Teaching Away


I got flown out to teach in Fort Smith, Northwest Territories. By plane, this isn’t far, so it was a real treat.

Whooping Crane Guest House

The Whooping Crane Guest house, where I stayed, is run by Christine Aubrey. Lovely place, great food and all sorts of beautiful artwork (Christine is a first class fibre artist on her own).


Of course, I traveled to teach a polymer clay caning class and so I spent a good solid couple of days playing with clay.


As always my students inspired and impressed me. I’m pretty sure I learn more teaching than I teach… or something like that.

    By the photo it looks like you had a wonderful place to teach. Hope you had a moment or two to take in the sights.

    I did! I had time to go wander around and company showed me around a bit too. I’m hoping to get back there for another series of classes and a bit more touristy stuff.

    That looks like a lovely place! A couple of days to play with clay sounds nice, too… it’s been a while since I covered up my dining room table with clay paraphernalia 🙂

    The best part about going AWAY to do it is someone else’s space gets messy! Well not the best part but certainly a significant bonus!
