Teaching @ Jenny Doh's

 

I'm a huge fan of this incredible woman who in as remarkable in person as she is online.  I feel so honoured to have had this opportunity  to teach in her beautiful creative space and to meet her in person too.  Not to mention, the crowd she attracts.  It was quite something.  I was particularly excited about teaching this class because we mostly all knew each other,  online and/or in person and the excitement was contagious.  I wasn't nervous but more excited. I was quite emotional, in the best way.

Jenny's Studio is full of beautiful art and Kitty was loving all the powerful messages that totally speaks her language.  I was utterly in awe of it all.  What a place to experience.  You gals are so lucky that you get to come here for classes as often as you do.  I'm so thrilled you have this.

Lindsay said it looked like she was having a coffee date with Taylor Swift :-)

Day 1 - Kitty and Lindsay went out for the day.  Lindsay is Kathy's daughter and they kindly offered to entertain Kitty for the day.  She took her out thrifting and for her first coffee and great heart to heart chats.  I was so grateful - thank you Lindsay and Kathy.

Two beautiful women, who are old friends and who are so dear to me and I got to hang with both of them. Lucky me.

Old friends and new getting together, some of us for the first time and some of us, again.  It felt like a reunion of sorts and it was magical.  I got to meet my online friends that have been so dear to me and who I go way way back with.  I can't even tell you how much that meant to me.  Again, thank you to those who flew in, or drove so far to take this class and I'm thrilled we got to create together.

I am carrying you all in my heart.  Thank you for choosing to spend these two days with me.

Jen's beautiful work

The level of work was off the charts.

I soooo loved teaching this class and I loved how open everyone was to trying new things.  I think I am in love with teaching paperclay.  My favourite part was the one on one work with each person on both days.  I loved seeing how inventive and intuitive everyone was.  It was such a beautiful group of woman and the class dynamic was incredible.  Thank you for making it such a joy for me and thank you for teaching me too.  The level of work was so inspirational. 

We had our lunches together and some of us had dinner together, those of us who stayed in town for the night.  I adored the personal connections so much and all the spoils.  Thank you.

At the end of day 2, we had circle time of sharing and vulnerability - what a precious way to end an incredible two days.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts, this was an incredible time for Kitty and myself, one we will never forget.
