Teaching / Classes


The act of creation is one of the most joyous things in my life.  I think when we create, we tap into a part of ourselves we don't get to be in touch with everyday.  I love to see this happen for others as well, and so, I love teaching.  And, if I can save you some time, frustration and materials, in order for you to grow in your artistic vocabulary, then it is time well spent.  Besides, I love being in a room full of people eager to learn something new together and share methods and ideas and tips.


I am teaching a class this August at Beadfest in Philadelphia PA.  

Thursday August 17th from 8:30 am till 12:30pm

Heart of Stone- polymer clay class will teach you how to form and texture these lovely heart focals, paint them and then make them into two different style neckalces.  For more details or to sign up, click here.


I offer a couple online classes as well.  

I have few classes on Craft Art Edu:


Gold Rush: The Rustic Crackle Technique

You learn the secret to making that highly textured crackle, as well as painting techniques, like my other surface crackle technique.  It is packed with things you can use in many new ways!


There is also a FREE CLASS on Craft Art Edu on how to make and paint these fun beads!

My newest class is Carving Polymer Clay with Staci Louise Smith
