art heals and little hopes


There were 11 participants in last weekend's "art heals" retreat/workshop held in a beautiful and serene location.
When setting up the tables and supplies, I discovered in the kitchen several muffin tins that turned out to be perfect for distributing some of the buttons, beads and other embellishments.

Sessions were held Friday evening and Saturday morning, and I think the participants made some great little atcs:

awesome. It reminds me of the beaded prayer project http://www.beadedprayersproject.com

I made one when my friends husband died suddenly a few years ago. You can see it here if you want...

I love how you set up the table, everything looks so well prepared and good enough to eat with all the colours and textures! The muffin tins were a great idea.
The sun is adorable; looks like you had quite a few artists in your class.

Everyone's turned out so happy and colorful!

Thanks! I think they turned out well. I thought I had photographed others but they did not show up when I downloaded the photos from my camera. It was a wonderful room in an old farmhouse.

Beautiful work, art really does help the healing process.

How lovely, Deborah. ; ) I do believe art heals and soothes. It gives our mind a place to rest while our hands are busy.

I use muffin tins and vintage metal pie plates to corral all sorts of sewing items in my studio. They're often times 'just right!'
