Heaven! What a whirlwind. I am firmly entrenched in “catch-up-week” followed immediately with show-prep” fortnight. LOL. But I wanted to share the fun and success that was my mixed media “Word Mojo” class at Bead Fest Spring.
Set up the night before. Not only is 8:30 an early start time, I need to know its all ready so I can relax and get some sleep.
I wanted the spots for students to be organized, and welcoming. I know I’d be thrilled to walk in to a spot already made ready for me…
This is what we did – my samples. The original “Word Mojo” focals debuted on AJE in January 2014. From then til now, I have been refining the process and was thrilled it was accepted as a class. We were making molds and altering them at times, from antique (copyright free!) found objects.
Molds, polymer, paint, Oh MY! One student kept giggling spontaneously. She was having a blast!
Some of the student work! (Sorry the picture is so off color. Wish I had taken more… )
There were shallow pieces with glaze and deeper pieces with resin:
All in all – they were pleased and inspired. I’d call that a success!
