A small sample of Carol Coleman 's work
Carol Coleman..... Textile Jewellery
Heidi Jenkins..... Beading
Mary Spence....... Designs with Felting
I took the Textile Jewellery course with Carol Coleman, but I know I would have enjoyed the other two courses as well. I have a habit of saying after each course I do, this was the best one yet and I really mean it each time. The standard of tutoring is all of such a very high standard.
We all had a wonderfully creative time. Most of the students attending have reached a very high standard with the City and Guilds courses over the years and it must be very difficult for tutors to find something new and different to teach. I think Carol's work interested everyone and I for one learned so many new things in a few days.
These were some of the smallest pieces from the collection.
More of Carol's work
I have to admit that my images of her lovely treasures are not up to my usual standards, sorry Carol! I think I was too hasty taking them as I wanted to get back to my own work. The largest and best pieces of work were furthest from the light I think. I did get up very early on Friday morning to take photos which Carol kindly told us we could. She was very trusting and left all this beautiful work lying around the whole time for us to touch, study and try on whenever we wanted. You will be able to see far better images of her work on her website Fibredance. This is well worth a visit.
You can also buy her new book there, if you cannot get to one of Carol's classes you will still be able to do the work from this book as it is so clearly written with useful images and captions for those who don't like to read everything, but is also written in detail for those who prefer that. It's a very well written book.
I do hope they like the photos I took as they were carefully studying our work (smile) I know they will be looking at this post at some stage.
Here are some of the things they are studying. The student's work.
