It was a rusty weekend with Pam Nichols

Students came from Calgary, Ontario, Wisconsin, Texas, Santa Fe, New York, Portland and Seattle to attend the third Dyeing To Rust workshop with rust goddess, Pam Nichols.
Despite the scorching heat (unusual for us here in the Pacific Northwest), the nine artists created gorgeous rusted papers and fabric to incorporate in their encaustic paintings.   

This group worked hard and created some beautiful art.   

Our next class will be in Bend, Oregon. We will go picking for metal before starting class. Ooh.  Thanks, Pam. Having way too much fun. 

Here she is with one of her creations from our second Dyeing To Rust workshop.

    Is the Bend Ore class sold out and if not, details?  xox  “Tell me, what is it you plan to do with your one wild and precious life?”  M Oliver, “The Summer Day”


    1. HI Carol,  We are still finalizing details but it will be April 15-19 in Bend, OR.  We will pick at the scrap yard the first two days and then use our treasures to rust and wax the remaining days. I will keep your name on the list to contact once we have everything together if these dates work for you. Just let me know.  Kathie From: Bellissima To: Sent: Monday, July 20, 2015 8:31 AM Subject: [Bellissima] Comment: “It was a rusty weekend with Pam Nichols” #yiv6863166302 a:hover {color:red;}#yiv6863166302 a {text-decoration:none;color:#0088cc;}#yiv6863166302 a.yiv6863166302primaryactionlink:link, #yiv6863166302 a.yiv6863166302primaryactionlink:visited {background-color:#2585B2;color:#fff;}#yiv6863166302 a.yiv6863166302primaryactionlink:hover, #yiv6863166302 a.yiv6863166302primaryactionlink:active {background-color:#11729E;color:#fff;}#yiv6863166302 | | |

    Hi Kathie,

    I added you as a friend on facebook but haven’t seen anything on San Miguel de Allende trip. i have a few concerns that would probably be answered by the group.

    Please add me to the group.. Joanne Joshua Thank you!


    1. Just added you. What concerns or questions do you have?  We meet in Houston to take the same flight to Leon. I will have a driver there to pick you up, and Judy and her husband, John will also be on that flight.  We return the same way, van to Leon and fly out on the same United flight to Houston.  I’m here if you have more questions.  Kathie From: Bellissima To: Sent: Monday, July 27, 2015 1:37 PM Subject: [Bellissima] Comment: “It was a rusty weekend with Pam Nichols” #yiv7578049866 a:hover {color:red;}#yiv7578049866 a {text-decoration:none;color:#0088cc;}#yiv7578049866 a.yiv7578049866primaryactionlink:link, #yiv7578049866 a.yiv7578049866primaryactionlink:visited {background-color:#2585B2;color:#fff;}#yiv7578049866 a.yiv7578049866primaryactionlink:hover, #yiv7578049866 a.yiv7578049866primaryactionlink:active {background-color:#11729E;color:#fff;}#yiv7578049866 | | |
