  • Job title

    What is your job title? Are you a self employed craftsperson? A jeweller? A card maker? I used to class myself as a card maker but as I am expanding to other crafts I wondered how to refer to myself.

    Officially Im a 'call desk administrator' which is a posh name for receptionist.

    But my REAL job is what Id like to refer to as 'crafter'.Doesnt really have a ring to it but I suppose it covers lots.

        Hee hee! I just wondered if there was a better way of refering to myself other than crafter? Any suggestions welcome

          The word Artiste(said in a posh french accent)just popped into my head.
          I suppose its what the likes of Damien Hirst is refered to and he makes things too, we just do it with beads or glass etc.

                I've always used 'Artist', even after I gave up painting, it covers just about everything. If you think of people as varied as Henry Moore, Van Gogh, Damien Hirst, Rolf Harris, Rodin, all artists in one form or another. It also saves explaining what a 53 year old ex hells angel is doing making beadwork!

                  Doesnt it ask for 'occupation' on a passport?
                  I dream of the day when I can put artiste!

                  Peter, where you a hells angel??!!

                      Maybe he thought there would be no craft opportunities in hell so he changed his ways!

                        I suppose everything would get burnt with the flames and unless you were going for that look it would be a waste of time making anything! Wakefield is much better!!

                            Oh, you have no idea how long I've been waiting for someone to say that! My art tutor always had us painting onions as a still life exercise, until one term I got sick of it and sketched - the lady of shallot....................

                              Hehehehehehe, took me a while but i eventually realised the shape of her head.

                              Last night I used some of my coffee stained paper(to look olde worldee)and used my old typewriter to write up my version of the story, so I can use it as an original, photocopy it and use it as a background to some craft pieces(recently got some Waterhouse collage sheets from USA).

                              So sad but lovley story.They dont make 'em like that anymore.

                              While we ar on the subject,I cooked a meal last night using my first shallott.
