Seminar is officially over and what an event it turned out to be. Preliminary comments have come in and everyone seems to have enjoyed themselves immensely. We can all pat ourselves and one another on the back for a job well done. Here are a few images of our members working hard and enjoying themselves simultaneously. Yes the smiles are all real!
Congratulations to our very own Claire for winning the Seminar Theme Award this year with her gorgeous entry titled "The Cloisters of Cadouin" We are all really proud her acheivement. Thanks to Claire for giving her permission to put a photo of her entry on the website and to Andrea for providing us with all of the images.
