SCRAP Zip it up workshop

PhotobucketLast Saturday I assisted Dorothy Yuki at SCRAP on a zipper workshop. (One of my favorite places ever!- SCRAP) Here are the results of the students work. It was so much fun and everyone made a lot of wonderful brooches. We had been making them for months and giving them away as gifts.

More workshops to come!

In Japan Seeking Inspiration

I am in Kochi, Japan, with my family.  I am keeping my eyes, ears and mind open for inspiration to bring back home with me.  I hope to have a lot to share.


Dorothy Yuki's Bethany Center centerpiece

This is a centerpiece made by Dorothy Yuki of discarded maps and atlases with dried plants and corrugated paper.


Bethany House Foreign Cinema Fund raiser Centerpieces

My piece is a repurposed dictionary and novel cut and folded and folded...and air plants that lie around it.
Bethany Center which houses Ruth's Table will hopefully raise $ for it.
I made them and will not see them again...going home with someone who hopefully bids on them.
Thought you arty friends would want to see these.  It was fun to have an excuse to play and create.
