Creative Clearinghouse

Some of the most memorable moments of self-discovery for me have come out of a class, workshop, or while reading a book. I think we set ourselves up for transformation (if even just a bit) when we invite learning into our lives.

With that in mind, I want to share a resource with you for finding those kinds of opportunities.  Creative Clearinghouse is exactly what it sounds like, a place for you to find information, reviews, and news about classes, books, and supplies.

I have it bookmarked so I can click through and dream about the next class I want to take and for a few art supplies I have been wishing to try out.  Oh, yah! Getting my creative geek on!  My favorites so far are….

Gelli Arts Gel Printing Plates: They remind me of some awesome plates I used in ceramics a few years ago. (I wonder what they would do with polymer clay.) I also love adding texture to my artwork and imagine they might be perfect for that.

Free Motion Graffiti: I love using my sewing machine in ways it was not originally intended. In fact, often when someone sees the machine out and asks if I am sewing, I have to confess that I am mostly butchering fabric!  Alisa Burke elevates my kind of sewing to an artform in this class. Maybe it might even help me go from fabric shredder to fiber arts aficionado. Looks like great fun!

I wonder what you will put on your wishlist from Creative Clearinghouse. Come back by and let me know. Let’s dream together!

    I have a hate/hate relationship with my sewing machine, so I would have to stay away from sewing classes. Alisa has so many tasty looking classes! I need to take a lettering class, though, so I would first sign up for Joanne Sharpe’s Letter Love 101!

  2. thank you for the tip… sounds like a real time saver as well as a cool place when you want to go soul surfing for adventure.

    I too, usually end up hating on my sewing machine. My Mom would be sad to hear that since she valiantly tried to teach me how to sew when I was growing up! I haven’t given up completely tho, and maybe this is the inspiration I need to try to sew on some of my Gelli Arts monoprints 😉
