November workshop with Peter Thornton

Layout and Design for the Terrified and Carolingian

Our annual November workshop came early in the month to accommodate a bit of a tour for our instructor, Peter Thornton. We were second on the list after Vancouver and then it was on to Victoria and Duncan.

There have been many requests for Carolingian over the years and Layout and Design is definitely something that should be visited by every guild! L&D for the Terrified was well worth the wait and we were absolutely heads down the whole day Wednesday with many exercises to keep our minds actively engaged. Each day will be written up and appear in our March newsletter, "The Broad Edge".

Our workshop was not without surprises! Member John Worman travelled from his new home in Hamilton, Ontario to be with us for three days and planned to attend our meeting on the Saturday after the workshop. It was a well carried off surprise if I do say so myself!!

Peter referred to his table as "the surgery" and it was where you could always go for help and direction.

Heads down and working! Louise and Jo are closest to the camera and seemingly unaware of it!

And after the three days, why not celebrate with dinner at White Spot?!

And then it was on to the evening presentation, watching Peter tackle a quote and show us how he would work it out and come up with just the right layout and design.

Thank you John for all the photos!!
