Wowzers! I am completely blown away by the love from all my student's these school holidays.
I loved every second of working with the kids and creating some cool stuff. I have to admit, after every class I am zonked as I really do put my whole heart and soul into every second, but on the flipside, there is nothing more rewarding than watching their joy and their self-confidence grow as they create masterpieces.
Since the very first (polymer clay) class I ever taught, I have been inspired to keep the workshops fresh and exciting and "on trend" for the kids that really love the current trends I try and work into each workshop whilst teaching real skills and techniques... This batch of workshops was no exception.
Beads and Bows was filled with a lot of creative energy. The bows were fiddly and I think all the kids were shocked at how tricky making a "real bow" could be but all eventually grasped the technique and I was pleased to see some of the students who returned to the second workshop wearing some bows they'd created during the week at home.
The Room Decor Masterclass was the first one in this genre I had done (crazy, when my "day job" is interior design for kids) and it was a smashing success. We made Kawaii-inspired jars, re-usable wall planners and some stunning holographic clocks.
All-in-all, the days were a massive success and I will soon be releasing the next schedule with Scrapbooking, Boutique (and funky) Doll House Decorating, Room Decor (different projects to this round) and something for the younger ones too.
A massive thank you to all of you that trusted your kids in my care and to my gorgeous students for putting up with my bad jokes and wonky bathroom tap!
