Painted Fiber Art with Elizabeth Busch

Excellent class with a superb instructor! Really accomplished a great deal.” – Chris L.

Our last class of the 2016 season was with the wonderful Elizabeth Busch from Maine. She taught The Painted Quilt: Creating Small Works. The first couple of days was spent painting on canvas. Then the remainder of the class was spent on composition. Enjoy the photo tour! IMG 2407

IMG 2410 Because the first day of the workshop was Halloween, the breakfast special of the day was pumpkin pancakes! Of course, the full breakfast menu was still available with a wide range of choices. IMG 2406

IMG 2423 It was quite the marvelous week and there was even plenty of Fall colors around the grounds to be enjoyed. IMG 2424 It was a satisfying and inspiring year of workshops. We thank everyone who made it possible – students, teachers, and staff. We look forward to another exciting year in 2017. The classes are already filling up and we haven’t even sent out the brochures yet. Keep warm and we’ll see you next year!

Composing Compositions with Cynthia Corbin

Class was life enriching. I am thrilled to have spent time with Cynthia before she retired. This is the best environment in which to create!” – Cheryl K. “Cynthia has the ability to bring out our most creative self. This is a lovely inn. You make sure we are comfortable and well-fed, including afternoon cookies. The workroom/studio is excellent, wonderful light and super chairs.” – Sharon C.

It was a great week with Cynthia Corbin as she taught a 5-day workshop to a full house of students. We even “ordered up” a little snow to the delight of our 3 Californians! The students all said they had an amazingly productive week and I only wish I had had the opportunity to stop in the studio to take more pictures. IMG 2375
Except for the one day of light snow, we had some gorgeous Fall weather and there was still plenty of colorful leaves to enjoy. IMG 2377
