One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

A walk in the woods. Any woods.

Teach, Learn, Share

I'll show you art objects I've made and listen to your story. I will try to respect you for the god/ant/star/human driftwood that you are. I may even throw some weird vegetable mush together for us. I can teach basic crochet, dreamcatcher weaving, patchwork, & share tips on clay sculpting & other art media.
