DWe’re getting to the end of the Summer. In the olden days (before I got married) I would camp with friends at the Philadelphia Folk Festival I usually volunteered so I could get in for free and always ended up on a work detail that involved patrolling the campgrounds all night.
Beadfest Philadelphia is a good way to mark the end of Summer these days. I have never taken a class there, but this year I am taking one with Susan Lenart Kazmer. I took a class with her some time ago and it was a wonderful experience. It will be interesting to see what I can do given that I have been having major hand problems and am scheduled for surgery. But I didn’t want to cancel the class. Worse come to worse, I’ll watch.
Here are some late late summer pictures from my recent wanderings in Seaview at the Jersey Shore.
And last but not least a great polymer video from Fiona Abel-Smith that not only covers construction of kaleidoscope canes, but does it using six different clays. Check it out.
