I am home again after a VaCLAYtion at Dorothy's Lodge in Chaffey's Locks in Ontario. It was an outstanding experience hosted by Georgia Ferrell of Artemesia Gallery
. The venue was lovely with attendees housed in cabins or bedrooms in the main building and annex. We had a dock with access to a kayak and a canoe and a huge firepit for evening fires and conversation. The autumn leaves were putting on a show and there were photo ops in every direction.
Pat prepared wonderful meals for us while braving wicked heat in unseasonably warm weather.
We clayed for three days.
On Day 1 we made name tags and gave the newbies a chance to get some polymer clay basics.
We had two work areas- The main room was noisy and laughter echoed constantly.
The second work area was in a sun porch and was whispery and contemplative.The Zen Zone.
I taught my Two Day On The Wall Workshop
On Day Two I taught my clay on canvas with crackle technique...
.Day 2 was an introduction to alcohol inks on clay on canvas.
|The completed Crackle Canvases. I hope to share detailed images in Facebook |
as each participant makes their photos available. (hint hint)
