Gourd dolls, that is.......
I've joined a wonderful group of artists that meets once per month. We are calling our group East Side Art. Each month we take turns
hosting the group and facilitating a "class". Last month Jacki share her talent for torn paper collage. Unfortunately I didn't take pics, but we all had a great time.
This month Norma taught the class. She really went the extra mile. We had all agreed that we would take our lunches to our get-togethers, but Norma made a huge pot of tortilla soup with all the trimmings. In the morning we had tea/coffee with some sweet rolls. She had set up two huge double-wide tables under awnings. There was more than enough space for each of us to spread out all our supplies. We each were given a gourd doll blank and a plastic bag of accessories and miscellaneous supplies. Here Norma is showing us choices of fabrics we could use. Just look at those gorgeous dolls which are just a smidgen of her glorious collection.Here's Erin's finished doll in her inimitable style of florals.
Here are Linda and Libby about half finished with theirs.
And here are four of our lovelies at the end of the class.
A grand time was had by all!!
