This week has been wonderful. It’s been a lot, with a whole new environment, finding a place to live (forever grateful to my housemates for taking me in), settling into a routine, and getting back into the academic/time to make work mind set. While at the Uni (University) this week, most of my time has been spent being walked through the different tools, and studios and going over safety. I’ve been slowly meeting the other residence and some of the different students. The ceramics studio links to the small metals/enamel/cast/chemical studios which then leads to the wood show, which then leads to the forging shop. It is all a bit of a maze – however it makes for a cool roof landscape:
Everyday for lunch, between 12:30pm-1:30pm the studio’s shut down and everyone leaves for lunch (weird huh… they stop to each lunch here). One day I decided to venture into town for Fish n Chips and find a nice place outside to enjoy. I ended up at St. Andrews, a church in the center of town. Now, I was not impressed with the inside mind you, but the outside and grounds were stunning! Take a look:
Another day, Hannah and I just sat in the field behind the school for a bit while we ate. It’s cold out here and wet. It tends to rain on and off, even with blue sky’s. I’ll have to explore more next week. Cant wait to share the next adventures.
That’s about it for now.
Until next time, take care.
