MASTER CLASS CAMP 2015: ONLINE REGISTRATION OPENS WITH A BANG!

22 04 2015

Yes, as you can see we are finally moving into the 21st Century with online registration – and so far, so good.  This year’s event brings us two talented instructors from Germany – Anke Humpert and Jana Lehmann.

HUMPERT - FUNGUS

HUMPERT – FUNGUS

Anke’s offering is a new direction for her.  She had two new pieces with her when she taught at Cabin Fever in February and I admired them both. As a matter of fact, I took one of them home with me as the auction winner.  The other, the Hungry Fungus, went home with Nan Roche.  Needless to say, she received raves about both pieces, so I asked her to teach a 2-day class at MCC 2015. Updated workshop information is here.  Online registration can be found here.

LEHMANN - GRAPHIC CANES

LEHMANN – GRAPHIC CANES

Jana Lehmann is a master at creating graphic designs with polymer.  I’ve admired her work for sometime.  Her bright colors and crisp lines have intrigued me and I am so pleased to have her join the ranks with us at MCC.  Not much info that I can find on a website, but go to her Flickr and Pinterest pages and find lots of eye candy. Updated workshop information is here.  Online registration can be found here.

CFCAF 2015: MASSAGING THE INNER ARTIST

13 02 2015

Creating under pressure can often be stressful.  But I realize each year as we begin Cabin Fever, that attending for some is their get-away, a time for relaxing and allowing their inner artist (many are doctors, nurses, IT people with a lot of daily pressure) to come out to play and be massaged.

We had an exciting first day of Cabin Fever Creative Arts Fest 2015 and the rooms were abuzz!  And, goody bags overflowing – but it’s just the beginning.  We have 6 more days of immersing ourselves into our art and absorbing what we can from the over-abundance of creative talent.

Nan Roche, Marie Segal, and Eugena Topina were our first instructors up and they didn’t disappoint.  Today, Nan and Marie come back for their collaborative workshop on Bauhaus design, the Mitchell sisters bring on their engineering and design expertise, Robert Dancik shows us how concrete is not just for sidewalks any more and Christi Friesen shares how to dramatically adorn ourselves.

Tonight also begins the first of two nights of our newly added mini-workshops which are open to public registration.  Maureen Carlson, Anke Humpert, and Mags Bonham join us for tonight.  Cost is $35 and you can register onsite. Can not wait!

 





CFCAF 2015: THE COUNTDOWN BEGINS – 6 DAYS TIL CREATIVE IMMERSION

6 02 2015

WOW!  Less than one week til Cabin Fever begins and I’ve got loads of work to get done still!  If you been waiting, do it now.  We’ve opened registration for day trippers and we’ve added some 2-our evening workshops for those unable to attend during the day.

There is still time to join us and create your own immersion studies.  Here’s a sneak peak at two of the evening workshops.

CFCAF 2015: MAUREEN CARLSON TO RECEIVE AWARD

2 02 2015

Maureen has been working with polymer for decades and chances are, one of the first face or foot molds you used were one of her designs.  If you’ve ever visited her studio, Maureen Carlson Center for Creative Arts in Jordan, MN, you’d see just how spirited she is – even down to the real faerie door in the tree by the creek!

We are honored to present this year’s Creative Pioneer and Innovator Award to Maureen.  She has blazed the trail for many of us and created inspiration all around.  Her spirited work and thoughtful creative process has helped many focus on what’s important – just living.

If you are interested in attending or would like to send a congratulatory note, please email Kathryn at cabinfeverclayfestival@yahoo.com or leave a comment below.





CFCAF 2015: FEB 12-18, RING IN THE NEW YEAR WITH A GIFT TO YOURSELF -YOU DON’T WANT TO MISS THIS

1 01 2015

Happy New Year to you all!  Now that the holidays are over and the New Year has begun, it’s time to give your creative spirit a gift.  Join us for this one-of-a-kind event, now in it’s 8th year.

 Take advantage of an opportunity to fill your days with classes from a choice of 16 different instructors (Maureen Carlson, Jana Roberts Benzon, Robert Dancik, Dayle Doroshow, Christi Friesen, Lindly Haunani, Anke Humpert, Doreen Kassel, Randee Ketzel, Ann and Karen Mitchell, Melanie Muir, Kathryn Jo Ottman, Nan Roche, Marie Segal, Eugena Topina, and Teri Walters) and make new friends.  Take away skills and techniques to improve your work and develop a style all your own.

There are two things that set this even apart from any other:

First, CFCAF has the largest number of polymer instructors gathered in one location.  You have your choice of which classes you want to attend and have a 24-hour room to work in while not in class.  There is also an opportunity to show and sell your work to your peers.  Attendees of Cabin Fever range from novice to professional artists, some who have been attending since year one.

Second, the auction at CFCAF has each year benefited one or more charities including American Cancer Society, CERF, and Wounded Warriors Fund.  This year will be no different.

So, what are you waiting for?  CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD THE REGISTRATION FORM AND WORKSHOP DESCRIPTIONS  and register today.
