A good time was had by all

This Saturday was “Second Saturday” at the Workhouse Arts Center in Lorton, VA.  I decided to be more of a facilitator this time around and provide a free make and take workshop for anyone.  It was great! I had about 50 participants come in and hang out, while creating really beautiful pieces of art, all in a single postcard.  I provided all the supplies, they provided the inspiration.  And just in case, I had stamps and addresses for those who wanted to get a little political.

It was a great community gathering that I hope to do again for next month. I’m just thinking and considering– what could be the theme?  The subject?  The material?  Stay tuned and find out soon.  March is just around the corner.

Here are a few pictures from last night’s make and take:

Lots of stamping and collage making going on in this corner.  Not to mention the conversations and general laughter.

Participants came and went, but it was a nice ebb and flow.
