First Students of 2020

Friends Jax and Sarah are my first students of the new year.
I have lost count of how many times Jax has been here and very often she brings a friend which is nice.
Jax has made lots of Bowls and gives them all away to friends so today she wanted to make two bowls for friends in London They were quite big Bowls so she had to have a bit of help with the second one but she did well.
First time for Sarah but she will be coming back soon which does not surprise me she took to it like like a Duck to water.
Very well done Ladies a fun and productive day
