Teaching again

Last week I began teaching Beginner's Beadweaving classes at The Sydney Jewellery School, Rosebery, NSW. (also known as The Eclectic Studio).
It is a one night a week class for eight weeks teaching all the basic bead-weaving stitches.

Later in the year I will be running two one day workshops. One workshop will be to teach 
a Cellini Spiral project and the other is a "Caterpillar" necklace.

I used to run workshops in my home so teaching in a classroom as big and as well set up as this is wonderful. Teaching in attractive, colourful surroundings is all that much more enjoyable. 
Above is a long shot of the classroom and the nine students I have. Heaps of room for more people.

If you look at the board behind you will see other classes coming up and you can also follow details of the school through Pinterest.

If any Sydney-siders would like any further information on my classes you can contact:

My first published pattern in Perlen Poesie Magazine

I am pleased to announce my first pattern titled "Summer 2012" has been published on page 26 in the latest Perlen Poesie Issue 13 magazine.

I have been learning the Corel Draw graphics programme and this has been my first pattern. It took many, many hours to create and I am not too sure I like doing the graphics but I persevered and finally finished it.

I kept this secret as part of me didn't quite believe Perlen Poesie would publish the pattern. Well now I can let people know.

Anyone who subscribes to this magazine, and to my blog, I would really like to hear your comments on the necklace.
