Ok, the latest teaching adventure took me to Lisle, Il. about 30 minutes from Chicago for CREATE. My first class at Create was Handmade Hamsas and Hearts. Actually I had the same line up as in New Jersey! But it is always inspiring to share pics of what folks created. (my next post will actually feature work I have been doing!!)
These were so beautiful…..the hands beat out the hearts in this class! And here is the super nice group of gals who created all these wonderful pieces.My next class was Clay on Clay Quilts. I was a bit nervous about how this was all going to play out, especially cooking everything at the end of class…..but it worked like a charm and almost everyone finished their quilts by the end of class. I was happy to have my sister, Leslie,with me as she was in charge of the ovens!
So here are the beautiful clay on clay quilts!And a group pic of our “quilters”!Saturday was double duty….so my clay quilt class was followed up by a three hour evening class called Brooch the Subject. My Iphone ran out of space to take pics….so I don’t have many from this class….or my Sunday class which was Clay Crowns. This was a small class, only four of us….but it made for a nice way to close the event and relax. It was fun to just sit around one table and create together. I really love how these crowns turned out. Just beautiful jewel-like creations fit for a queen!Liz was a queen, she was in all of my classes and couldn’t have been nicer and more generous with her supplies, including her pasta machine which ended up getting lots of use! Thanks to all of the lovely ladies who joined me in Lisle!!! I really appreciate you signing up for my classes!
