Demonstrating at the NEC
As you are probably aware I am a huge fan of Kato polyclay so I was over the moon when I was asked if I could demonstrate with it at the Craft, Hobby and Stitch International trade show at the NEC last weekend. I spent 2 whole days showing people the magic that is polymer clay – I can’t think of anything better to do (well apart from spending 2 days being shown how to do new things with polymer clay!). I was amazed at how many people in the craft industry hadn’t even heard of polymer clay before!
I made a lot of different things – mainly cane work and mokume gane as they are fairly simple to show and impressive to see. Here’s some of what I made.
There was plenty of beautiful jewellery on show in the big glass cabinet, some of it mine and some from other artists such as Donna Kato – it caught a lot of people’s eyes as they were walking past! It was a real pleasure to be a part of the Decoman team!
Since I’ve been back I have been busy working on something I can’t show you yet – so I have been making things for my thing a day challenge but I can’t share them.
Tomorrow I am off to demonstrate at Hobbycraft in Cribbs Causeway Bristol from 10am -1pm. I am also teaching a workshop there next week on Friday 1st March 10am-12.30pm. I still have 2 places left if anyone is interested please get in touch
