The class was taught by a wonderful artist, Anastasia Azure, a weaver who works with unusual materials - fish line being one of them. Her work is fabulous and blows me away. You have to check out her website at www.anastaciaazure.com.
The class was held at The Mad Dog Artists Studios in Pawtucket, RI. How's that name to get you in the mood for a creative experience! As you might guess it is an old factory building which has been renovated into studio space where many artists come together to work. As one who works alone in my studio I am always a little envious of the inspiration one gets when being in the company on a regular basis of other artists. So I live vicariously through one time experiences such as I had on Saturday. And it was great.
Here are a few pictures of what I learned to do.............................
