Workshop at Daniel Stowe Botanical Gardens Saturday 11/6

Inspiration: Crepe Myrtle Seed Pods

Wish me luck. I am teaching my first workshop on my techniques and processes at DSBG in Belmont NC. I love teaching, especially adults who are interested in the subject matter. Did lots of it in my former employment as an HR consultant for Duke Energy. Have done some in the quilting realm, so it is not totally unfamiliar. This time, I am teaching processes I use and am very familiar with, but do not have a good feel for how quickly others will grasp the materials. The challenge is always how to keep it simple enough for beginners to grasp and sophisticated enough to keep the old hands interested.
It is both a process and a product class. So everyone should be able to go away with a small piece of nature inspired art of their own creation based on the techniques taught.
I have begun developing the actual course curriculum and materials. I will have a pretty complete kit of materials and extra materials for participants to experiment with. The workshop is limited to 15 people maximum to provide good space and time for each person to ask questions.

Please, if you are interested in the workshop, contact DSBG or register on line.



  1. Nancy,
    I am signed up for your class and looking forward to it. I am looking forward to leaning your technique so I might possibly use it on some of my projects.

  2. How lucky it would be to live near enough to take your workshop at the Botanical Gardens. Good luck on a successful experience for you and your students. I'm a big admirer of your art!
