Those of you who have been to one of Kay Lancashire's workshops will know that they are always a treat!
Kay is the owner of Kay's Artycles, an online store and gallery stocking unique findings and supplies for all your jewellery and beading creations. Lucky for us, Kay is also a seriously talented artist who loves to pass on her knowledge to willing students and we had a whole group of them here on the 2nd March 2014, just waiting to learn!
You asked for it and now I can finally announce that I am teaching at a location closer to inner Melbourne! Boutique Beads is a beautiful little shop located at 179 St.Georges Rd, Fitzroy,Vic (Ph.03 9482 4021). Angela at Boutique Beads specialises in vintage lucite beads which I recently discovered go perfectly with polymer clay beads!!
Last weekend (20th June), I taught another beginner's polymer clay workshop at Amya Beads . We have now held 2 beginner's workshops at Amya Beads and both have been a great success.
Whilst it is great teaching more advanced workshops, I do have a soft spot for beginner's. People say to me, 'Don't you find it boring to be teaching so many beginner workshops?'. My answer is always the same... 'No way!'. There is nothing quite like teaching newbies. The anticipation as they walk in the door, the horror on their faces as they wonder how they're ever going to be able to work with this new medium, the look of excitement and satisfaction when they've created their very own beads. Priceless!
