The guild treated me to an outstanding buffet dinner at a Mennonite restaurant nearby! It felt like Thanksgiving, even though it was only the 19th of November.
The next day, twenty some ladies and I explored the process of making portraits in cloth. We took it one step at a time, and built confidence along the way. Each student had purchased a few thrift store clothing items to share. We accomplished quite a lot, even before breaking for lunch! Here are a few photos of our morning progress:
After lunch, we tackled noses, mouths, and held an uplifting critique session. These ladies are a talented group of artists, and a pleasure to work with. I wish I would have gotten some photos of the portraits before everyone left for the day. Here are a few more shots from the early afternoon:
