I’m always buying kits with the view of trying new things and seeing what is a good add on to what I already do. This papercutting kit by Emma Boyes available from Katy Sue Creations is brilliant. I wanted to learn the technique as I think it’ll be a great partner to Encaustic art. This is how my first attempt is going.
I can already see the uses for this craft and it is surprisingly absorbing. I hope, despite the latest Covid news, you are finding inspiration in the new year. Let me know what you are getting up to, it’d be lovely to see.
Today I have been getting ready for the Creative Craft and International Cake Show at ExCel London which will run from 4th – 6th April 2019 – S08. I will be running taster Enamelled Jewellery sessions with the Guild of Enamellers – we’re on stand (Z)D28. I just love this event, for a minimal fee you can come along and apply glass decoration to a pre-enamelled blank which we will fire in the tabletop kiln for you – it really enables you to get a feel for how enamelling works. We’ll then make it into a piece of wearable art – either a necklace or a keyring. Pop along and say hello and book on to one of our sessions – I’ll be there on Thursday but the Guild will be there for all three days. You can also find out more about classes run by myself and other enamellers around the South East.
