Wednesday Wine & Cheese "Green Collage"

Another fun collage class with Courtney Prahl! This time we used all recycled items. Using a handmade viewfinder she taught us how to look at things differently. Suddenly with her help things such as an L.L. Bean catalog, a tea bag wrapper, and a security envelope became beautiful works of art! Here is some of the "junk" we worked with...

People were so into their projects there wasn't even much of the usual chatter! I think cutting and pasting was great therapy after a long day of work!
Once again, I was amazed at how each person approached their project differently. Everyone did a great job- who knew the "junk" we toss on a daily basis could produce something worth framing!

Mimosa Make & Take "Needle Felted Scarf"

This past weekend we had a very fun Mimosa Make & Take- Needle Felted Scarves! Despite the fact that it was a very warm September sunday, we were getting our fall wardrobe ready with stylish new fall scarves! We started with hand dyed or plain wool/silk scarves and a mound of luxurious dyed wool roving to choose from!

Once we picked out our colors and chose a design to work with, we got down to the felting process. Trying to be careful not to poke our fingers in the process! Here are some of the fabulous outcomes!
