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.
