Taster session

On Tuesday Cherry joined me in the workshop for a taster session. She turned up wearing the most fabulous necklace made from chunky wooden beads which she'd painted in gorgeous shades of dark blue and orange. I'm kicking myself for not taking a picture of it!

Inspired by that necklace Cherry chose orange and blues to work with to make her beads. And here are the results - aren't they brilliant?

If you're inspired to come along for a taster session - or indeed a longer course - have a look here.

Finding a style

I had a fabulous morning in the Let Fire Inspire workshop today - one of my regular torchtimers, Doris, came for a torching session.

Doris had originally come to me with some experience at the torch flame already, having done a course with another tutor far from home. She's local to me, and wanted the opportunity to continue her passion at the torch flame using the set-up in my workshop.

Over the months Doris has amassed a rather lovely collection of beads! You'll notice that where my style is 'little and round', Doris loves to make large, bold, long beads - she has really found her style at the torch, and I absolutely love that!

 Doris loves experimenting with bright colours, bold shapes and swirly effects! She's one of my 'torchtimers', meaning she works independently on her own projects at one of my workbenches. I've loved watching her create these gorgeous beads - and I can't wait to open the kiln tomorrow to have a look at the batch of beads she made this morning! Let fire inspire? I rather think so!
