Creative Soul Retreat is over and the entire event was WONDERFUL!!!
The tutors, Jan Harris, Laurie Mika & Susan Lenart Kazmer all bought their own magic & expertise to impart to the students.
Susan & Laurie bought along their wonderful sisters, Leslie & Cherie,who were a delight.
Also teaching were Judy Wilkenfeld, Ro Bruhn, Jen Crossley & Kelsey O'Mullane.
I managed to do 3 classes & had a ball!

Judy taught her class 'Just in Case'. We made a bound book using a method I have never tried before & the results were great!
She talked us through her own book & the symbolism of the stories attached to each page.
The class listened intently &, I have to say, I shed a few tears.
I haven't done much work on it yet, as I have yet to decide the subject.

Then I did an evening class on making a stamp,with the delightul Ro Bruhn. I have NEVER tried this before, but, with Ro's gentle manner & easy going nature, it was a breeze! Thanks Ro.
This is a picture of my first ever stamp!
I know it looks messy, but it WORKS!!!

The I did a day long class with the effervescent Laurie Mika.
Believe me, it is hard work conditioning  the clay! This was a class full of fun. Laurie is so patient especially with a clutz like me!
The results were fab, loved every minute of it!

All the feedback from the other classes was so positive.
Bevlea & Eva, you did a great job!
Bringing International tutors to this far away land of Australia is a feat in itself, but the results speak for themselves.
ROLL ON 2011!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
