Our class of 10 people made probably about 60 books!
We piled them all on the table at the end and did a photo shoot. Here are Diane, Katie, Nicole, and Laura Wait posing for me in between taking pictures of the books.
These are the two books that I made that I am really happy with. I already traded Night Walk on the left for a beautiful collage painting by Beth Kokol.
This is a book that Laura and I made in collaboration with Jim Cooper's metals class for the auction. It has a pewter cover with raised letters spelling Penland 2012.
The last day of the session, everyone in the school shares their work in a gallery setting. It's wonderful to see all of the different work created in just two weeks! I especially loved seeing pieces that friends I talked to each day at meals had made. I took time to visit each studio at least once, but there was so much going on, there was no way to see everything during the session.
In an earlier post, I showed photos of guitars being built in the wood studio. One night, the two instructors, Wayne Henderson and Michael Peyton put on a concert. It was fabulous- what amazing musicians!
Here are a couple of the completed guitars that were made in the class. Can you imagine making one of those in two weeks?!
This is a photo of the updo my hairdresser Barbara gave me for the auction. It was so tall, I had to duck through doorways! It was a very eye-catching look. I highly recommend Barbara for all your fancy hairstyles.
And lastly, here are more pretty Penland pictures.
