First Experience With Clay: I found Nan Roche's Book "The New Clay" over about 10 years ago and have been happily addicted since, though I didn't get serious about it until about 2 years ago.
Past Teaching Experiences: I started professionally a year ago with the Rocky Mountain Bead Society's Bead Bazaar; I have given a presentation on my technique to the same society and followed up with a class for them. I have taught, otherwise, to private people (not through any organization). I will be teaching again this year at the RMBS Bead Bazaar and continue to have private classes held for anyone who's interested.

Basic Polymer Clay - As name suggests, basic techniques - simple canes that can be used to make complex canes etc.
Mokume Gane with Metal Leaf - this utilizes color blending, using metal leaf (or other inclusions) in various Mokume Gane techniques.
Words of Encouragement to Novice Teachers:
"I think that polymer clay is such a wonderful medium that there really is no way to make a mistake. Beginning students - I have found - just want someone there to make sure they won't. As a teacher, you're just there to teach basic techniques, offer encouragement and let the student's creativity take over."
