Today is the day, which is why I got up at 06.30 am.
Together with Renske Dussel from Renske-Art, I drive to Oisterwijk.
We agreed in De Bilt and from her studio we leave at 8:00 am towards the Krekul same location as last year.
Renske Dussel - Dahlia Earrings
Inge Verbruggen - Making bezels
Edith van Leeuwen - Ring with great effect
Annemarie Klappe - Filigree pendant
And myself, Henriëtte van Battum - Ring with Metal Inlay
I myself teach in the mornings. After lunch I participate in the workshop of Inge, making bezels. At 10:00 am everyone is present and Shirley de Jong holds her welcome speech. With Elles Drost they represented Craft Lines B.V., the distributor of Art Clay Silver for the Benelux and they also have organized this day. This includes planning, newsletters, reservation of the location, catering and the closing with a coffee sensation. And of course not to forget the goodie bags!
We are ready before lunchtime. Delicious sandwiches, milk, buttermilk, fresh orange juice and a regional specialty "Brabantse Broeder". Delicious!
After lunch, I attend the workshop of Inge. I decide to design a pair of beautiful earrings and give them a more luxurious look with 8mm. marques facet cut zirconia amethyst. Also in this workshop the different colleagues made beautiful jewelry.
To end the day we are treated outside in the warm afternoon sun to have a coffee and / or tea sensation of Tante Sus. All beverages are freshly prepared at the mobile coffee bar. Something delicious as well? A choice of small sweets is presented invitingly.
At 18:00 we say goodbye and drive Renske and I again to De Bilt. The last stretch home I travel alone, like this morning. What a great day! Beautiful weather, nice colleagues, beautiful jewelry, good food, new techniques.
I'm looking forward to next year and the date has already been announced: September 23, 2018 the next instructors day is scheduled.
In life and health, I'm there. You too?
