Welcome to the informational page for
Rounding the bend to year two at Hay Loft Studio, the wood stove is in and deliciously toasty. We have new a spacious stairway leading up to the studio. 2013 will be a year of expansion. I will open my classes to a wider age range, (6-adult), while still maintaining small classes. Many parents on picking up their children, looked on with envy and more than once I heard: “How come the kids get all the fun classes?” For the adults, I will be offering felting, chair caning, create your own concrete garden sculpture, wreath making, handmade greeting cards, and more. Interested? I could use some input on what times are most convenient to hold these classes. E-mail me, email@example.com.
I will be investigating the idea of an open studio night for students who want some free time and facilities to work on their own projects and once a month I would like to host Whately Creates, a weekend morning or evening of creative neighbors gathering for coffee, tea and homemade sticky buns. A chance to chat and eat while we work on our own projects.
What am I working on?
My own work has been an exploration of what makes us human. I constantly seek answers to why? Why am I here? Why did that happen to her? Why is he ill? Why are we sometimes sad? Angry? Happy? What is inside that body that makes us go? There are many more. I have explored these questions through, journals, drawings, paintings, wood carving, plaster and bronze casting, concrete and most recently wool. I have experience working with many materials and many techniques. Currently, my focus has been on needle felted wool sculptures of human anatomy.
