Classes for June and July

I have three Friendly Plastic classes open to everyone coming up in the next few weeks, the first is next Wednesday 22nd June at the Husqvarna Studio in Nottingham where we will be talking textures.  The day revolves around creating fascinating textures in Friendly Plastic using a variety of methods and objects. The end results can be used for cards, papercraft, jewellery or textile applications, the choice is yours. This is not a project class as such, it is all about exploring techniques, however if you wish to make a specific thing with all the samples of textures you create, then I will help and advise you on how best to approach it.  All bookings are made directly with Husqvarna, but any queries about the class content please email me.

The second class is on the 2oth July again at Husqvarna in Nottingham and we will be making beautiful pendants or even card toppers made with old lace and Friendly Plastic. If you have never used this medium before, you will be amazed at its versatility and delighted with the textures and designs you can achieve. We will make a number of pendants (or card toppers) using different techniques, and I will show you how to put two hearts together to make reversible pendants as well as making coiled wire head pins to finish off your pieces. The class kit will include enough materials to make 3 or 4 pendants using different materials and a variety of techniques.  Booking is directly with Husqvarna

The third class is at Bojangle Beads in Loughborough on the 31st July, when we will be using Friendly Plastic to make all sorts of jewellery related items.  Bead making, and Tubeads will be part of the day along with a number of other techniques including finishing and sealing pieces.  Please book directly with Bojangle Beads.  There will be a kit for the class which will include enough materials to keep you going all day.

By the way, I have my fingers crossed because the rescheduled date for the next Friendly Plastic show on Create and Craft TV is 27th June at 3pm, but let’s not shout too much about it until I get The Phone Call.
