This was 1 of a series of courses, for which we made a plan together in November 2019. In the past 9 months she also followed Level 2, Higher, UV-Resin, Kumihimo, Porcelain, Gold, Silver Quilling and Origami Jewelery.
Annemarie wanted to become proficient in the majority of the certified (supplement) courses that are offered by the various Teachers under the Craftlines B.V. flag. Her choice to do so arose from the request to become a teacher within the instructor network.
Shirley de Jong, who works at Craftlines and is the point of contact for colleagues, customers, the manufacturer and suppliers in the field of Metal Clay, offered her this opportunity. And who does not seize such an opportunity? After all, I did that in 2008!
And now at the end of 2019 I’ve decided to stop my work as a curriculum Teacher within the Benelux network of certified Art Clay Silver instructors by January 1, 2023. Annemarie will be my successor, will follow in my footsteps from now on and will work alongside me in our region.
We have now worked together for quite a few hours and she is ready for the job. You will find a number of designs by Annemarie in this blog.
You have not asked much support from me, you have shown yourself sufficiently skilled in working with Metal Clay over the years.
We'll see each other for a few “internship days” and then I'll let you go ;-)
We will keep in touch, after all, we have a trip to Japan together, right?
Thanks again for everything and especially enjoy everything and everyone around Metal Clay!
