New classes, and in new locations: hope to see you soon! If you see something you wish I were offering in your neck of the woods, don't hesitate to give me a shout . We can make it happen.
at GATHERING OF STITCHES in PORTLAND MAINE June 28-29th
This is going to be fun, and a little different. I'll be joining sewist, maker and owner Samantha Hoyt Lindgren at her fabulous maker space for textile and fiber artists in the East Bayside neighborhood. It's a full weekend of photography classes, perfect for anyone who loves photography, making, knitting, designing, or all of the above.You can take one, two, or all three of the workshops we put together.
Saturday will be a full day Photography for Knitters & Makers workshop. We'll talk, shoot, edit & end the day with time to review & critique images. An excellent one if you want to get out and shoot for the day, and take your photos to a new level. It's also a great class for designers/crafters who want to create specific images to market their work.
Portland Maine is worth a weekend getaway. Samantha's offering a nice discount if you want to make it a weekend of classes, and she can reconmmend places to eat, stay and visit, too.
registration open now and filling fast! Gees Bend Quilters will be there.
I'm returning to one of my favorite haunts, Searsport Maine. I hate how the word unique is overused and misused in the creative world--but truly, Fiber College is a unique gathering. It'll be my 4th year, and it makes the bittersweet end to summer tilt toward sweet, each time.
- all day Friday Savvy Storytelling writing +photography workshop with Beverly Army Williams, for anyone who wants to enliven their blog or website in and empowering way
- Saturday, a Photo Scavenger Hunt workshop. This is going to be so.much.fun. You'll learn tips and techniques to improve your photogrpahy while being challenged to seek images--this year the Gees Bend Quilters will be teaching, along with an amazing array of others and vendors, so we will have so much to shoot in this lovely and unique waterfront setting.
Don't wait too long, I have a feeling this year is going to sell out.
And, if you prefer to learn at your own pace, or maybe a workshop isn't in your immediate future:
my webinar from Interweave : Photography for Knitters
It's a download that you can watch as many times as you wish, recorded from alive broadcast. Have you tried any webinars? They're a great idea with a terrible Elmer-Fuddish name. The images and talk are very much what you might see and hear from me in the first hour of a workshop, but of course, the hands-on part is all on your own, any way you want to do it.
