Stuff is percolating along at Purple Barn Studios. After way too many red-tape delays from the local zoning and planning boards, I finally got the castle keys and I’m moving in today! I have lots to do and organize before I can think about resuming sculpting, journaling, and painting.
My first goal is to prepare for my first official Open Studio night on Aug.10, 5pm – 9pm. Call or email me to reserve your space ($6). I’ll be sculpting more Whinestoppers for my show that evening, but others can bring any current project that they’re working on. They can also bring their dinner and pop it in the Mic! I can assure there will be lots-o-fun and laughs!
The first workshop is Introduction to Sculptural Needle Felting with Pittsburgh doll artist Joyce Compton. Joyce recently won an award for her entry “Wild Hare” at the Artistic Figures in Cloth (AFIC) 2011 show in Columbus, Ohio. Along with teaching her felting talents, Joyce will be sharing her wonderful creations! The workshop is Saturday & Sunday, September 17 & 18, 2011 from 10 am to 5 pm. (Workshop $65, Kit Fee $15). Call me to register and let me know if you need Sat. night accommodations). This felting skill is new to me (after I stated very emphatically that “I don’t have time to learn one more skill!!”) but I can hardly wait to do it again cause it’s mucho fun!
Back to my packing, unpacking, hauling, putting away, and hanging (curtains, not me ;-P). Wish me luck! And stay-tuned for pics!
