Nothing like starting off the week with a really bad pun. Yesterday’s Gold Leaf and Walnut Ink workshop was a shining example of a perfect artful learning group! All nine participants (welcome, Ruthie from Poteet!) played beautifully together, encouraging each other and sharing ideas. This was a process workshop rather than a “product” one – we experimented and developed a slew of artistic options using only gesso, walnut ink and metal leaf. Take a look at the video and check out some of the beautiful results:
I’m excited about the upcoming 2015 workshops and am gradually getting everything linked. Beeswax Collage and Experimental Surface Design on Fabric are almost full, as is the new Spirit Dolls and the Sacred Traditions.
I’d love to have your feedback on workshops – send me an email if you have ideas! I’m headed to Colorado for a few days on Wednesday to see my dear former studio partner, Carol Mylar. A visit to her six years ago inspired me to get back into my art and to develop workshops. So, yay! Who knows what ideas I’ll come back with? Will send a report from cold Colorado Springs. Have a lovely Monday, and thanks for reading SHARDS.
