So...

... I didn't manage to get any clay on Thursday or Friday. The supplier is a couple of towns away so I tried ringing before I went over to collect (as they suggest) but I just kept getting the answering machine. It's a shame because I've been having some great ideas (or they will be if they turn out right!) and I really wanted my nice white clay to work with. This particular clay is supposed to be pretty good at holding it's shape and not prone to shrinking so much either.

I have news about classes... I had already re-enrolled on my current class but I was ringing round trying to find other classes. There was one in the next town, which was nearer than the one I go to, but it's not running for some reason. Mind you, it was twice the price! Not sure why that is. But then I found out there was another class in another nearby town, which is run by the same council as the one I was going to and held on the same night, so it was easy to switch courses, which I did! It was a bit of a snap decision so I hope I am not jumping out of the pan and into the fire! I will find out in January won't I?

Also, I came across more courses but they are quite far away - I'm guessing it would take me about an hour to get there. I am seriously considering taking one of these courses though because there are various levels and they seem much more tailored to the individuals needs. The price is roughly the same too, which is great considering they sound so much better. The distance puts me off though, especially as I won't really know what the class is like until I start it. I wish I could go for a "taster" first. I shall have to decide soon though because they start in January!
