I often open my studio to other artists to teach in my home, but have rarely taught here myself. However a lovely group of ladies asked if I would be willing to teach Dancing Light and yesterday was the day we picked. What a perfect day we had.
I re-arranged the studio (which just may be permanent) to have two long tables lengthwise. That provided the optimum space for everyone and the optimum light.
Here is one of the unusual color combinations that I loved! This one by Ellen who is an extraordinary machine knitter, so I guess color combining comes naturally.
I also loved the use of the hex beads which are more cylindrical and worked beautifully for the spokes.
Here is how Agnes started out....
One of the things I love to do when teaching is share the hundred variations I've thought of for a component, so when I shared the spinner ring concept, Agnes was on it. I gifted each a pretty little light vitral rivoli for their ring center, you know for a bit of instant gratification
Agnes left wearing this!
It was a delightful day of friendship and laughter and I very much enjoyed it. And now......I'll be illustrating, I'll see you tomorrow. Hopefully with the next project done!
