July saw a double act with Melody and Marshall giving illustrate talks about landscapes. Marshal set the stage by creating a landscape.

This was followed by Melody talking about the ‘rules’ for creating landscapes and running through a few of the alternatives including dry landscapes.

The last weekend in July was our annual two day workshop. With the withdrawal of our original guest artist at the last minute Sandra, Les and Peter were on hand to give advice to members on the development of their trees. The weekend saw a wide variety of material arriving and having the three artists we were able to devote a lot of time to each tree giving advice and teaching some basic techniques to our newer members.
