No more polymer clay workshops for the time being

Sadly, I have decided to take a break from teaching polymer clay workshops for a year or so. This year, like previously, there has not been enough interest for the workshops to run. With only one or two, if any, students signing up, it is not viable for the local art centre to run them when they need a minimum of six students.

I will instead concentrate on my own creative work. Maybe in a year or two I will try again, looking at some new teaching material and ideas to try and attract interest in polymer clay as a creative medium.

Work in progress - August 2016

This is what is currently on my studio work table. I think I first started this in October 2014 but I did not get very far with it. It was my first dot mosaic picture but after doing a small portion of it, I decided it would be better to practice on some smaller pieces before continuing with this large picture. Several dot mosaic pictures later, and a house move, I have finally got back to completing it.

Work in progress - August 2016

I have been working on it for the last couple of weeks, particularly making a lot more tiles in different colours. My plan is to submit it for the Hibiscus and Bays Art Awards 2016, which has a deadline of 3 October, if I can finish it in time.
