When I step out of a conference I carry a feeling of euphoria and excitement. It puts gas in my tank. I’m fired up and inspired by what I’ve absorbed and by the new friends that I’ve made. The ideas are flowing and I am itching to fly back home to get working in my studio. That is the feeling I’ve captured with this course. Only you won’t need to hop on a plane.
This workshop is a spring board, a launch pad, a starting point.
Goal: To provide informational and inspirational sessions that will give
you more confidence to find your way working in a series (WIS).
I feel it is key to provide you with the inside stories of effective artists. I’m blessed to be friends with many thriving artists.
I think knowing how different artists think is fascinating.
Listen and learn from the stories of how 14 artists became inclined, interested and inspired to work in a series and how they work today. Their discoveries, motivation, wrong turns and good habits will give you an inside look at how thriving artists do what they do. They have similar and opposing methods of working in a series. You can take from it what speaks to you.
How is the workshop structured?
The content will be delivered as a series of videos with lessons and suggested activities that you can digest on you own, at your own pace. You can watch one a day, one a week or binge watch them all at once, like your favorite Netflix series. You get to set the pace. Many participants watch the videos over again because they are so rich.
The Launchpad Facebook group is where you will find a community of other students that are all getting serious about series making. The extroverts enthusiastically share and introverts discreetly absorb it all from the sidelines.
Next Session begins June 17, 2017.
Grab your seat and bring an open mind.
This is what the current Launchpad members are saying about the workshop:
Tell me some adjectives that describe this course: Fun. Inspiring. Encouraging. Motivating. Low-pressure. Engrossing. Addicting (can’t wait to get to the next video) Packed (with information). (I guess that would be “informative” but I’m trying to stress how MUCH info is there. – Sharon Robinson
I’m going to return to those videos over and over again, as I will to the links you provided. This was a very powerful source of information.
The material you present and your willingness to be so available to your students is incredible.
I love the FB group. I didn’t know if I would at first, but I find myself going right to it every day and love seeing what people are sharing and asking. I feel comfortable sharing too. It’s already given me a lot to think about and I suspect it will just get richer and richer as we get to know each other and get further into our series. I would say that it’s an extension of the workshop, a very important follow-up that will encourage participants to keep working in series. It’s a huge benefit to get your participation too. You are very generous. I would also say something about you and your enthusiasm. It’s impossible not to feel inspired in the face of your energy and experience.

It’s great fun to communicate with people in so many different areas of the world and to see that fiber artists have much in common. – Nancy Woods
Having access to all the videos, I felt like a kid in a candy store and just couldn’t stop at one. (That’s totally not like me.) ~ Donna Sheppard
One thing I really liked is the NOT getting a bunch of assignments right away, I can assign myself work if I want to, but you essentially said, “Hey, kick back, watch my videos, absorb what I’m saying, come to the Facebook page, hang out, then get going on what you want to, when you want to.” I love that.
Advice to new members: Go slow, savor each video. Plan on watching more than once. Participate in the FB group.
