Classes at other venues

I’ve become a bit more choosy about where I teach over the last few years. It’s got to be beneficial to my students in some way, or there is little point in me loading all my boxes into the car and driving somewhere else I may as well teach my small tailored classes in my garden workshop – those that have seen me pack up at the end of the day know exactly how many boxes I need to load up! One such worthy venue is Simply Handmade based at the Woodhall Business Park in Sudbury. It’s run by Debbi and Colin and Simply the dog who have a lovely premises which is full of colour, lovely handcrafted items for sale and garments awaiting adjustments. Included with your course is a freshly made lunch and a genuinely friendly environment. Oh and there’s lots of parking too. coming up soon is Enamelling (16th March), Silver Clay (20th July) and Encaustic art classes (11th May). All are now available to book on the Simply Handmade website – click on the links above to go directly to those classes. There is plenty on offer, I might have even booked on some of their classes myself.

Crafts beginning with E!

This year I am trying something new at FSC Flatford Mill. A crafting weekend involving two unrelated crafts (rather than my usual jewellery weekend). So if you’ve set yourself the task of learning something new in 2019 this could be just the thing. Spend the weekend in lovely Constable country and benefit from good food, good company and learning not one but two new crafts! I will be covering Enamelling – fusing glass to metal to make several items of jewellery and Encaustic art – painting with molten wax to produce small paintings, it is also ideal for card makers. So what are waiting for? Book here.

1st – 3rd March 2019.  Residents and non residents prices are shown on the FSC website (click on the book here link above to take you there). Wish me luck getting all my equipment in the car!!

Any questions please email me.


More magical silver clay dates added

It’s always the same – where did January go? Although this year I can admit to having decorated my bedroom, which is something I can attribute to that ghastly month. Now almost back on track I’ve started by adding more silver clay dates, which can be booked here. Silver clay is a wonderful way to create a unique piece of treasured jewellery in a fraction of the time it would take with traditional silversmithing, the silver is hallmarkable so no need to compromise on quality. It’s great fun to come with a friend and I offer a discount on the price per person if you do so. Classes in Colchester, dates to suit if those on here do not! Email me for more details.
