I've just emailed the local college as I discovered yesterday evening that they do a University of the Arts London accredited, Printmaking course one evening a week, so I might be about to do the thing top of my list. Obviously there are loads more arts and crafts I'd try given the chance.

Wow, it's interesting how many have said blacksmithing, I want to try that too!

Me too for silversmithing, ceramics, glass blowing, wood turning,  NOT blacksmithing, couldn't be doing with the back end of a hoss in my face, Roll Eyes or is that a different thing?
I feel sorry for people who aren't creative, I've always had to do something that involves "making". My Mum always had a Christmas pressy project for me to do for the wrinkly relly's gifts when I was little, maybe it's inherited.

I'd like to learn how to do great things with Fimo (I have loads stashed away) and do more stuff with my kiln - glass fusing, slumping etc and I desperately want to have a go with PMC.

felting, dressmaking (rather than cobbling together Grin), fusing, slumping, stained glass.

Might be quicker to list what I don't want to do; knitting; dry wool makes my teeth itch Shocked Cheesy

Willow weaving - making obelisks and things for the garden.
And polymer clay beads, I bought some equipment but haven't found the time to try it out yet.
But most of all I want to improve at lampworking! Smiley

I'd like to try willow weaving as well - we should go on a course Jill, think they do them at the Willow centre near Taunton but looks like the no more courses this year - http://www.englishwillowbaskets.co.uk/workshop.htm#Supports

I was never very good at working with silver but I'd love to try chainmaille and bending wire to make earwires.

 :)That's a good idea! I had not heard of that centre. I guess the courses are in the spring when the willow is growing or something.

Ooh, not heard of them Rita.  Chocolate making ............. mmmm.  I want to make garden willow, like obelisks and the such like and not sure they do them.  They have some good glass courses though not sure I am up to some of them.

If there are enough of us wanting to do one thing, couldn't we organise something for us?  Might get a better price and dates.
