Minicamp Description: Join artist/designer Susie J. Gray for a fun time creating fiber crafts projects out of willow and wool. We will use the traditional crafts skills of basket weaving, wool felting, weaving, and net making as we create various functional and decorative items to take home. Sample projects could include: willow soap dish; small sculptural insect lanterns; butterfly or fishing net; hackey sack or small satchel; willow whistles, buttons and beads; felted flowers and mushrooms; willow animal ornaments, felted juggling balls, personalized pendants and more!

Susie J. Gray-BIO: Susie J. Gray could never decide what she wanted to be when she grew up. Consequently, (although she isn’t at all sure she is grown up) she wears multiple hats. Thank heavens she adores hats! Designer. Artist. Craftsperson. Educator. She loves life and all of creation.

When she is not substitute teaching in area schools or working at an after school program, you might find her, designing edible landscapes, doing graphic design and illustration, painting or drawing patterns from nature.

As a craftsperson, Susie delights in the ‘old-fashioned’ traditional crafts of felting wool, rug hooking and basket making. She is most contented when she is working with willow; whether she is harvesting it in the great outdoors or weaving it into functional or sculptural forms, large and small.  She is always eager to learn new things herself and share the knowledge, skills and abilities she has acquired.

A six-week workshop for writers curious about memoir. Everyone has a story. But where to begin? What to include? What to leave out? What is memoir, anyway? Through use of writing prompts we will find side-door ways to enter your life experiences. Introduction of craft elements such as character development, setting, plot, imagery and dialogue, will help shape your stories and grow your skills as a writer. We will refer to Writing the Memoir: From Truth to Art, by Judith Barrington, and other resources.
