Drawing Roman Glass and Studio Makeover (again!)
Roman Museum in Canterbury while I waited for new lenses to be fitted in my specs.
A small museum, hidden in a back street, you go downstairs to find the Roman mosaic discovered during WW2 with reconstructions of shops etc built around it and excellent interpretation linking finds to where they were discovered. It's very popular with families and school groups but was very quiet when I visited. No sketching stools but the steward kindly found me an office chair - luxury!
Lots of Roman glass , how could I resist the flagon below which was found in Faversham!
stash, repacking it into bigger plastic boxes ,making discoveries, moving bookcases, constructing more shelving. The scene before (above) and after (below).
sewezi tables are also proving indispensable - I can quickly set up my sewing machines in all kind of positions in the room and it adds flexibility to changing studio space.
