Meet the Author

Birdy Heywood has been working with, demonstrating, and teaching polymer clay techniques since 1985. During that time she has created bears, fairy folk, dragons, and most recently jewellery. Bears were her particular favourite for many years as they not only signify to her the cute and cuddly teddy bear we adore as children but also its wild, free counterpart, the wild bear. Birdy always says that even if you follow her instructions to the letter, each bear will have its own personality. Birdy teaches at shows all over the country, and has also demonstrated her skills on television. She recently obtained her Higher National Diploma in Film making, which enabled her to produce her own instructional DVDs on polymer clay techniques.
