Cyndy Sieving is the driving force behind this biennial event. http://www.cyndysdolls.com/redirector.htm
I'm taking a class with Susie McMahon, who is an excellent doll maker from Tasmania. http://www.susiemcmahondolls.blogspot.com/ I chose her class because it is primarily an open studio. These days I'm not interested in making dolls from patterns. Susie will be teaching a sculpting technique using paper clay. That will be fun.
Susie asked us to come to class with a concept of what we want to make. My concept is to make this old tool box into a small wall hung cabinet.
|This metal chest was made by my great, great grandfather George Eckel. He emigrated from Alsace in 1832.|
