  • from a phone call.....

    I did two childrens beading parties this weekend. One for a group of eight year olds and the other for a group of 12/13 year olds. i relly love doing the parties because it's great to encourage artistic tallent.
    This morning I recieved a phone call from the mum of one of the 12/13 year olds who attended the party, with a proposal.... Would I run a teenagers weekly bead class. We spent an hour on the phone wading through possibilities and problems and decided in the end that it would probably be best to run a crafting group for teenage girls. I'll intoduce them to the joys of all the crafts I so far know about (can't believe how long the list is) and then I'll learn some more.... isn't that just a great excuse!!!
    The class will be held at mine for 6 girls and run on either a weekly or fortnightly basis.
    I'm really excited!!
    I wish I'd had something like this when I grew up!

        The mum of this particular girl told me that she's not got into choirs and music or sport or guides etc and that she loves art, but is so soitary with it. I'd love to help her out by providing a social situation to shine in!

                  Great idea!! My year 10 form loved it at Christmas when I took in beads for them to make some rings and bracelets to sell for charities week.

                        Isn't it amazing how word gets around and my motto is "you never get a second chance to make a first impression" and in your case you obviously made a great impression!

                        Well done and I hope it's the start of something great.

                          Congratulations. You must be a great teacher as well as a great crafter.

                          As others have said, I wish there had been something like that around when I was growing up (in the middle ages!) although I was lucky in that my Mum was a great needlewoman and the lady next door taught me to crochet.

                          If only one of the attendees goes on to become a great crafter then it will all have been worthwhile.

                          Would love to get updates occasionally to see how (and what) they're doing.

                          Linda

                              How exciting, not only for the girls you'll be teaching but for you too, its brilliant taking on a new challenge like that - realy gives you something to get your teeth into and sparks lots of new ideas

                              Have fun!
                              Congratulations
