Vancouver Island Polymer Clay Artists Guild Meeting

Today I went to the VIPCAG Meeting here in Victoria. We're planning "Sojourn" -a polymer clay retreat in Nanaimo in February and there was much to discuss. There will be a terrific selection of workshops and demos by Canadian polymer clay artists Tina Holden, Wanda Shum, Cheryl Trottier, Joan Tayler, Georgia Ferrell, Barb Alexander and myself. We'll also have vendor tables and a silent auction. There's a lot to do but we have a terrific organising committee and we're all very motivated and excited.

Once we finished discussions we hauled out the clay and had a great time making ATCs (artists trading cards)... With the Christmas season, kids with flu and craft shows our numbers were down but we still had a wonderful day together.

Here's Kristine and I with Liz in the background. More pics asap.
Our meeting was at the Scouts Hall in Fairfield. There are very old and quite wonderful murals on the walls- 1920s-30s? There is a sign in the hall asking for any historical source info.... they sure piqued my curiosity. You can see a bit of one in the background.
