Camera Club’s touch of glass

A good turn-out of members attended the meeting last Thursday evening, at the Borders Art Glass studio workshop at Galalaw Industrial Estate.

The proprietor Peter Holmes and his son Andrew provided a fascinating demonstration and brief history of the art of glass making. Throughout the evening, the craftsmen worked with great skill to create two works of art, a fruit bowl and a large paperweight, both unique in colour and random pattern which seamed to occur almost by accident within the molten glass. Anna Lee thanked Peter for an inspirational evening.

The meeting on October 30 will be a review of the pictures produced while on the club summer outing to the Hirsel last June.
