It has been a fabulously busy time over the last couple of weeks, not least with lots of face painting! It has been great to not only celebrate birthdays with some great little people but to be part of an amazing local fundraising event in my village of Longstanton celebrating St George’s Day. I arrived straight from a party to be kept busy with a queue through the whole event and for an hour after the official finish time ;-). I think we were the last stall to clear away.
Face painting is quite a new skill in my range but I have to say I love it! The mirror moment when people see their face after having it painted is priceless and very satisfying. I love how you can completely change someone’s face, almost so you no longer see them but they become someone or something else completely, all with a little bit of paint and a few minutes.
I guess it’s a lot like clay in that the possibilities are endless!
It’s a busy week this week as the summer term courses are staring back and all three are running this term which is great. There’s still time to book on for the Thursday classes (10am – 12pm or 7 – 9pm) or I’m happy if you’d like to join the Monday class a week in (10am – 12pm) so just let me know.
The 2015 Saturday workshops programme is also kicking off this week with a fabulous ‘Spring’ theme. For this one I’ve split the day in two so you can attend one or both depending on what you’re interested in, how much time you have and your budget :-). The morning will be making flower tiles and the afternoon we’ll be making clay baskets.
The next Saturday workshop will be the 16th May and is 10am – 3pm to build your own large coil vessel.
There’s also a chance for the children to have some clay fun on the bank holiday weekend with a ‘clay play day’ on Saturday 2nd May.
If you’re interested in any of these please have a look at the classes and workshops page or send me a message/email or give me a call.
I’m also available to teach privately if you prefer and I can take clay out to groups (or up to 12 can come to the studio) if you have a group that would enjoy trying their hand at making something in clay. Feel free to get in touch with any questions or requests.
