A contented little weblog in regards to the joyful reward that’s studying


Most likely the factor that provides me extra pleasure than the rest about my life as a working artist is the chance I’ve to share what I’ve realized over 30 years of working with glass. I take the best pleasure from studying the great 5 Star opinions the attendees of my glass workshops depart for me on Google.

In fact, only a few artists ever get wealthy from pursuing their desires. The perfect most of us can hope for is to earn a modest dwelling – to assist to maintain the proverbial wolf from the door – to not less than attempt to not lose cash! However each time that I flip to my husband or daughter (or mates), in what Douglas Adams so wittily known as the Lengthy Darkish Tea-Time of the Soul, and bemoan the truth that I might have had a extra worthwhile profession if I had stayed with working within the media, or in enterprise, then they all the time remind me of the enjoyment that’s achieved when somebody invests in a bit of glass they are going to treasure, or, fairly often, in a workshop to be taught a brand new talent, to find their very own innate creativity, and to have on the finish of it an exquisite work of their very own creation to take residence, or to present to a cherished one.

In fact, life shouldn’t be all the time straightforward. Because the poet mentioned, into each life a bit of rain should fall. All of us expertise tough instances, and not too long ago instances have been harder than for a very long time. That’s why I actually rejoice the truth that individuals who come to the workshops are literally investing in their very own well-being – investing further pleasure into their very own lives – and that’s, greater than something, what I like about my job.

In case you spare a couple of minutes to learn via these opinions of my workshops, you’ll instantly perceive what I imply. My best reward is these great feedback, and seeing the keenness and pleasure on the faces of all attendees. That’s why I’m delighted to ask you, too, to return alongside to 550 Swan St, Richmond and share within the enjoyable. As a result of I do know simply how a lot enjoyable you’ll have!
