I’m embarrassed it has taken me a full year to find these pictures in my computer. Sometimes I do dream of having a personal secretary, but since that isn’t likely, I hope you will stay tuned for upcoming entries with pictures from the North Cascades Institute 2011 workshop. I still remember clearly how hard everyone worked, taking the natural materials that most had never touched before, and creating a functional object of their own design. It was a delightful challenge for Elizabeth Unsell and I to keep up with these ambitious students, but the rewards were uncountable. I hope these pictures, and those soon to follow, can give a hint of the great time we had together last August. Elizabeth and I are looking forward to another wonderful artistic exploration with NW plant fibers when we teach at the upcoming Artist’s Retreat at NCI this September.
More to come soon…..
