Welcome to the fourth issue of Cocoonnections!
As promised here you'll find information on my new Eagle Lake Retreat Centre, and a number of new workshops, which I'm very excited about! Familiar columns are back, such as a review of workshops I've given, images of my latest work, information about upcoming events and a stunning new Piece of the Month… We'd love to know what you think of this latest issue…

Adventures.

The last six months have been full of change and new adventures! I'm now almost settled in my new home and studio in Eagle Lake, near Haliburton, Ontario. I'm offering expressive arts adventures, arts retreats, workshops, and B&B&B (bed, breakfast and time
simply to 'be') in this special place.
The workshops I gave throughout the summer were very well received, as were a number of retreats here at Eagle Lake. Hope you'll take the time to look at some of the extraordinary work shown in the 'Workshops in Review'.
Fibre Focus magazine published my article: 'Taking a Leap - Unmasked' in their summer issue. It was quite a thrill to see the back page spread with my work in colour! Now a proud graduate of the Expressive Arts Post Diploma program at Sir Sandford Fleming, I'm excited to announce four new expressive arts workshops…and there are more in the planning stages!

Let us know what you think!
