I have long coveted Gillian's work so the opportunity to finally meet her and have a go was too good to miss. it was a very enjoyable day, along with some very nice people. We were able to look at Gillian's work in the flesh and learn how she makes her characters. Then, with a pattern designed by her, we had a go at making our own versions.
I have photographed him from each side, as the pattern extends around his base. There is also a close up of the painting here:

If you ever have the opportunity to take a workshop like this then do; it was a very creative and stimulating afternoon and I have an object I am exceptionally proud of.
