Convergence, the biennial conference of the Handweavers Guild of America, is just around the corner and I am in full-on class preparation mode.
I'll be teaching two one-day workshops: Fabric Painting 3 Ways and Art Journaling to Kickstart Creativity. These are both classes I've taught before, but for the past few weeks I've been re-doing the exercises and activities, tweaking the lesson plans and handouts, and ordering supplies, lots of supplies. While the Fabric Painting class is full, there's still room in Art Journaling and you can still register for it. We'll be exploring how to use a sketchbook--as a mood board, a diary, a lab, a playground, a tool for capturing and exploring ideas and emotions. We'll also practice using some basic elements of art such as line, shape and color to convey those ideas and emotions.

I know it will be an all-you-can-eat buffet of all things artistic and textilic. Yum.
