About Ana

After a career in Accountancy and Finance I have finally realised my dream of having my own Arts and Craft studio. Since childhood I was fascinated with the world of Arts and Crafts and very eager to learn about the many aspects of the subject.

Over 10 years ago, as a hobby, I enrolled at Huddersfield College on a Silver Smith Course. After completing my Silver Smith Diploma I was introduced to Silver and other metal clays. After a few classes with various talented and inspirational tutors in metal clays I knew that this was the career I wanted to pursue.

Now a certified senior Art Clay instructor, I am teaching Metal Clays at all levels:

  • Introduction to Silver and other metal clays, Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced.

Following qualification I attended many Master Classes with some of the best National and International Instructors using various brands of clay. I have acquired many other skills using related materials such as gold clay, enamels and resins.

As part of my learning process I came across polymer clay. This medium quickly became a subject that I wanted to explore. I attended many small courses and now, 6 years later, I am able to teach many techniques including colour, patterns and silk screen skills.

The Studio

I work and teach at my Studio A CAT Art and Craft Studio and bespoke Jewellery Design.

We have excellent facilities. This Autumn we will have completed the work for full disabled access (wheel chair access and a disabled toilet).

The Studio is very well equipped and it has a calm and relaxed atmosphere with good natural light and is located in a quiet area of Heckmondwike, a small West Yorkshire town.
