Many of you may know that I was recently at Squam Art Workshops for their Spring Art Fair and that I fell in LOVE with everything about the place. It was a magical evening among the trees, on a beautiful lake, with the kindest and most creative people. Sounds pretty much like heaven, right? If you follow Squam (and you should!) you've seen a gorgeous, ethereal, woven heart filled with twinkling white lights in many of their photos. Well, that heart was made by the extraordinary Harriet Goodall. Harriet is a sculptural basket maker and she led a workshop at Squam last year called, Gift of the Heart, where she shared her process and taught how to make the exquisite heart shape sculpture. Here's the most exciting part – Squam is offering Harriet's workshop online this summer through August 31st ! That means that from anywhere in the world, at any time of day or night, you can experience the magic of Squam.
All the info you need to join the class is detailed in this link:
HUGE thanks to Elizabeth, Squam's magnificent leader, for being a torchbearer in the handmade community – nurturing endless opportunities of connection, learning, and creative goodness.
Happy Summer and Joyful Weaving! I'll 'see' you in class . . .
