Freecycle and UFOs
Saturday August 19, 2017
1:00 - 3:30 PM
Montrose Texas Art Supply Upstairs Classroom
2001 Montrose Blvd, Houston TX 77006
For our August meeting the Guild will be doing something a little different!
In a "freecycle" event everyone brings in polymer clay stuff that they no longer want. We put all these things out so that someone else in the Guild, who would use them, can adopt them. Conversely, each of us might find something that we would like to adopt. One person's trash is another person's treasure! This is a great way to unclutter your craft space while giving unused tools, clay, canes, or anything else polymer new homes. This can be especially helpful to newer members who haven't been claying long and might be short on equipment. So dig out those tools you haven't used in years, or the clay brand you don't prefer, the mold you don't like much, or the stamp you accidentally bought two of, and bring them in and give them new life in another artist's hands. And, who knows, you may come across something you've been needing that another artist no longer wants!
But wait! There's more! We also want you to bring in your UFOs: unfinished objects. We all have projects that stalled before they were done. Maybe the muse left you and wouldn't return, or you ran up against a problem that you couldn't solve. Fresh eyes from other artists might be just what you need. A more experienced artist might have a solution to your problem. Maybe some good old fashioned brainstorming will do the trick! Polymer clay artists love helping each other and getting the perspective of other artists can be a valuable learning experience. So don't give up on your UFOs! Bring them in and let's see what we can do together.
We hope to see you all there!
We also want to remind everybody that we will not be having a regular Guild meeting in September because of the Lone Star Retreat, but will meet as usual on the third Saturday in October.
WHERE AND WHEN
We meet on the third Saturday of each month from 1:00 PM to 3:30 PM. Each meeting includes Show & Tell and a Demonstration or Hands-On Program.
Our permanent meeting place is the upstairs classroom at the Montrose Texas Art Supply at 2001 Montrose Blvd, Houston TX 77006
Texas Art Supply has asked that our members park in the warehouse parking lot across the street from the main store, or in the periphery of the main parking lot, so that we don't interfere with customer parking. Please be sure to comply with this. They are being very generous in providing us with a meeting place, and we want to keep them happy!
