I couldn´t believe that I am coming to teach again. It was all quite quick, and then I was sitting in the car with my daughter Monica, heading to Maribor. I didn’t know what to expect but I was sure it will be fun girls ride.
After couple hours of drive we get it to the hotel and our host, Mihaela, took us to the other artists to a modern restaurant for dinner. The other day, Petra was our tour guide through small city of Maribor, we saw the center with beautiful square/park, WWII monument and couple churches.
Afternoon it was first of the workshops. The workshops were directly next to Art trade creative shop – and I must say also wandering through regals staffed with creative tools was joy for both of us and Monica immediately bought couple of markers which are her most favorite now. You can check their offer online www.bead.si
It was quite difficult for me to find 4 hours topic, but I know Slovenian girls can work quickly. Other artists were showing different creative techniques as wattercolour, textile painting, paper sculptures, and many others.
Dinner was together with all the artists, we talked about arts in different countries, do you know the difference between graffiti and street art? Food was delicious, in Slovenia you can eat their specials with dandelion leaves and potatoes.
The other day was also workshop day, all participants did great job, but I forget to make pictures :-/
We left soon after the workshop, so we missed the cake, but the way home was long and I am not used to drive so much. But finally it went fine, we could make it with just a few stops. Hopefully the weather was beautiful.
I am thankful I could teach and travel again, thank you Mihaela Vindiš for the opportunity and for your fabulous care of us!
Also – this event took me back to polymer clay. And I must say – I missed it!
