About Ana

After a career in Accountancy and Finance I have finally realised my dream of having my own Arts and Craft studio. Since childhood I was fascinated with the world of Arts and Crafts and very eager to learn about the many aspects of the subject.

In 2006, as a hobby, I enrolled at Huddersfield College on a Silver Smith Course. After completing the Silver Smith Diploma I was introduced to Silver and other metal clays. After a few classes with various talented and inspirational tutors in metal clays, I knew that this was the career I wanted to pursue.

Now a certified senior Art Clay instructor and recently qualified with an Australian Metal Clays teachers Diploma, I teach Silver and Base Metals at all levels:

  • Introduction to Silver and other metal clays, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

Following my qualifications, I attended many Master Classes with some of the best National and International Instructors using various brands of clay. I have acquired many other skills using related materials such as gold clay, enamels and resins.

In 2008, as part of my learning process, I came across polymer clay. This colourful medium quickly became a subject that I wanted to explore. I have attended various courses and now. I am able to teach techniques including colour palettes, construction of canes, Mokume Gane, Skinner blends, silkscreen skills and more.
