Graduation … not really … sort of

Hi again,

This last week has been busy but not with the usual things in the workshop.  For all the students, except those of us who are in the Master’s degree program, this was the last week of the year.  We spent several days preparing the workshops for visitors–cleaning up and putting out our work for all to see.  Then Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we had visitors in the workshops to see all the interesting work that people have done this year.

There was an awards day on Wednesday for all the students who had won special awards.  I was surprised by winning the Geoffrey Moss prize for making the greatest contribution to the clocks programme over the year.  The award was given by the British Antique Dealers Association.

Saturday was the normal graduation day.  Even though I have not finished my Masters work, I was still awarded a Post-graduate degree for the work that I have completed so far.  The post-graduate degree is sort of like a Bachelor’s degree.  I guess that if I fail my Masters work somehow, I will at least come home with something.

Now the hard work continues for another 10 weeks.  Plenty of testing, research, and writing to go.  Next July, I will come back to get my Masters degree certificate.

There is a sense of accomplishment even though we are not quite done yet.
