Yesterday I spent most of the day with people from Philadelphia Polymer Guild and had an opportunity to share my faux cloisonné technique with them.
What a wonderful and talented group of people they are! I enjoyed my visit a lot. They have such a nice and relaxed atmosphere in the group, freely sharing ideas with each other, supporting and cheering each other. I especially liked the show-and-tell part of the meeting, when many people brought their creations to the table to share them with others in the group.
