I just spent a wonderful week teaching at the Madeline School of the Arts on Madeline Island in WI. Cathy and my friend Joc from Australia travelled with me. We flew into Duluth then drove about 1 1/2 hours to catch the ferry to the island.
On Sunday evening Kate, Jenna and Charles welcomed all with a lovely cheese and wine party.
The school is in an amazing secluded location. A wonderful spot to be creative. This building is were my classroom was. It was large with great light and very comfortable for me and 12 students to spread out for 5 days.
This was the Farm House where I slept.
On Monday everyone spread out all there supplies including wool, cotton and embellishments.
Each evening we headed to the little town for dinner. We were spoilt with amazing sunsets.
On morning a few of us get up really early and headed with coffee in hand to see the sun rise.
The students were from all over the US as well as Joc form Australia and Aida and Florencia from Argentina.
All the students designed a ‘Travel Journal Cloth’ about their life experiences. They were amazingly creative.
Each piece was unique and very tactile. We have a challenge that I will blog about the progress of each of the pieces next April so gals keep stitching. I loved spending time with each on of you and thanks for being such wonderful students.
I will be returning to teach at MISA June 4-8 2012 www.madelineschool.com
