Last week we filled our room at the antique mall with 1920s linen bus numbers. They sold the next day. Back we went and put up the remainder and that same day all the single numbers sold...all 17 of them! So again we spent our week cutting and framing bits of those rolling signs that tell one where the transport is going. Our wall at Brothers Antique Mall (Medina OH) is now loaded with 1940s London bus signs. I forgot to take my camera so you will just have to be satisfied with seeing the one that came home because it wouldn't fit on the wall.
I am so enamoured with these signs and we have quite a few to sell at our antique mall shop. Too big to ship. Sorry.
John and I really enjoyed the Small Studio Workshop Series that we did in 2010. We had to cancel it for this year due to some pesky medical stuff, but we are planning our Series again for 2012 and we have lined up Keith Lobue and Michael deMeng already! All info will be available on this blog when dates have been confirmed. I am awaiting word from other instructors.
Last, but certainly not least, I am abandoning John for a whole week while I go make books at Pam Sussman's. She hosts and teaches 6 students in her home studio for a one week intensive workshop.
Here is what I made last time:
I can't wait. Working with Pam is always fun, well organised and so instructive. I haven't made anything artsy in quite awhile so I am excited to begin.
While I am gone my etsy shops will be closed and will reopen Aug 27th or 28th.
