I just got everything returned to normal after the Charles Farrar Demo. I assume that everyone that attended got as much out of the Demo as I did. Charles was kind enough to share many of the techniques that he uses to texture and decorate some of his fine art pieces. I always find the All-day Demos to be inspiring and educational. Seems that I return from them energized and ready to try new and different techniques in my shop. I enjoy combining what I learned with the techniques that I have already been using. Combining different methods makes for a unique look when decorating a piece. After seeing and learning some of the ways that Charles embellishes his pieces. I am looking forward to finishing the decorations on a bowl that I am currently making for a wedding present. The goal as usual is to continue to grow in both our technical abilities and artistic techniques.
A reminder that we will be meeting on the first Sunday in May (the 7th) since Mother's Day is on our regularly scheduled 2nd Sunday. Speaking of Mother's Day, you can get double duty out of a kitchen utensil by making one to enter in the challenge and then give it to someone on Mother's Day.
The AAW is currently offering half off memberships to anyone that has never been a member. This is a great value since you get a regular membership with all the benefits for a very reasonable price of $30. In order to get this special price you must use web address http://tiny.cc/AAWNewGen to sign up.
I hope to see all of you at our next meeting. Until then be safe.
