In-Person Workshops

Workshop Schedule 


Experiences. As we venture forward together as a creative community, after 2+ years of closures and cancellations, I have decided to create experiences rather than classes. Whether it is a one-day workshop at a craft store or a nine-day international cultural adventure -- my events going forward will be filled with so much more than just technique and projects. My aim will be to create community, connection, and memories! Please check back to this page to see the adventures that will be added as more time passes and safer travel returns. 







Spain - 3 spots left



Spain. Join me for a nine-day cultural and creative adventure of a lifetime in Spain. Along with Jim West, the owner of Craftours - the sponsoring company - you will experience Spain through the lens of creative eyes. Our focus will be Madrid, Toledo and Barcelona. Together, our multi-day workshop will guide you in creating a Field Guide to Spain which will become a part of your daily activities.  Jim will also be teaching two mini-workshops on both painting and photography. But the star of the show will be Spain herself and our activities will include multiple tours with professional local guides, an exclusive tour of a century-old Spanish sword-making factory, an optional Spanish cooking class, tour of a local family-owned winery including wine tasting, a visit to the Spanish craft village of Poble Espanhol, a visit to a family owned Spanish fan/umbrella making facility, a demonstration on the Flamenco-inspired haute couture dresses, a visit to the iconic Sagrada Família, Gaudi’s famous church in Barcelona, plus many meals, special gifts, and much more. Nine days of creative community and cultural bliss. Registration is open and details are available here

Imagine, each day awakening to a gourmet breakfast with creative souls, art lovers, and fellow kindred spirits, then immersing yourself into creating, playing, exploring and art-making to your heart's content. Our projects begin with a simple case of your own choosing. This case can have  many compartments, or niches, of all different sizes or can be one open space. Throughout the retreat, we will fill it with unique art pieces such as handmade books, paintings, collages, assemblages, scrolls, shrines, and tapestries. We will paint and collage, stitch, and weave, connect and construct, assemble and build, write and sketch, all the while creating our own, unique Case of Curiosities.
