Learning to be a teacher

Today I did an intense day of learning how to be a teacher. Two of my friends allowed me to try my teaching skills on them before I teach a real live class. Thanx Mar and Lori. We completed the wrapping and dressing and our creations will be available to view next week when we are totally satisfied with the work. (Stay tuned)

Paverpol Instructor Training

I took my Instrutor course in Athabasca, Alberta at NTW Studio on September 30 and October 1, 2017 I had the honor of being the only person in my class, so I had Nancy all to myself.  She is a gifted artist and inspiring teacher.  The workshop is very intense but thouroughly presented.

During the course I learned everything there is to know about Paverpol.  I worked with all of the Paverpol products and I am looking forward to sharing the unlimited potential with all of my students.

Below is my creations and my certificate.  The creations are yet to be named.  I was excited to do my first fairy as anyone who knows me, knows how intrigued I am with Fairyland.

3 Constant Companions

My line of girls hanging on the bottles are to be named Constant Companions.

This weekend I am attending my instructors course. When I pass my course I plan on pursuing this form of art.

I plan on teaching courses and selling my little ladies. You can commission a girl or pick from the creations that I dream up.

These girls are the Constant Companions of each other at the moment.

Tipsy Lady on the far right is visiting from Bev and is not for sale. She is my muse and first acquired piece of fabric sculpting.

Wine Warrioress Brie

IMG_1012 (2)This is my second creation. My inspiration was  a piece of work created by my first instructor Bev Oliwa, owner of Creative Fire Studio.  A picture of Tipsy Lady is in the sidebar.   As I began to create my little wine goddess, I felt she had the spirit of a warrioress and she reminded me of Brienne of Tarth from “Game of Thrones”.

Thus began my modeling her into a warrioress of wine.

She was created at our cabin on August 15, 2017.

These creations develop their own personalities and identities as you go through the process of the sculpting.
