As I work from home, and pretty much on my own, I like to try and make sure I have a couple of things scheduled to do in the week. Over the last few months I’ve been doing upholstery classes at college and silversmithing classes at Quay Arts.
Very different subjects – but both give me the chance to be learning something (always good), to be doing something creative (also good) and to be spending time with other creative people.
So instead of looking forward to an afternoon and evening out tomorrow, I’m feeling rather bereft, as both classes have been cancelled.
However it does now give me another evening to spend melting glass and making beads. Yesterday I received some goldstone and bluestone ribbons – millions of little sparkles set into glass.
