Plastic Fantastic – Anglo Danish Friendly Plastic Course 2015



Rufford Craft Centre, Rufford Abbey Country Par, Ollerton, Nottinghamshire, NG22 9DF

30th & 31st May 2015

We are so lucky to have two outstanding visiting tutors from Denmark for this fabulous weekend.  Barbara Lees and Karin Schmidt are the foremost Friendly Plastic artists currently working in Denmark today, and we get to have both of them for two whole days.  They will be teaching one class whilst I teach another, and you get to do both classes over the two days.

All materials are included in the cost of the course, and you will go away with finished pieces that you can wear, or give as a gift to a friend.

The class sizes are restricted, so you will get plenty of individual tutor time.

Organic Cuffs and Bangles



Barbara and Karin will guide you through their unique and wonderful cuff making process during which time you will learn a lot about how to work in the fascinating medium of Friendly Plastic.  Even if you have taken a class with me, I can assure you that Barbara and Karin work differently and have their own take on things which has inspired some of my own work too.  You can find out more about Barbara and Karin and their wonderful creations hereDSCN6292

Memory Keepers

DSC_8707In complete contrast to the organic cuffs I will be guiding you through a couple of projects for making your own lockets and other items that will hold your memories close to your heart.  From a picture of someone you love, to a cherished fragment of glass, pottery or wood, we will create jewellery that will let you hold your precious memories close to you at all times.



The whole course is suitable for beginners and improvers alike.  One of the best things about these weekends is the friends you make with other students, and the amount you learn from each other as well as from your tutors.

Barbara, Karin and I have many, many years of teaching experience with this medium, so you have the opportunity of getting the best possible outcome from the weekend  in terms of your understanding of, and confidence with Friendly Plastic whatever your level.
