Dazzling Daze Spring 2009

The December Dazzling Daze was so successful that several asked for a Spring version.  So, here it is.

Kath Danswan, from England, will be one of the teachers, along with Cyndi Mahlstadt and myself.  Kath is known for her use of silk fibers to create whimsical bowls, wings, purses, etc.  At our retreat she'll teach one of her amazing bowls:  KathsSilkBowls2

As you can see, these are truly works of art. 

Besides the silk caps, she uses other fibers, along with angelina.


Cyndi will be teaching her "Darcy" doll.  This is a truly wonderful doll using wire, an Altoid tin, and other fun fibers and "stuff".

You can see this doll in my current book "Creative Cloth Explorations". 

At the retreat you'll learn how to make the doll and make it uniquely yours.

Cyndi, along with Kath, are excellent teachers.  You'll go away knowing a lot more than you knew coming to this event.

Elysia is my doll.  She's fun to make and I'll be teaching how to color the face and body using Shiva paint sticks.   Plus, working with organza to create beautiful wings.

The costs of the retreat start at $885.00, which includes housing for 5 nights, 3 meals a day and 4 days of classes.

Space is limited as we'll be staying at Angels Landing in Julian.  The facility is in the mountains and is more intimate, meaning it is small.  We can sleep only 20 people.  Which means only 20 can come to this retreat.
