Today was the last day of the Buckeye Bash - a polymer clay retreat initiated by the Dayton and Columbus Polymer Clay Guilds. This retreat is one of my favorites, and I always come back energized and bursting with ideas. This year is no exception - Mari O'Dell shared several techniques she has developed recently, and Marie Segal, Beth Curran, and Sue Hartman all shared new ideas. I did a refresher session on silkscreen, and all 48 of us shared tips across our work tables.
In a world that feels like it's gone crazy, four days concentrating on growing our skills is an incredible panacea.
