This day started really sad with the news about the terrorist attack in Stockholm. At the same time I am very happy that i am safe and that my whole family back in Sweden also are safe.
This day is also a little sad because it is the last day of our fabulous cruise. For a whole week we have been around thirty creative people who have learned sooooo much from our fantastic teachers Christi, Mami and Debbi . We have also learned so very much from each other’s efforts, successful projects and things that did not quite turn out as we had planned. But the fact is that if your goal is to learn something you can never fail.
These days April 1 to 8 2017 have been so full of inspirational polymer clay work and development for all of us.
The usual day schedule was a class for one of the three teachers in the morning. After lunch we had an open workroom where everyone worked individually in finishing the projects they had started in the morning. After dinner we gathered again in the workroom for general information and for mini classes where you could choose from mini-classes where the teachers showed different types of polymer clay techniques like crackling, sealing, monstering, caning and lots of other fun things to do with polymer clay. Of course there were great opportunities to create freely under the leadership of our wonderful teachers.
Some days we also made artistic excursions – for example whalewatching, turtle-watching and meeting with hawaiian artists.
So a big and heartfelt MAHALO to Christi, Mami, Debbie, Lisa and Joan for arranging such an amazing adventure for all of us! It has certainly been an exciting journey, both in space and time and in terms of artistic development.
Also a great thank you to all my amazing fellow students from different parts of the world because I got to know you and that you so lovingly shared your experience and knowledge. I have made many new friends during this trip, and I hope we will meet again soon – both in social media and in real life.
When I get back on WiFi again, I will lead a lot of images from this trip into photo albums on my Mosebacke Horse Sculptures Facebook page.
If you want to find pictures of what we/I did when we were not on the ship you will find my private albums on my Facebook page EvaMarie Törnström.
