn't work something out there was always google to interpret the last.
 Xanten near Dusseldorf and I went for a wander in town and visited the historic church.

I of course had to visit a castle and the closest was Moyland. These shots were from the grounds. Just beautiful despite the rain. The last one is actually at another small castle we saw .

We made big sculptural hats and though the class was small there was so much done. I really loved my time with these women. Britta has the most amazing studio and we could stop now and then for coffee and sustenance and sit and chat around the table in this funny triangle conversation of translation  between German and English.
I was working with some seriously talented women and the work they came out with was phenomenal. I am glad for my part I had in this.

I am sure you will agree these guys did an amazing job. I love to watch and help people's ideas develop and grow into these fantastic art works. It is my privilege.

I'm so glad you left your necklace (the one we washed) - As Jana said: if you forget something it means you will return... ;-)
The 'small castle' you mentioned is called 'Schloss Haag' - I will never remember the visit there without giggling!

Beautiful student work , Pam. Also the pictures of the castle and gardens are beautiful. They reminded me of Seville Parque de María Luisa in Seville, Spain. So lovely.
