October 2019 Meet Up
Business was simple; two instructors are available for classes for 2019. One is Donna Kato and her class would involve carving to a degree on beads. The second one is Debbie Jackson and it was decided that her offerings were meager since most of us are not beginners and we would desire a more intricate lessons to choose from. Laurie is contacting Debbie to see if there are other options for her classes. A quick vote showed there was a lot of interest in the Donna Kato class however her schedule is limited and that leaves us up in the air for both instructors that are available. More to come when Laurie has it and we’ll probably take a vote via email since we do not meet again until Dec. There is interest in both instructors and we need to narrow down dates and class choice.
Also make note that if your planning your calendars ahead, as many of us do, for the upcoming year, there are two changes in meeting dates. April’s meeting will be on April 18th since there is a retreat scheduled for the usual date we meet up and also September will be on the 19th rather than the usual date. Make note of this as we don’t want anyone not to be aware of the date changes. The rest of the year is scheduled the 4th weekend of each month as before.
Class was given by Julie Eakes on making your pieces look ceramic like with alcohol inks, chalks, various methods to use. Instruction was given on many of these and there are so many options! Thank you Julie for showing us this technique. I’m looking forward to seeing all these new pieces we are creating.
Attendees: Nancy, Brian, Christine, Myra, Bridget, Michelle, Laurie, Cheryl, Kathy, Julie and Pattie.
