My name is Carol Paris and I am a beadweaver and bead embroiderer who lives and works in Torphins, a rural village in the NE of Scotland. I am mother to two children and work from home in the company of many animals, including my dog, Dexter.
I am an experienced teacher having taught English in secondary schools for over a decade and now beadweaving and bead embroidery classes for several years. I teach in a bead shop called Bead Pop in Aberdeen and a craft gallery in Johnshaven called Starfish Studio.
I also design my own beadwoven and bead embroiderered jewellery designs. These are sold in various local shops such as Starfish Studio in Johnshaven and Pebble in Aberdeen.
I exhibit annually for NEOS (North East Open Studios) and sell at fairs in the latter months of the year.
I am also available to teach private workshops in your own home or at your own venue. Added to this I am available for parties for small groups of older children, aged 8 and above.
