|Late night in bar = this breakfast table|
Anyway, Caroline materialised soon afterwards and we started to get the show on the road. Caroline manned the check-in desk and I manned the Conference room.
Every year we are supported by various publishers in our goody bags for attendees. This year we had help from PGUK, Eddison Books, Schiffer and Carrie Paris (although Carrie's Siren's Song Lenormand is still getting printed!)
We had lots of lovely attendees this year. In fact we sold out of places! We were joined by Kim Arnold (London) and Kirsten Buchholzer (Verbandes Tarot e V - Germany)... Barbie Davidson and Linda Marson (Australia) and Rashunda Tramble (Switzerland) .... along with the many other well-travelled TABI members!

After lunch it was over to Emily Carding to explore the use of Tarot and Sigils. Drawing from the ability to create compound images with her Transparent Tarot and Oracle, we set out to explore making sigils using standard tarot cards. With an amazing ritual at the end of the workshop, we had a blast!

Then it was the turn of our last speaker, Julia Jeffrey who had accompanied me down from Glasgow. Julia is the creator of The Tarot of the Hidden Realm and we had the opportunity to work with her beautiful deck, exploring various Hidden Realm spreads.

For almost everyone it was over, but for us travelling back to Glasgow, we had one more night in Aston and then home. And what a lovely evening that turned out to be - both our Australian attendees, Linda and Barbie, were there, as was Rashunda our attendee who was flying back to Switzerland on the Sunday. We had a lovely .... and slightly irreverent ... bar meal and glass or two of wine to unwind.
And then on Sunday, it was the long (and not uneventful) drive back up the M6, the M74, the M8, the ferry ........ and home :)
See you next year!
