I’m Back

Live as if you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever.”

~Mahatma Gandhi


Well, here it is, the first couple days back at school. Another two days where I get to dive in and see what I can absorb. I'm taking two classes since that's what I can fit in with being a mama with little people at home still but for now that's enough.

Yesterday was my first class of Fibre Arts (2D) and we did the usual chatter with tours of the department, etc. but after that we got to dive in with some felting, which was completely new to me, and did two small samples.

The first was simply four colours. Black and white on the one side (1/2 and 1/2) and the other side could be any two colours we chose. It was interesting to see how the black and white come peeking through and totally change the intensity and tones of the colours. I did some blending on my black and white side too, just to try it out.

Next was using what's called a resist and though I like how my little pot thing turned out I wished I had used different colours. There's always next time right?

Our teacher for this class is around my mother's age and she just graduated with her undergrad in fine arts in 2007 (she did her masters as well) after deciding to go back to school. Hearing that was beyond perfection since I often wonder what I'm doing in there with a bunch of kids stright out of high school. Maybe I'm actually ahead of the game!



  1. So many new things on the first class! Cool.
