 KIds! Learn how to make paper tissue bowls! 

Put an LED tealight in the bowl and make a night light!

In the upcoming on-line issue of Jump! The magazine for creative kids,  learn how to make fun, simple and easy paper tissue bowls. 

Check out the Winter ART  issue (issue 4) of Jump! The magazine for creative kids for more instructions on how to make the bowls. Bet you will want to make more than one bowl!

Start with a balloon, glue, an old paint brush and tissue paper. Attach the balloon to the table with pieces of masking tape

Cover the top half the balloon with glue and tissue paper- make sure you have a palstic tablecloth underneath your artwork

Tell me what you think of the show at the Artist Reception on Friday evening 6-9pm on January 25!

Some star examples from our workshop last Friday at the Hirsch Center..

We had 11 participants. Many thanks to everyone who came and made it through the torrential rain and hard to find parking spots because of the snow blocking many of the parking spaces. Thank you!

Hopefully the snow should be all gone by Friday, December 14, for our woven Carolina Snowflake class at the Hirsch Wellness Center at Revolution Mill. The class is  1-3pm and all materials will be provided as usual.

The Carolina Snowflake makes a lovely handmade Christmas decoration, that looks stunning hanging from a light, hanging on a Christmas tree, hanging on the wall and as a gift tag ( depending on the size of the gift and the tag!)

The Resolutions 2019 Show will hang at the Hillsborough Gallery of Arts from January 7 to January 31, 2019.

Guest Juror for the awards :Sarah Schroth, Director of Nasher Museum of Art

Show Chair: Alice Levinson

My resolution for 2019: Violence is the outcome in a culture that promotes fear and anger. My resolution: to create guns that can never kill, using the continuous loop of the knitting stitch as a metaphor for our connection with each other.

A reception will be held on January 25, from 6-9pm

Happy Mothers Day: knittted.375 magnum caliber revolver

Wendy’s tapestry progress. Her composition is building up beautifully. Note that the magazine illustration is the jumping off point for her own expression of the path before her

Judi’s latch hook piece expressing her experience of grief: darkness with some light punctuating the black with yellow appearing at the edges

Staci’s piece is about how she deals with working at the hospital while getting treatment: everything is in it’s own compartment and she is working very hard for the compartments to harmonize with each other
