Recently, I attended Cabin Fever Clay festival, in Maryland.
This was my first year. It is their third year, and a success!
I was part of a group of polymer clay artists attending classes with some very well known
polymer clay artists, who offered classes. I can't remember all their names, and I'm too lazy to get up and find the literature from the workshops. I will include it soon. They were all fabulous, and so gracious to instruct, give tips, little secrets, and always laughter!
This doll was created by Minnesota's own
Maureen Carlson. I took her class she offered in Maryland, on HOW to make your
own doll, where she encourages one to use their own gifts and talents to make a version of the doll, the class was called "Stackables" each piece is placed on a metal rod, that runs through the middle of the piece. So, each piece rotates on this rod. As you spin her dress around, it says
"TRUST, LOVE,PEACE, HOPE, FAITH" and if you look closely, you'll see the words "BE" all around the bottom of the piece, COOL HUH!
The festival was a lot of fun, I met a lot of incredible artists attending the classes, who were very warm, welcoming, and made me feel like I belonged! That's important to me.
I will post photos of the charm swap soon, they are all so special.
A great big Thank you, goes out to Kathryn Ottman for organizing this huge event, she did an excellant job!
Thank you all for the wonderful memories.
