I love parties. I love planning parties. I love seeing good friends, meeting new people, and making new friends. And I especially love it when I have a party and everyone mixes well, enjoys the food, and has a great time together. Well, the JouJou Workshop with Deryn Mentock was one of those successful events. It was small enough that everyone had a chance to get to know each other.
Deryn is a gifted and generous artist. Her work is creative and her style is individual. She is warm and genuine and I really enjoyed being in her class. She will be teaching this class again at ArtNest in 2009. If you are able to go, do! You will be so glad you did.
The attendees were amazingly talented. Everyone arrived with a different level of expertise. Everyone left with a beautiful, wearable work of art. The personal touches everyone put into their work made each piece unique. The pictures below do not do justice to the wonderful creations. If you’re interested in seeing better pics, I know Deryn will be posting. Also check out these blogs: Vintage Sweets, Perpetual Plum, and Art Tart Talks.
Thanks to everyone for the best workshop ever!
