Carol Simmons Class Starts Tomorrow!

All Packed and ready to go! As I used to say to my son one more wake up till Carol Simmons!

This is what approx 6.5  pounds of clay looks like sheeted out. I threw them in plastic protectors and am carrying it on with the 500 pound cardstock (it’s not that heavy but you get my drift). My carry on weighs 38 pounds because of the clay and thick cardstock. I sheeted more than I should have but I wanted to make sure I was ready for anything that came my way.

This is a wonderful opportunity and I hope to learn about Kaleidoscope caning from a master in the field. I have played around with the idea many times but never looked at it in the way she will teach me to look at it from now on.

This was one of the first I tried.

Then I tried one that I just love. It was from a shirt that I owned and I made the same pattern from the design.

I tried one with Kato clay and decided to make the change.

This is the image I have chosen to base my cane off of.

Then I saw this image and drooled all over the keyboard. I thought at first that I should not choose this one because I clearly was looking at the cane and not necessarily the colors me being the caner I am. Then I was not sure there were enough colors for a cane. But a funny thing happened while planning for the class Carol actually suggested this image and sent color swatch thingies with it. When I looked at the colors that way it seemed to me they were almost the same funny hunh?

    Hi, could you possibly email me a copy of the class supplies needed (when you get a chance). I am taking the class in April and would like to start collecting “stuff” now so I don’t have to do it all at the last minute. Carol said she’d send me a list, but has been so busy I suspect she has forgotten and I don’t want to bug her. I love the photo and colors you chose. Can’t wait to see what this class produces. My email is or Thanks ever so much.

      I am so glad that you are taking her class next year. I think that you will really enjoy it. Since you do have a lot of time until your show I believe that you will have plenty of time to get the supply list from Carol. If you follow her than you must know that she is teaching 6 day intensive workshops almost back to back. When I say intensive I mean they were really a lot of work. I am sure when she is able to wind down from the class she will send you the list. Again I really am happy for you being able to have the wonderful oppertunity of learning next year from a master in the field. Enjoy!
