2010: A crafty year

It's coming to the end of the year and I am very happy to have been on a number of courses this year to find crafts I enjoy. These course were

Five week evening beaded jewellery course
Five week evening beginners silversmithing
Beginners silver clay
Art Clay certificate level 1
Button jewellery evening class
Resin and silver jewellery
Mosaic taster weekend
Learn to sew: tote bag
Beyond scarves: how to read a knitting pattern

I am glad I live in London and have access (probably) to lessons in every craft. I am a big fan of attending a class. I think it really is a time and cost effective way of getting started with a craft; to see if it's for me. Much cheaper than buying the equipment I need and struggling on my own or with a book. Even if I have decided not to pursue one of the crafts above I always feel the learning is valuable.
I found every course interesting but I will be concentrating on silver clay in 2011. I have already enrolled on the first part of the Metal Clay diploma and I am really excited about it
