Metal clay masterclasses in the UK for 2012

It looks like 2012 is shaping up to be a great year for metal clay masterclasses in the UK. Here are those that I know of. Please do comment on this post if you know of any others that I have missed as I may want to book on myself!

Joy Funnell

Joy Funnell specialises in metal clay and enamelled pieces. I have been fortunate enough to have a one to one class with Joy and I would highly recommend all of her masterclasses. This year she's going from one end of the country to the other!

As yet the programme for the conference hasn't been confirmed but there are many talented members of the guild and I am sure there will be some excellent classes and demonstrations.
