I didn’t expect to be teaching much this year, I really thought that might be it when I stopped organising and teaching my bebeady jewellery making classes last Spring.
So I’m pretty amazed by it all!
Firstly I was quite surprised to be teaching quite a few bespoke 1-1 and small group workshops at my studio this Spring / Autumn.
Secondly and the icing on the cake was being contacted early this Summer and asked to teach a jewellery making masterclass for the British Library in London, linked to their Anglo-Saxon Kingdoms exhibition. What an honour, although I did feel quite daunted by it, having mainly taught smaller groups the past few years, plus all the extra organisation involved with it. Will share some more about it in my next blog post…
“I have really enjoyed my teaching this year, I love to share my creativity with others and help nurture their jewellery making.”
It has meant though, that I’ve not been able to devote quite as much time to developing my new glass and wirework designs as I’d have liked. I’ve just had to be satisfied with making slower progress. More news about them coming up in some of my next blog posts…
Bespoke jewellery making 1-1 and small group workshops
There’s more info about them on my bebeady website. I teach them from mid-February to mid-April and mid-September to mid-November at my rural studio-workshop in Lancashire. You can see some photos of what was made in my 2018 workshops on my Jewellery artist Instagram.
Wishing you sparkles of light!
Thanks for joining me on my creative journey,
