This past summer I was lucky enough to take a couple of workshops with Kathleen Dustin, one of the foremost Internationally known Polymer Clay Artists. I took the Unusual Purses, and Large Hollow Beads. Quite an experience, with 25 fellow artists from all over the U.S. and Canada. Four intense days, I came home impatient to try out what I had learned. Below my two purses I thought it would be easier than it was, but I did survive! Interesting how a room full of creative people feed off each others energy, especially with Kathleen Dustin pushing us on. This year Kathleen is showing her purses at the Smithsonian in Washington, D.C. Next year she is coming to Montreal to give two workshops sponsored by our Guild.
