finally, my exciting news!!!

I have a new job!!!  And a full time one at that :)


I am going to be the Art and Craft Supervisor at our new family art cafe, 'Bean & Brush' :)  Although it's not opening until the beginning of May '11 I've got lots to do...starting with some ceramic training yesterday and Monday as we'll be offering 'paint a pot' as well as other craft classes/parties.


This is my new boss, Michelle, she's lovely.  I forgot to take pictures on day 1 but got a few yesterday.  Here Michelle is removing the glaze from the inside of the vase very cleanly...


...mine, on the otherhand, went everywhere lol!  Apparently though, the thing with biscuitware/bisque is to let any mistakes dry first before fixing them-and this wiped off beautifully once it had dried!!!


The training was very much along the lines of producing a piece exactly the same as the tutor's, something I struggled with!  This was only supposed to have one flower on it ;)  


No, this isn't one of mine, but I can't wait to play with glazes to get this kind of effect :)  And how cool and Alice-like are these coffeepots?


And guess what?  You can even stamp on bisque - how cool is that!!! :)

Congratulations Sarah!!! Looks and sounds like your dream crafting type of job.

Does that mean we won't get to do any more classes with you @ Paddys? Will be sorry not to be able to do that as i ALWAYS enjoy the learning curves you set lol.

Enjoy your new job and hope we don't loose you from blogging:-)

I'm afraid that my availability to teach at shops will be limited to The Cubby Hole, at least for now. But I'll be running classes at Bean and Brush, where you'll get nice food and drink too :)
