I am so excited after all these years to have a new separate studio space with a couple of artist friends. It has a show room in the front, large teaching space and separate offices for each of us plus small kitchen and second gallery area. More info and pictures to follow once renovations are complete.
I plan to start teaching there in March. I have missed the teaching, I really enjoy at the trade shows demoing and teaching so want to do more on a regular basis. With so much happening lately I have found myself looking for a relaxing outlet. Last year Marie Browning introduced me to Zentangle, a form of meditative doodling.
Thinking too this would be fun to teach, there are so many variations of tangles. I also want to introduce people who do not ordinarily work in fabric or sew to using it in their artwork. I used fabric transfer sheets to create a Zentangle wall hanging for my first class. It is my whimsical approach as I drew my hand and then added a ring and bracelet. I love Fairfield's Fusi-boo quilt batt, perfect for wall hangings!
