Our class with Elin Noble at Arrowmont
finished yesterday afternoon.
It was sad to leave everyone -
so some of us headed down the hill to Jose's
for celebratory and good-bye libations.
Jose did not disappoint!
After dinner, several of us gathered
in the second floor lounge at Hughes.
I did a bit of knitting,
others read emails,
but most of all we just laughed
and chatted about our great class.
Then the sandman called,
and we all headed off to bed.
During class yesterday,
Elin did a few demos and then
we puttered around doing whatever techniques we wished,
with Elin circulating amiably.
The photo I've posted above is of some of the work
done in our class during the week.
Not bad, huh?
My table was not next to the hanging wall,
so I had my own display board.
Here are a few of my pieces:
this is a potato dextrin resist piece
that I did on linen which I had dyed
More classmate photos....
this is Holly:
and this is Tommie:
It seemed that I couldn't catch a few folks
so forgive me for these shots!
This is Caryl:
Here's Emily (and friend?)
Another shot of Holly,
joined by Vernon, who was our fabulous class assistant!
Vernon was busy helping ALL of us ALL the time -
and so kind and friendly.
I loved getting to know him -
he had such a great sense of humor.
And this is Ricky,
who did some amazing t-shirts:
and last, but certainly not least,
Claudia: my partner in crime:
Claudia is an accomplished bookmaker and came into this class
not knowing much at all about what we were going to do,
but caught on very quickly,
and went home with beautiful silk discharged
for both a jacket and a vest!
Very focused and productive!
And this is Elin -
always calm and kind,
and so full of information!
I regret not having photos of Diane and Mim.
I loved my week at Arrowmont,
and cannot wait to return!
thanks for dropping by!
Peace to you!
