Summer adventures to creative adventures…

IMG_20160802_153943589_HDRAs our summer adventures draw to a close, it is time for me to start thinking about getting back into my workshop…it has been a while! I am hoping to work on my fish bead class (a student request) plus I still have several metal working tools to actually try out, to make my enamelling more unique. I’ve booked a week’s leave from the gardening project I work on to actually finish off lots of jewellery for my Etsy shop, plus I have several classes coming up in September. In other words my adventures with the children during the summer get swapped for creative adventures in my workshop during term time. If only I could do both at the same time!

Summer hols and Summer school

I have however squeezed in a few classes and now find myself preparing for this week’s summer school! Notes are printing as we speak and mandrel are drying in the workshop, is there time to squeeze in some bead sculpting before beadtime? Mmm I think it is a necessary therapy!
