    Beading Workshop by Kymba

    Ready to Start (private lesson)

    Favorite thing: We were all very fortunate to have a beading workshop by Kymba. Some people (well, me) did not even try to understand the freeform-quadruple-bypass-underhand-odd-count-peyote stitch. Kymba said they were Czech beads but actually they were magic beads. If you waited overnight, they would stitch themselves into a gift for each person. Pretty magical, huh? Of course, an alternative was to accept skilled tutoring from Kymba and do it yourself. She even gave Kat a private lesson, since Kat could not be there for the scheduled workshop.

    Favorite thing: Beee is amazing when it comes to knitting. I should have taken more pictures of her work. She can use bamboo yarn and even knits lace! She was taught the two basic stitches but then learned all the rest herself. She has a patient, easy-going teaching style that is very effective. I know her students enjoyed the workshop. Kymba started a wash rag but switched to a belt; LOL, make that a short belt.

    Writing Workshop by Misha

    Listening Intently

    Favorite thing: I listened in awe as Misha led her students in this workshop. Who knew when she started them just thinking about a favorite food how their stories would evolve. Emotions ran high as students remembered their past. Misha is passionate about teaching writing and worked them hard. They started inside and ended up outside. There were many rewrites. Maybe they will share their stories with you. I can only say that Kymba could make a lot of money if she sold her story to Mrs. Smith's Pies.

    Favorite thing: Since I cannot even draw a stick figure, I went to Taos instead. However, they were just finishing when we got back. I'll let the talented artists relate how it went and I'll just show a couple of pics taken afterwards. Postcards were also done. The watercolor paintings were dried in the Questa sun and held down from blowing away with apples fresh picked from a Takoja tree.
