Here's the book I made in Chrissie Hinds' class. I knew the activity would be challenging for me as I have difficulty in learning things that have to be exact, like the Coptic stitch. Chrissie helped me through it and I have now made my first actual book, as opposed to altered books or books stitched together any which way! Note I'm not showing you my stitches. Still, now that I've done it once, I'm looking forward to trying again.
A bit of the crowd at Vendor Night
Janet from my Wabi-Sabi class kindly womaned my table for a while so I could check out the rest of the tables and booths. Janet also introduced me to that Southern staple, Waffle House. We don't have them in Portland, but wish we did--they make a mean waffle.
This coming weekend: Annual Mt. Tabor Art Walk!
I'll be hosted by the talented painter, Helen Snyder. At the website you can see work by all the participating artists and download a map to the artist sites. Besides seeing a wide variety of fine art and craft, you'll catch a glimpse of some lovely gardens in the area. Come support your local artists--hope to see you there!
Off during the day? Join us at Papers Primavera, a new class at The Art of Your Life studio.
Celebrate spring by creating delectable hand-decorated papers! You'll learn how to create your own moldable form stamps and to use them along with inks, markers, acrylic paints, and other media to decorate several kinds of papers. You'll leave with a collection of unique papers for future art projects and gift wrapping.
Tuition: 65. Includes supplies and a light snack
