Snowgnomes: Stuffed with Personality

                          Students came out of the February cold
     and into the warmth of my cozy studio workshop for a session of Snowgnome-building.  Repurposing is key to creating these mischievous winter folk.  Experienced sweaters, hardware, containers, buttons, game-pieces & more were given new use as the Snowgnomes came to life.  Glue-guns, hand tools, needles and floss were the surgical implements of choice.  Shared laughter and delight rippled through-out the creative process.  Ideas were forming of what else one might use to design more creatures at home.  No kit, just creative wit.  Let the trickle-down effect begin.
