Upcoming Classes

I love to take classes to expand my horizon on a particular technique. I do have about 4 classes coming up in the next month or so I wanted to share with you all.

Paulette Insall is an artist whose work I stumbled across one day and instantly loved! Here, see for yourself in this series of painting/mixed media videos:

Part One: The Background:

Part Two: Mixed Media Elements added

Part Three: The Face is added:

I want to learn how Paulette paints her backgrounds and her faces, so I am taking both her classes to learn these techniques from her.

Also, I am signed up for a class with the Pixeladies, whose work I also admire and LOVE! I love visiting their work studio, Deb and Kris are kindred spirits! Go check out their website, they do fabulous work and I especially love their purse patterns. Anyway, they are teaching a crazy piecing class. Shhh…. I already know how to piece this, but I am taking the class to just have fun, laugh, and soak up their creativity!! LOL!

The last class I am taking is another beading class- a crochet beaded rope. Check out the class picture:

I never would have guessed the rope pictured was not beaded with a peyote or other stitch… instead it was crocheted using a technique that hides the thread you are using. Anyway, I am looking forward to learning how to make the rope.

Hugs, Carla

  1. Those classes look like great fun.

    The important thing to remember when learning to crochet a beaded rope is not to get disheartened about having to redo the first inch or so numerous times. Once you get the hang of it, it’s great fun. Good luck 🙂

  2. I love to take classes too, Carla. It will be interesting to see what you do with your new knowledge. Have fun!

  3. Thanks for the tip, Helen! I like this way for crocheting with beads because the thread does not show very much.

    Jan, I would love to see pictures of your mother’s work!

    carie and vicki, I love it when you stop by and leave me a comment!! 🙂
