Hi to everyone joining me here!

This step-by-step class walks you through the process of drawing a water droplet using just pencil shading.

You will only need basic materials (pencil, paper, sharpener, eraser, a tissue) and you need no drawing experience or skill whatsoever to produce something that looks good!

So if you're bored in your lunchtime break, why not have a go at this fun drawing exercise? :)

Hello there ! I'm Fern.

I love crafts and I love entrepreneurialism, so if I ever have the opportunity to combine the two then I do ! I design and make greetings cards, as well as jewellery, and this year I'm aiming to brush up my sewing skills and learn how to make my own clothes.

I've only recently got into teaching online but I'm thoroughly enjoying it so I hope I can continue :)
