Lots of new things going on in my studio this spring. To start with, you should know that it is actually a NEW studio. I am still in the Foundry Art Centre in St. Charles but I have moved to a larger studio (Studio 9) on the other side of the building. I am loving the beautiful view of the river and people going by on the Katy Trail. When I tear myself away from window gazing, I have a studio that is almost double the size and is comfortable and perfect for classes and get togethers. See below for more about that.
An Interview with Yours Truly
A few weeks ago I was interviewed and photographed for the Foundry Art Centre blog by Jillian Schoettle who did a fantastic job with both the writing and photography. if you haven’t read it and have an interest, I encourage you to check it out because it really tells a lot more about me, my thinking about my art and why I do what I do.
Workshops: Art Expressed as Felt
I will be teaching a series of three workshops that I hope will be fun for both beginners and felters with experience. If you have tried felting before and thought it was too strenuous this may be the class for you since it will be possible to sit for a portion of the time. There are two felted 2 dimensional art classes (May 13th and July 8th) and one class making a felted vessel (June 10th). If you sign up for all three of the workshops then you will receive a discount of 10% Here’s a link for more information.
Starting May 18th I will be opening my studio on
Thursday evenings from 6PM -8PM for
“Mindful Stitching - a community group for fiber and textile lovers”
You can bring your own project to work or work further on a project made in a workshop with me. Some sessions will include a topic or a demonstration in some aspect of fiber or textile art. You will always be able to browse my library for inspiration. Some supplies will be included as well as beverages and snacks. There will be a $5 charge for the sessions and wool or silk fabric will be available for purchase as always.
I will gladly hold a chair for you if you RSVP for the session. firstname.lastname@example.org
