Looking Forward to Mixed Minded Workshop Event

It's been a crazy week at work, returning from a five day long Leadership seminar and four day weekend.  It's basically catching up with all the emails that piled up.   But I can't complain, it was a short week and it's the weekend again.   Tomorrow is Play Day for me with the Mixed Minded Workshop event.  Although,  Claudine Helmuth is not coming to the event I'm still excited with the workshops I've chosen.

BOLD AND DARK meets light and delicate
Instructor - Lois Sander
Saturday May 28:  9:30 to 12:30 
In this workshop, you will learn the basics of lettering with an edged pen.  The star of the show will be the Pilot Parallel Pen, a delightful and easy-to-use lettering tool.  You will be introduced to two alphabets that you will apply to a charming little book that you will construct yourself. This treasure will then be finished off with a simple hand stitch, and some beads and fibers along the spine.

Encaustic 101
Instructor - Nancy Donaldson

Saturday May 28: 1:30 to 4:30pm
Modernized over the years, encaustic is an ancient Egyptian art form of painting with hot wax.  In this class we will learn the basics of working with this medium and incorporating it into a mixed media piece of art.

Looking forward to an all day fun and creativity.  In the meantime, Aidan and Wallace gets to see their first TFC game with Hughie (Aidan's friend) and dad.
