My 'Ancient Organic' polymer clay workshop is one that I have taught twice now. Once in 2013 and once only a few weeks ago. I try not to repeat my workshops too often however when the demand is there I'm only too happy to do so. I'm so glad I did in this instance as I had a lovely group of ladies up here at the studio.
