Inspiration

Inspiration can come from so many different things and people. This past week, I had the pleasure to spend time with Kate Church and some fellow art doll artists @The Blue Moon Winery. It was very exciting to reunite with like-minded souls doing what we love. The techniques I have learned this past week are going to take me to the next level of creating. Kate Church is an amazing person to learn from; she is patient, understanding, and makes sure you leave with all your questions answered. She makes you want to break new ground and push yourself to the next level and is pure inspiration. I feel honoured to have had this experience.

Weekly Photo Challenge – Spare

I spent the last week at the Blue Moon Winery in Courtney B.C. for an art doll workshop with Kate Church. There was so much growing on the farm, including blueberries, apples and much more. There also was a green house full of delicate flowers being Spared the possible brutal forces of nature; the young flowers are nicely protected from harm during the unpredictable spring showers and changing temperatures of the season.

Off to Play…

The time has come to go off island and play for a week. Learning new techniques at an exciting workshop facilitated by Kate Church at The Blue Moon Winery. That’s right! I am off to play with these 2 pretties – my first ever stuffed animals and art dolls. I look forward to sharing the progress of the workshop as well as some pics from various sites around the Comox Valley.

Workshop with Kate Church

I am getting really excited about the upcoming workshop with Kate Church, on May 22nd to the 27th. This super exciting workshop is being held at The Blue Moon Winery. When I attended last year, I met some incredible new friends, learned some great new techniques using polymer clay, and without a doubt was thrilled to meet Kate Church and learn from her. This year, we are taking the craft of art dolls to the next level and I can’t wait to share with you all what I learn and create. In the meantime, let me share a peek at our homework and our inspiration for the workshop. Wishing you all the best day. xoxo
