A Pastel 'Mug Shot' with Margaret Glass

Updated: Jul 9

The materials list is quite simple for this Arty Class:

• A mug with your tea or you can just leave empty

• A set of pastels (Margaret uses very soft pastel)

• Paper - any size (Margaret paint on very fine sand paper, but you could use pastel paper or something like sugar paper that has a bit of 'tooth' to the surface)

"This is my mug which I would like to describe as having lots of character. It's definitely not as good as others but oh well. I would also like you to pass this message on the Margaret:

I had loads of fun doing the pastel though I think it went slightly wrong in terms of shapes I don't think this reflects how much I enjoyed it but I did. Thank you!!

Thank you John for hosting another super fun Arty Class that really feels like the only thing getting me through these strange times."
