Meet the Tutor

Angela Smith

Angela Smith is a polymer clay, beadwork artist and tutor based in Northampton.

She first discovered beads while at university, but when she happened upon polymer clay at a bead fair it seemed a logical progression to start creating her own beads. Fast forward a few years and Angela now divides her time between beadwork and experimenting with surface techniques and millefiori caning to create one-off sets of beads and cabochons to incorporate into her beaded designs. 

Not content with ‘just’ creating beads, Angela also uses polymer clay to create cute clay characters and bespoke miniature tableaux to commemorate that special occasion.

As well as the joy of creating Angela also enjoys spreading the polymer clay word and is a regular tutor and exhibition co-ordinator for the British Polymer Clay Guild.

Vicky Jackson

Vicky was born and raised in Falmouth Cornwall and is inspired by all things in nature. She has been creating forever, but after a 2-hour throwing session many years ago, she had an overwhelming feeling of being at home (in the studio setting), from that moment on she has pursued ceramics. Vicky now lives in Torbay and has a studio from which she indulges her deep joy in mud, focusing on her creativity and getting absolutely lost in time in her clay space.
