Human Marks.......Dorothy Caldwell...........

With so much going on here.......later on that......I've little time to post.......however........prompted by India Flint's announcement of Dorothy's class in Brisbane at our friend Roz's beautiful setting.......I was reminded of two things........My amazing experience attending a workshop titled 'Human Marks' with Dorothy......and it's location........Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in Deer Isle, Maine.

Soooooooooooooo..........as we all do have trouble editing these workshop photos, I'm going to give it a try.......and then divide it by two........the amazing content of Dorothy's class (and it was 2 weeks.....of that)....and the setting (next post)...... the amazingly beautiful Haystack..........

Here goes.........

Don't ask.........really don't........

  6. I (Gina Foglia) am so delighted to find your blog site - That Dorothy workshop still offers me much inspiration. I would love copies of whichever photos you can share as I have none - my files have gone. I am enjoying your posts.

  7. Hi Gina, Gosh....I'm really late in catching up to my comments....I am not linked to them, but will be now. I would love to send you photos of our time there at Haystack. Just need the contact info. If you get this and reply, I should receive it in my email.

  9. This workshop with Dorothy changed my life in a way....I don't think I've ever been so inspired to take my work deeper.....she has a special way of 'seeing' the unique qualities her students possess. In this class she offered individual critiques, which to this day I appreciate. Time with her is precious......seek her out, is my advice.
