Wendy Froud Workshop
I attended a Wendy Froud Worshop in New York, at the Purple Petals Studio, this past weekend...WOW!!! It was a 3 day workshop on creating a "creature"...I wanted to take a class with Wendy...but i was a little "afraid" of the "creature" thing! I thought about just doing a pixie or fairy...and I was told Wendy would accomodate that...but then I thought about it. Get into a new mindset,,,TRY it!!OPEN a NEW DOOR....So I did and I was amazed at all of the fantastic techniques that I learned from Wendy and Toby! They are both amazing and giving artists!
I'm very excited to try again and be a little more "BRAVE"! haha I worked off of a picture of my child, ugh!! I mean my "cat" moon.. I still have to dress him..The almost completed doll is just "DRAPED" with some fabrics..to try and get an idea for an outfit.
I met so many new friends that are very talented artists..Sherry put the class together and took care of everything, she was great...and I dont think everything would have flowed without her.
