It's not in the Box

I've been home the last couple of days trying to get some work finished after being in schools for what seemed like forever! And oh yes...teaching Polymer Clay at a couple of locations on Saturdays and Monday nights and...yikes! It's unbelievable how busy one can be.
These boxes are from the class I taught at the Manitoba Craft Museum and Library last week. I did the brownish coppery one as a demo there. Sorry for the very dark scan. No time to set up the camera and do the light box thing.

The work of the participants in the class was very encouraging...lots of ideas floating around and people willing to try different techniques not just what was taught in the course. It's interesting to watch people "grab hold" of something and see their focus shift onto something related; not just what's been taught. That is one of the reasons why I love taking classes too. Even though I am paying to learn a technique I probably have seen or done, I usually revamp what I learn and put my own twist on it. I would have loved to be in Victoria Hughes' class right now in Jordan, MN, but things just didn't work out for that this year. Maybe another time.
