The Creative Conference is something we started doing last year. The day before the Open House we have some classes at Pompanuck Farm.
This time I taught a workshop on making potholders intuitively, the way I make mine. Without a pattern or even knowing what it will look like until it’s done.
A few of the people who took the class did get their potholders done. But I have a feeling I learned more than they did.
I’ll have to write more about it another time. I’m worn out from getting things ready for the Open House, selling a lot of art online and the class today.
One thing was very clear. I’m different than I used to be. Anytime in the past, if I had taught a class and seen so much that I did wrong I would have either been defensive about it or never want to teach again. This time I was glad to see what I needed to do differently. And I’m eager to try it again and see how well I can do.
