Pre Conference Classes

It'd be good to know what pre-conference classes people are attending. I'm booked on Gordon's Mixed Metal Spinning Prayer Bead class and Michael David Sturlin's Developing an Artistic Identity class.

Great opening day! Michael David Sturlin's keynote speech was thought provoking and set the tone for a full day of interesting workshops.

 

I attended surface decoration by Priscilla Vassao. She had some really interesting samples and videos of the techniques she used.

 

Then Mary Hettmansperger did a session about patinas. She's a great teacher and showed us some wonderful ways of adding colour to copper.

 

Judi Weers showed us how to fix problems with fired and unfired pieces.

 

The day finished with a presentation from Ryota and Dice from Aida about a new Mokume Gane technique they have developed. We saw some wonderful examples of this technique and everyone was very excited about it.

 

Last night's VIP reception is a bit of a blur - but I think a good time was had by all!

The laughter in my Keum-Boo workshop was a kind of, 'you had to be there sorta thing-y'.. I am loving all the hugs and warm friends and being around an incredible amount of creativity.

Great hilarity from Lorrene's class which was next to ours. I'll let her tell you the story but from our side of the wall it sounded like they were all crying with laughter, real hysteria! You don't expect that from a Keum Boo class...

Another great day. Lots of people now arriving so the metal clay contingent is growing. Michael David Sturlin's class about developing an artistic identity had us all chewing our pencils! Lots of drawing and development of design ideas, I even made some small models out of Play-doh. Tomorrow we'll be going into making models in more detail.

Sorry though, no pictures, we had to sign an agreement not to show pictures of what we did.

 

The good news is that Gordon is on the mend. He's even posted on Facebook today so he must be feeling a bit better. Here's another picture of work produced in his class.

Gee, sorry to hear about Gordon. Hope he gets well enough to enjoy the rest of his time there. Send him my best. As well as a happy birthday to Katie ! Thanks for posting. Your piece looks great!
