Melissa Burdon Workshop

10 WQC members attended a workshop with Melissa Burdon on the 11th and 12th July.
We had to choose a suitable photo and send it to Melissa at least 2 weeks before the workshop.
We were then sent the photo back to print out.
There was a good selection in the class with 2 people, 2 dogs, 2 cats, 
a flower, plant, bird and even a snail.  
The following photos show the black and white poster and the original photo.
