upcoming workshops!



I'm very excited to share my first big announcement of the year. I will be teaching three classes at the Squam Art Workshops in June! I first heard about Squam last September, when Grace of design*sponge reported about her incredible experience, here. It sounded phenomenal, and I couldn't wait to find out what classes would be offered in '09. You never know what's right around the corner! I have to keep reminding myself of that. Because of it's initial success, Squam expanded their annual workshops this year to include a second session in June, based primarily on textiles. Yipeeee! I am absolutey thrilled to be teaching two half day classes on working with burlap and one all day workshop focused on fabric printing with nature-based stencils... created by the participants. I've been so immersed in both these mediums for the last year and can't wait to share what I've learned in such a fantastic setting. If you live anywere near New Hampshire, or would like to visit in June (I have family nearby and know from experience that this is a stunning location and the perfect time of year), please give this some serious thought. The line-up of inspiring classes is breathtaking and the list of dynamic teachers is thrilling, I mean thrilling. I will be teaching along side some of my heroes, so I am trying to remain elated and not go down that road of intimidation. No easy task, but the amount of enthusiasm and confidence I have for my workshops is keeping me grounded... and giddy. Simultaneously! Here are some direct links to more info:

  10. Thank you friends!
    Liana, Your photography questions made me so happy! I love to take pictures and try to do my best, but I'm self taught and have a point and shoot! I do love my camera, but would love to upgrade someday. I use a 7.2 Sony cybershot. I have learned that you must take many pictures to have just one you want to post. I also process them with Picnik when I'm not satisfied with them. Hope that helps!

  11. Woohoo! Congratulations! And ~ I'm coming! I'm actually a Winnipesaukee girl, so it's not too far a drive. I just have to go to NH a month early. So maybe it's a big deal, actually. But I don't want to miss it. This looks so fun. What a lineup. Crazy to end up meeting on the East Coast, after all.
