Northern Branch Officers
Chairman - Dawn Douglas
Secretary - Sandra Snaddon
Treasurer - Pat Gauntlett
Over the weekend of the 26/27 September, the Northern Branch held a Weekend tutorial with Tracey Sheppard running the activities. On the Saturday members were tasked to create some lettering which included an image, some interesting designs were created. A PowerPoint presentation on lettering and tone control was shown and after lunch, members got back to their engravings, with comments and help from Tracey.
The Sunday subject was flora and creating graduating tones, using a variety stone burs. Once again Tracey gave a PowerPoint presentation showing some of the beautiful work she had completed, stating the burs and tonal techniques she had used.
Before ending the Sunday session, Tracey showed us a full scale design she had produced for a large church window, explaining how she managed the engraving on such a large piece of glass. It would be a stunning window when completed.
As usual we had lovely lunches and our thanks go to Tracey for a very enjoyable weekend.
