December Studio ClassesCategory: Newsletter — Nov 17, 10:30 PM
The leaves almost gone and my focus shifts more inward. The studio glows with light and I am immersed in the kozo and wings of my insect installation project. During this season I always like to take a few days and open the studio up for others to come create in this beautiful space.
This season give yourself to the deep satisfaction and joy of creating. I'm offering a special opportunity to spend time in an inspired space with an intimate class and wonderful materials...
ALL NATURAL: A DAY IN JILL'S STUDIO

Our source is an inner animal skin. Bring your curiosity, all levels welcome.
