Here a few photos of the last workshops in December and how I closed out the year. My friends Dorothy Yuki, Megumi Inouye and Aiko Cuneo were fellow teachers at some of the holiday workshops.
|These are some of the projects the workshop participants at www.fabmo.org. The coffee filter bows and 2011 calendar gift bags were some of the projects we made.|
|The tables are always overflowing with supplies at the workshops.|
|This was my sample display for the participants at ruthstable.org. We had samples for Hanukkah and Christmas all made from repurposed, found, recycled and unusual materials.|
|These gift tags are made from fabric swatches by one of our creative participants at fabmo.org.|
|The coffee filter bow with a paper bag center were a hit to make at the holiday workshops.|
|I volunteered to teach at the Arc Studio and Gallery where www.scrap-sf.org sponsored an afternoon of free make and takes for all.|
|Artist Aiko Cuneo taught the participants at Arc Studio and Gallery how to make wire sculptures and jewelry.|
|Dorothy Yuki show participants at the San Francisco Quilters Guild how to make ornaments from found paper.|
|The table was filled with all kinds of paper for the tag and ornament workshop we gave.|
Did we bring enough materials? Our friend Kenan Shapero asked up to participate. We had a great time.
|Many of the participants at the workshop enjoyed using the Big Shot die cutter I brought|
from www.sizzix.com. It cuts material, felt, card board and more. I love using it.
|One of the last workshops of this year was at the www.ohanloncenter.org. The title of the workshop was "Not your ordinary wreath". Look at all the beautiful wreaths made from coffee filters, discarded books, old maps and paper towel and toilet paper tubes!|
