Guild of Enamellers Region 4 meeting this month was a workshop with Gillie Hoyt Byrom doing sponge painting.  It was a fab day and you can see from the photos everyone was engrossed in what they were doing.  Gillie was an excellent teacher and gave us lots of encouragement and help and made the process really enjoyable.
