My jewelry course is finished until mid January and I will miss having access to the array of jewelry-making tools and equipment that the school offers. (Surrey Adult Education, I love you.)
Most of all, though, I will miss the camaraderie and fellowship of my classmates and tutor, Vicky.
I spend most mornings working in my own little workshop, doing the best I can under my own direction and without anyone with whom to talk or share ideas. When I run into a snag, I generally unplug everything in the shed and walk straight to the kitchen to get some tea and a biscuit. I think you could say that I’m a quitter.
I’m very much looking forward to next semester in the workshop. And the tumble polisher.
