Sewing, YAY!

I just signed up for a fun sewing course at Homemade London. Found it online. Apparently it has just open its door for business since August this year and its owner was a BBC TV producer for the past 10 years. The teachers they hired are professionals in the industries.

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.

Creative Arts in Dance?

I am in the midst of finding some suitable craft & fashion suppliers for the continual supply of materials when I began selling my crafts. Just last week, more of my craft-for-sale stock have reached me, courtesy of a friend who came for holiday. With some jewelries and crafts, I think I ought to start looking for a good venue to sell something and start getting my own pocket money.

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 ;)
