A good time was had by all who attended guest artist Doreen Kassel’s workshop on Saturday, March 17. With conditioned white Premo,oil paints and glass Christmas tree ornaments in hand we sat in expectation to create some fun, whimsical creatures with Doreen’s instruction and we did! Doreen demonstrated how to take a plain glass ball and turn it into something wonderful. Timing couldn’t have been better for those of us who profited from Leslie Blackford’s demos at Clayathon. The lessons we learned with Leslie were a great foundation for the additional skills taught to us by Doreen. By the end of the day there was plenty of pork to be had along with an assortment of other beasts. As the Guild’s guest artist at our meeting on Sunday, March 18 Doreen continued to work with members on their figurines and also with others who wanted to move on to making story tiles.
