19 August 2018 • Craft Cubed 2018 Paperclay Exploits

Felicity made made the group of us feel incredibly welcome in her comfortable, light-filled studio. She was knowledgeable and generous with her materials and her expertise. We all left with beautiful pieces of work, keen to keep exploring the new techniques at home.
