"Fiber Therapy"....well, I don't think I need to explain!
If you've been reading in recent months you know I've started a pottery class. Something I've always wanted to do...just another "artistic" outlet for me! It's a very free form sort of class, various levels of experience and as one of my classmates said...they're sort of a "club" instead of a teaching environment. MY kinda class...very unstructured...do what you want to do. However, our instructor comes to us each week with a "challenge" or idea to inspire us, otherwise you do what the heck you want to do!
So, I'm sure you are asking by know...."What in the world has she been making?"
Stop laughing...I know it all looks like I'd been drinking when I made it...I swear I was totally sober! The little pitcher to the left is the very first project I made on the wheel, then we were challenged to "throw" a plate~~mine? The ugly purple one, you can't see how utterly disfigured that plate really is...it's better described as a "dish"! Then we were to be "inspired" by nature...so I did a "pressed" piece with the dogwood leaves (shhh~that's my Mom's Christmas present) and then the little blue thing...that's going to be a pen holder for Hubby's desk!
"Clay Therapy"...this is where you can take out your frustrations of the day....week....month...year?!?!
Work got you on edge? Family members driving you crazy? Ex-girlfriends (remember I stared this class just when oldest son dumped TGFH) giving you and your family grief? 100 degree temperatures making you cranky? TAKE A POTTERY CLASS!!!
I have to say this has been so much fun! Will I continue? I'm not sure if I'll go through the winter months but maybe in the Spring?!?!
Back to my fiber therapy now...
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
