The Jane, Sue & Gina Show!

A selection of beautiful beaded bowls by Sue Redhead, Jane Wolfe & Gina Dean

I find it amusing that a workshop I created based on bowls and bangles I have been making all my life - has become very popular in the The Experimental Textiles Video Library & Membership. I have never taught this workshop as it is something I have always just - done. Making strange and unusual pieces with random beads has always given me great pleasure - I hadn't realised that it might intrigue others too. 

I decided to film the workshop and see if any of the membership wanted to play with the techniques. My goodness they have been having fun. It just goes to show - you never know!

Students on the video library go through waves of working, there will be a flurry of work and samples on one workshop, then others will start on another. As the member is for 12 months, you can create your work when it suits you. What I love is how they all chat to each other, showing each other their latest work and then discussing how it was made, where they got their supplies etc. As there are members all over the globe, they can help each other, and me, find the products and resources they need.

As well as creating her bowls, Jane has made to gorgeous bangles
