Still Time To Register!!!

I am going to be teaching a workshop entitled "Re-sin-blage: a charming exercise in jewelry adornments" on Saturday and Sunday, May 1-2, 2010, at Valley Ridge Art Studio in Muscoda, Wisconsin.
Come and experience the magic of creating resin objects. We'll make molds, fill bezel cups, and will explore the myriad of ways in which resin can be used. We will transform objects into elements which can be incorporated into unique jewelry pieces and embellishments to enhance your assemblage and journaling work. We will then take these elements to the next level, to assemble your own signature, one-of-a-kind, "charming" bracelet or neckpiece!
There is still time to register! For those of you who have never been to Valley Ridge, it is absolutely wonderful!!! I took my first workshop there back in 2005, and I was hooked! It is nestled in a very rural and very beautiful location in the southwestern corner of Wisconsin. The owners, Bill and Kathy Malkasian, have transformed the property into a top-notch retreat center of sorts, with a well-equipped studio, community room, and even on-site accommodations for lodging in the farmhouse as well as camp sites with electrical hookups! They make you feel right at home there, and go out of their way to make sure everyone has a pleasurable and relaxing time during their visit. I can say from experience that every time I go there, I find myself getting creatively inspired. When I leave there after a workshop, I can't wait to get back in my own studio and start working on projects. I have also met and formed friendships with many people during my stays there, too! It's wonderful to be with other people who love to create!
If you are interested in registrating for my workshop, or any of the other workshops offered at Valley Ridge for the 2010 season, please click here.
I look forward to seeing you there.

Hi Jill,
I enjoyed our art studio time together today! I was inspired by all of your samples that you have been working on for your class! Especially the faux amber that you made. It will never look at dead bug parts the same ;)
