I mentioned it's fun because the place actually have a casual pleasant environment. They serve wine and snacks while you attend the class. They want the classes to be like social classes. Cool eh?
5 years ago I bought a mini sewing machine but I didn't know how to use it nor fix it when the thread got tangled. After a few months, I gave it up. Am so looking forward to learning how to use a sewing machine again. It will be a good skill to pick up even if it is just gonna be a basic one.
Well, I have signed up online but I have yet checked out the place in person. So hopefully it meets my expectation.
But before I began committing some days to man my own craft stall, I will be talking to a dance school's education consultant to see how feasible would it be for me if I were to take a foundation year in dance next year.
Would much prefer the days I work to go round my dance classes. I am looking at Contemporary Dance.
Currently, I am taking a 12-week Contemporary Dance course at Laban in south east of London. This course will end with 3 performances at Blackheath Hall not too far away from Laban itself. We will be dancing to a live orchestra band. And one of the dance items, we will be dancing among the musicians with their classical instruments. Isn't it awesome?
Pray that I will find good suppliers that would give me good prices ;)

This Lady Jaja is actually not a fan of Lady Gaga. But since she was gonna be tagging along to the concert, it gave her a reason to make her 1st piece of artwork in UK.
The time spent to make this blue telephone hat was totally worth it. She had at least 20 people coming up to her just to tell her that they were amazed she made the hat. And more than 15 people asked if they can photograph her. Jaja's artwork was well received. Mission accomplished. Yay!
Please view the auto slideshow of the hat I made from here - from the old blog where this entry was imported.
Tell Lady Jaja what you think! ^_^

It brought me memories of my craze over the miniature stuff I saw in Bangkok. These tiny items are are no bigger than our malaysian 10cent coin. Click here to view some of the stuff I saw : cakes, fruits (durians too!), tarts, vege, eggs & spices, stalls, biscuits in tin, satays, tea & snacks, pastries, seafood. I actually bought some miniatures - enough to set a hawker scene! Will post up a picture of it later.
I have been waiting to post the better resolution pictures of this other clay work I did but the pictures have been stored on an external hard disk that hasn't been so conveniently reached. So meantime, here are some lousy pictures taken with my Sony Walkman Phone w610i sometime ago.

Meantime, here is a photo I took of my friend during her Chinese New Year open house in February 2010. I've just learned how to make the twirling wave effect with my DSLR camera. And I have always wondered how they make the whole picture subtle while colour is focus on an object. So I opened up Adobe Photoshop for trial and error, then voila! This is it...

Had already sold some of these cards at the Flea Market at Sunway Lagoon Club. There was no crowd. Very few people came throughout the whole period from 10am-7pm. Some vendors couldn't stand it, packed and left their booth at 2pm.
It was my 1st experience as a vendor and I stayed till 7pm. Thank God my sales did not only cover the booth rental but also made a little bit more. It was more of the response I craved to see from people towards my art and not the sales. Really.
For next venue, I'll be aiming for Amcorp Mall. Hopefully I can get to register for a booth there for the last weekend of February. Fingers crossed!

Some months ago, was a period when I decided to stop working and to take up a clay modeling course. It's not pottery type of clay but more fun like figurine making like dolls, flowers, tissue box, clocks, music boxes and etc. The centre I went to actually do have a professional artist that specializes in clay design. His art acquires techniques and his precision skill in detail is amazing.
My 1st clay project was to make a tissue box. the box was a ready made box but painted with oil paint for the start. Then I adorned the box with all clay art - pumpkins and leaves, timber fencing and a grey rabbit on top, munching away a tiny pumpkin. I love it to bits. What do you think?

I envisioned myself like a factory always producing creative ideas. This card* was done through Adobe Photoshop. I also did church wedding decor, earring holder box, 2D mascots, clay art & etc.
I will post these art in the near future.
So, stay tune ^_^

It’s 2010 now and it was 2 days after my birthday
that I have made a resolution to stop procrastinating on this.
It has been some years since I wanted to try selling my art.
I have decided to put discouragements and fear behind
and to brave my 1st step by starting a blog dedicated
to the works of my art.
My 2nd step would be to display and market my art at some random bazaars all around Klang Valley.

The theme of this card is for Baby Shower. The spoon was made of plastic while the tiny babe and the water spilled was made from a type of air hardening clay.
