Wet-felting workshop was wonderful

12 12 2010

Yesterday was the latest wet-felting workshop. It was privately booked, with the understanding that I would guarantee the class , but if additional students were interested, I could register 2 others.  We held the class with 2. Although there were numerous inquiries about the class, everyone wanted to know when the “next” one is. The answer is generally the same….. whenever you book one, and then I will advertise to add to it. I book my classes based on demand.  If a student is available, and wants to book for 2  people, I’ll guarantee the class, and attempt to increase registration.That way, when the weekend is reserved on my calendar, I definitely have a class, and you are guaranteed a class, rather than receiving a cancellation at the last minute.

Anyway, here are some pics of the class. We had fun, and the hats were precious. We made hats, and embellishments.

Youth Weaving class

18 07 2008

I finally finished the weaving class with the kids.  It was wonderful, and I start another one next week.  These are half day classes, so some of the kids want a week of full day classes.  It’s a possibility.  If things fall through in Conn. in Aug. we can do it!

Anyhew, here are some pics, and then a link to where you can see the rest, as well as my many, many photos of Touchstone Center for Craft, where I taught last week.  None of the pics are of my own class, as I was constantly on the move, shooting other people. But you might like to know how nice this residential art center is. I had 8 students and the age spread was 10 years, which is larger than the ideal age spread of about 3 years, but what can you do?

Here is one of the girls who took for the first time, but was a very prolific weaver.  Her rug wound up bigger than she is!

What an accomplishment - Congrats
