Default Hi to everyone from the UK

Hello everyone, I am a ceramic and mixed media tutor from Oxford UK. I have over the past year been experimenting using inks and acrylic onto fired bisque (ceramics), and looking to share ideas with others.

I stumbled across this forum by chance and love it!!

Andy

Hi Andy, welcome! Inks and acrylics on bisque sound like fun - I'll check out your blog later once I've caught up with some work.

Hi Andy and welcome from New Zealand! Your work sounds fascinating. I see you work in silver clay. Have you done anything with polymer clay? Hope you continue to enjoy the forum.

Thankyou all very much for the warm welcome.
Hi Parkes,
I used to run courses with fimo a while back teaching basic stuff like millefiori and making skins for pottery items, I am no expert but it was lots of fun!!
I work with Art Clay and teach silver fingerprint jewelry mainly .... I do not have the patience to teach the teachers certification!!
Do you work with silver clay?

Hi Andy,
I love playing with Fimo. I make jewelery, and embellishments for cards with it. I haven't done anything with silver clay but have seen it at craft shows and it looks amazing.

Hi Andy, I love your courses! I sent you an email about coming out to Bahrain to teach some, and would love to add stamping to those techniques. Please contact me. Anne
