This past Friday and Saturday I taught another class at Cape Fear Studios in Fayetteville NC, a town a little more than an hour's drive away from home. I had done a solo show there a couple of years ago and they invited me back to teach a silk painting beginner's class.
I had 4 students this time, one of whom drove 4 hours from Virginia just to so she could work with me! I was quite honored at this - I've only had local students up till now! It was an intensive 2 days; they tried lots of different things and of course were fascinated by the whole process of silk painting!
Janet Platz, my student from VA and a papermaker, gave me my first ever 'teacher gift' , a bound journal covered with, and wrapped in, her beautiful hand-marbled paper (last pic). I was thrilled!
