I have two workshops on creating a figure in papier mâché coming up soon, one at Place des Arts in Coquitlam, BC (Dec. 1 and 2, 2012) and one at Coast Collective near Victoria, BC (Nov. 16, 2012) on Vancouver Island. On the weekend I had a chance to create a new angel and, no surprise to me, she turned out very earthy and bearing dragonfly wings. Years ago I was working on an earth angel series and it feels as if the theme has returned. I always enjoy when I cycle back into a place I’ve been before but with more depth and insight to make the process richer each time round. Here is the description for the workshop and for more information on the workshops them selves click on Place des Arts or Coast Collective on my blog roll for more information and to register for a class.
