A Special Workshop

PreppingForWorkshop

The four-day moku hanga workshop I was scheduled to teach at Zea Mays Printmaking in Florence MA was canceled because of under-enrollment (we needed 5 participants). I was disappointed, but not too surprised given the economy. Luckily, though, two of the people who had signed up for Zea Mays wanted to work with me privately, so I'm preparing today for a three-day workshop that will be held here in my home studio. I'm excited about this and am preparing the studio today -- clearing out my piles of in-process projects and making space for my two guests. The workshop will be tomorrow (Thursday) through Saturday. I'll post some photos along the way.

Oh! I think you are going to have fun. And what lucky people your two pupils are.

Can you video tape parts? Post them up somewhere?

Diane Cutter said...

Good thinking, Annie... and how very fortunate for those two individuals!

The best part of cancelled workshops is holding them anyway with a few of the people who demand to work with you (from my experience in poetry teaching).

Enjoy, enjoy, and especially expect to learn a lot from your students!!

Cheers, Oscar

Thanks everyone. I missed you all, but took your words to heart, especially what Oscar said about learning from my students. I certainly did! Daniel, I wish I know how to videotape. As you'll see in the next post, I barely managed to take a few still photos!
