Heartfelt Workshop, April 21

I'm very excited to be offering this workshop. Felted hearts are for me, now, what fairy houses were a few years ago - they make me happy and I can't stop making them. I thought it might be a fun workshop to offer, especially with Mother's Day and the wedding season coming up.

Creating a heart is an opportunity to put loving thoughts into an object that then can become a meaningful gift for a mother, baby, bride, or other loved one (you could include a written note of the thoughts you've carefully put in your heart).

Come enjoy the peaceful and heartwarming experience of needle-felting. You’ll learn basic felting principles, create a heart or two of your own, and go home with all you need to know to make more. This class requires no specific skill.

Class fee: $65 (materials included)
When: Sunday, April 21, 2013 from 1–4:00pm
Where: Grove Gallery,325 Grove St., E. Lansing

Grove Gallery

So much water has gone under the bridge since I last wrote here that I'm just going to start with the present and move forward. In January I joined the Grove Gallery in East Lansing. It's a charming space with some great people, located at 325 Grove Street,just north of Ann Street (by the 7-11) in East Lansing. Grove is growing and fine-tuning all the time as resources allow. Working with the gallery is a creative process in its own right. I'm showing a number of media; encaustic, clay, acrylics, pastels and sundry others. I should be teaching some workshops there soon. Please come check us out. Jenny Schu currently has a wonderful bead and weaving exhibit worth seeing.
