Hacienda Mosaico Workshop

I am thrilled to announce that my most excellent and super talented ceramic sculptor friend Caroline Douglas and myself will be teaching a one week workshop at the transcendentally beautiful Hacienda Mosaico in Puerta Vallarta, Mexico at the end of March/beginning of April.  

The workshop is called, "The magnificent Mini Me: Celebrating Your Inner Light" and during this fun filled and learning rich week we will be constructing miniature facsimiles of ourselves starting with sculpting clay heads, clay animals and clay beads. We will embellish the "body" of our mini me with bead mosaics and attach wooden spindles for arms and replicas of santos hands. We will be stringing strands of our own hand made clay beads and a variety of other beads to create a skirt for our pieces. We will incorporate text that has some personal resonance for us: a short poem, an affirmation, a favorite quote, a prayer  or a remembrance. And these beautiful little ladies will also feature a light whose glow will remind us to keep our own inner lights shinning. 

Take a look at the entire web site of Hacienda Mosaico to see how gorgeous this paradise is! I hope you can join Caroline and me for this grand adventure.
