I am really excited to announce that registration has opened for the autumn dates of four of my courses! I will be teaching iPhoneography, Art Journaling, Blown Ink Artwork, and Needle Felting classes through Main Line School Night, a local continued learning center. I’m really looking forward to the classes and sharing my love of each craft with the students. If you are interested in taking one of my classes you can find more information on the Classes Page, but here’s a brief overview with a few examples for each class.
***UPDATE: The dates for Needle Felting & Blown Ink were reversed and have now been corrected. My sincere apologies for the mistake***

Prompts and project ideas are provided, but feel free to follow whatever paths your heart and mind long to wander. Life is a multi-sensory experience, now your journaling can be too!
Needle felting is a popular fiber craft in which wool fleece is sculpted, using a special barbed needle to stab it into shape. Using a few simple techniques you can create many different pieces from jewelry, embellishments, décor, and ornaments to toys, wool pets, sculptures, and dolls. You can also appliqué the fleece onto your favorite bag, hat, scarf, and other items. Inthis class you will learn a variety of needle felting techniques, create your very own broach, accessory, sculpture, or appliquéd embellishment and go home with all the materials you need to continue felting!
November 2012 :
There is an artist in everyone and blown ink is a fun way for anyone to create dynamic and captivating pieces of abstract art. All you have to do is take a deep breath and blow! Have a blast creating twisting forms by blowing ink around on paper and experimenting with resists, colors, canned air, and other techniques. You can even illustrate your blots to create animals, flowers, monsters, and more.
If you have any questions about one of my courses, don’t hesitate to email me. I would love to see you there!
Another exciting thing is that my photograph “The Ritual” appears on the cover of the course catalog with one of my art journal pages on the inside cover. Check it out:
