October found me quite busy! I started teaching a few classes….of course they were all in the same week! Here are a couple of photos of the student work. Now is the time to think about booking a class for next year! Please use the contact form to email me and you will be notified when new classes are listed! Here is an interesting fact regarding the classes below. The canvas classes were done by polymer guild members. The Bird in a Pumpkin class was done by 7 courageous students who had NEVER TOUCHED POLYMER before. I was totally impressed! Now they all want to come back for more in December. Check out the link in the caption below the Bird in a Pumpkin photo!
I’m doing two Christmas Shows. The first is at Raymond James Financial with my daughter Emily Shrider who is one of the art curators there. The second Holizaar 7
This is a really unique, fun market for your last minute Christmas gifts! I’ts not your mamas bazaar! I’ve been attending this show for years and buying my cool Christmas gifts here and this year I applied and now I am a vendor! Whoo Hoo….it’s always soooo much fun.
I’ve also been designing some new clay items at the Clay Center of St Petersburg and taught a polymer Bird in a Pumpkin Class there in November.
These two cuties participated in the charity event for the Tampa Bay Watch and both found new homes!
Finally, I entered the Helen Breil/Kazuri West Stamp contest and won 3rd place with my little birdie.
And I made a lovely angel for my sister in law. Pictures to come later!
All in all…a great and busy month!
Whew! I need to retire…hahaha….did that in May….I’m working harder now!
