Yes, Fabrications week was so great, it needs two posts!
This time I will talk about the Retreat in General. It is a 5 day event (six if you count the opening reception the night before classes start) that is workshops aimed at fiber art junkies. People go there to do wild and wonderful things with color and fabric. And we have this lady; Cathy Arnett, to thank for our week of fun and learning. Thanks Cathy!!
There were many wonderful works…
That surrounded us…
As we soaked up the great atmosphere.
We had three incrdible workshops to chose from this year – the one I have already gushed about; Lyric Kinard‘s “The Elements of Art”, Kerr Grabowski’s Deconstructed Screen Printing, and Laura Cater-Woods “Tempting the Muse”.
There were serious art discussions…
And some, not so serious 😉
We had a fabulous breakfast every morning, a hearty lunch to get us through the day, snack time in the afternoons, and more sweets and goodies than were good for us but we ate them anyway! There was wine, but I pretty much covered that last post. (!?!)
There were evening events and even a musical interlude. Turns out Martha (left), Lyric (center), and Cathy (right) are quite talented!
We even had Yoga every morning and yes, I went – and joined Kathy B, Maggie H, Margot L, and Lyric for a great way to wake up and energize the creativity.
Only 348 days until next year 🙂
