|Great students and a wonderful Instructor, Pam Allen|
Our October 18-20th weekend started with a terrific evening with Pamela Allen and her "TOWNSCAPE Quilts". Stories of making art, sharing art worldwide and Pam had a lot of encouraging words to those who would spend a fun-filled weekend with her creating new small pieces to inspire creative fall and winter work.
Many playful and inspired pieces ended up on the wall and it was certainly a wonderful opportunity to network with great friends both old and new, and share in the creative process. Pam offered hugely important critique and suggestions along the way and provided a great set of handouts to move us through two great days of design play. Many thanks to Pam...
Inspired works using great artist's snippets as a starting point for some new small art "masterpieces"...all terrific.
Stretching in new directions and making work just flow off the tip of your scissors and onto a background can be challenging, but the results are always good fun. With a foundation in place for creating new fibre images that could reflect "your town", the goal of original work was met and the results speak for themselves. WE HAD FUN!
