“The act of creating something out of raw materials has always held a kind of magic for me. Whether it is jewellery or a painting, the process is always a journey through colour, shape and texture.”
After graduating with a fine arts degree from York University and completing studies at The Banff School, Vicki began making jewellery in the late 80’s and through the years she has evolved and developed her work to its current interplay of beads, stones, metal and polymer clay. During 23 years in Muskoka, she owned The Muskoka Moose Gallery and for 17 years founded and directed The Moose Show, Festival of Fine Craft held in the Atrium of the CBC, TORONTO.
In 2014, Vicki and her husband began planning a big move from Muskoka to Prince Edward County where she now lives and works in her newly constructed home just outside of Picton, overlooking beautiful Prince Edward County, and East Lake.
For the past 20 years Vicki has given jewellery workshops in Muskoka and led Beading Retreats in Mexico. She holds a Bachelor of Education from the University of Toronto.
I heard about your workshops on 99.3 County FM. I decided to take the beading workshop by Vicki Sharp and was blown away. Her studio is beautiful, and her patient style of teaching is perfect for a beginner. Look forward to taking future courses offered by Baxter Studio School.
Vicki Sharp is a patient and welcoming teacher, and is an expert at her craft. I’m pleasantly surprised at the beautiful beaded bracelet that I created in a workshop with Vicki. I wear it with pride, having made it myself, and I always get compliments. I would love to take another beading workshop with Vicki.
