As previously mentioned I decided to investigate crafting with Polymer Clay. By chance I was amazingly lucky and came across a wonderful lady Karol Male at Coveted Artistry - who makes the most marvelous polymer clay jewellery, and also shares her knowledge and skills by holding workshops.
Attending the beginners workshop in her lovely studio in Dereham I didn't believe I would be able to achieve the wonderful effects in canework she showed us. But with her patient tuition I did. I was so pleased with what I achieved with Karols help (true I do need further practice and to hone my skills). I was completely hooked and all morning I could only focus on what we were doing and hardly touched the tea and biscuits kindly provided. (I know unusual!)
I was determined to attend Karol's Intermediate workshop which I did and I absolutely loved making more intricate canes. However now all I want to do is sit and practice and create with clay. However daily life intrudes, why do I have to work, eat, cook, clean I could be rolling, kneading, blending and creating. Oh well I will fit it in when I can.
I have put in some pictures of some of the work I did in progress and I have to say thank you to Karol not only a great teacher but also a truly lovely lady I feel fortunate to have met. No doubt we will keep in touch and I am sure I will be back for other workshops.
