meet sylvie peraud

Maniguette! We first met in England at Helen Cox's Polymer Play Days in Nottingham. She was a student, leading a crew of French polymer enthusiasts - translating like mad. The next time we met was again in Nottingham, this time Sylvie was an instructor for, at the first event, it became very clear, "maniguette" was not only a gifted translator, she was also a very special artist. When the instructors are "oohing" and "ahhing" and nearly wrestling each other to the ground to get a certain black and white backfilled bracelet (Judy won) you know something is up.

Sylvie moves easily from primitive to retro, from organic to pure polymer - I know you'll love her work and her classes, too. I do!
