Upcoming Classes

I will be teaching a couple of classes in a couple of weeks in Colorado Springs, Colorado at the wonderful "Blue Twig Studio", owned and operated by Deb Prewitt.
These may be the only classes that I teach this year so grab them while you can!

The first one is a short evening class.
We will be making what my father in law refers to as "hobo gloves", more commonly known as fingerless gloves (I like the other name better).
I made them after I found a book by Natalie Chanin in the library.
Imagine my surprise when her third book had a pattern for a similar pair in it!
Great minds and all that, right?
I did use portions of the stencils in her books (or website) on some of my gloves. Some of the designs are my thermofax screens.

This is actually a skirt made using the same technique.

It will be a fun-filled, learning extravaganza...I assure you.
Check it out here.

The second class is one of my favorite classes.
A handmade book.

Collage making, textiles, papers, fibers, threads and vintage ephemera.
Hand stitched pages.
Beautiful story telling in a book.
I have spoken of this class before - here and here.
Please join us as we craft a one of a kind handmade book that will be the envy of all of your friends (and enemies).
