Traveling Workshops

Want me to come to you? I receive many requests to come teach workshops in various locations! I am honored that you would like to learn from me. Traveling either by car or plane requires a lot of pre-planning 🙂 Many of my requests start by asking for a price but I cannot give a rate until I know details.

  • How much equipment would I need to bring to a location?

  • How many students are expected?

  • Do you have an indoor location big enough for your participants?

  • Are there enough tables and chairs?

  • Do you have access to water, sinks and your own steamers or big pots?

  • Is there electrical power?

  • A place I can stay?

  • Available dates?

 

A well planned event can be hugely fun and exciting and I am happy to be a part of that.  Your location does not have to be state of the art! Contact me now for available dates in 2021! 

UPDATE: The unprecedented arrival of the COVID-19 pandemic of early 2020 has certainly changed how we do things! So I encourage you to look forward to dates in 2021!

What Do I teach besides Fiber Arts? 

Oh my, both my artist Hubby Stephen Filasky and I have been self employed most of our lives as artists versed in Portraits (my specialty) in all mediums from pencils to pastels to oils! Steve is known for his Plein Air landscapes in oils and his goldleaf lettering and design! Many of our popular group workshops are “How to” in acrylics. We created a number of “How to” videos with the nationwide art supplier Jerrysartarama.com as well as numerous workshops in painting. So sure, if adding  painting is in your agenda, we would love to share what hundreds of students have learned from us!
