Somewhere in between past online workshops and the Diary series, I compiled a lot of my basic approaches into a sampler class. Just a bit of everything. I ran one interactive workshop in this style and then made it into a work on your own class, including it as a bonus in the last What if Diary teaching series.
I run all my classes by just going. This one was no different.
My intention is to open this one. Now. I am actually going to update a few things, including the resource page and add some new lessons. But really, it is a good start for any newcomers. A kind of teaching base to add to. I think it will help make all that I do openly here, help make more sense of the new stuff that might evolve. Help to get us all on the same page, so to speak.
The class, to date has been hosted on a password protected blog. I have removed the security. I hate that password thing, enough. Feel Free to visit there. You might pay what works for you or not if that is the way it is. Certainly that is the way it is for all of us now and then. Maybe later...? At least tell me how inspiring I am. Oh ha! I haven't been able to let that go yet.
Spirit Cloth 101 (FF#1)
(just click the image to access. also listed on the student links page.)
A beginners work on your own course based on a previous workshop. Designed specifically for those who have never taken any classes or workshops from me before, because some content is repeated from other classes. Featuring a lot of the basic hand stitching and cloth construction techniques I call the Spirit Cloth style. A little bit of everything, an overview of my philosophy and style complied from other workshops. Includes simple design ideas and project examples to get you started. Suitable for an art or craft approach. Simple. Easy to follow, using the sampler approach as a learning tool. Slow and easy. No special experience necessary. Focused on hand stitching. Simple supplies.
Audio, Video, PDF.
I am in the process of converting the audio to another format. If you not see the audio player in the posts, email me.
Maybe I might talk about these issues as well, configuring online classes and what it involves.
All the free stuff will be posted and organized in some reasonable way on the Feel Free site as soon as I get my act together.
And thank you, thank you for all your support.
