... at the Sudbury Art Association Holiday Market

salvaged samples repurposed as soft "leather-wear': cuffs, pedants, lapel pins
fused plastic bag belts

Farming implements repurposed in my Noyes Farm Series
a fruitful trio made from pieced and fused plastic bags 

Snowgnomes ... mischievous winter folk
                                                               ode to Noyes farm                                                                                                                                                                                                               
- two sold from the countertop
before tags could even be place

Meeting interesting people,
making connections with the potential of prosperity,
feeling community, sharing about repurposing,
exchanging creative ideas ... all good.

2011 Fall Art Classes

            Fall art sessions inspired students to look at discarded objects with new eyes.
                            These rockin' Walldolls will shake-up plain walls with new life.

She gathered the clues for a different type of Nancy Drew mystery.

Food Fight!
Hand-drills, pliers, glue guns, wire, heavy-duty scissors ... tools of the trade.

Fishing for memories at the shore

leather, glass, cellulose clay

Four Fun Fridays of Fusing ...
Everybody loved the "magic" in repurposing and fusing plastic bags.

Students made fused plastic bag wall hangings, wrap-mounted on repurposed timber.
* I add the free-motion sewing.

These beautiful student-produced table lanterns glow from within using tea-lights.

Imagine the possibilities!
