Im back in the land of ?

Well I'm back in the land of the living after having a hectic 2 months .Teaching at the fiber forum in Geelong was amazing I had the time of my life, amazing students, and friendships I made that I will stay with me forever.

Below is where we had all our meals an amazing dining hall a buzz with the sound of women all sharing a love for art, all doing different classes book making, felting, weaving, machine design, making shoes the list goes on.

How can I describe this picture above B1 and B2 we became Polly Jacobs Giacchina an amazing fibre sculpture artist from America, her strange accent and my sense of humour lead to alot of laughs, all I can say is noice cake Polly LOL.

Another wonderful tutor Angie Hughes from the UK her work was amazing her singing of a night time another beautiful memory.
Me singing at her door another site to behold "ANgie,ANgie"

Below are my wonderful Students I had for the week what a great talented bunch they were.

Below are some photo's of there works for the week.

By the end of the week my students were just as mad as me Mission accomplished LOL take a closer look.
Next I will fill you in on Perth and my joint class there with Chris Atkins.

Looks as though you and your students had one heck of a good time, Jen. What fun to teach for an entire week. You have so much talent to share. I am sure you gave your students just a small sampling of your creative spirit and leaving them with wanting more.
