Carl Rohrs Workshop Highlights

Carl Rohrs rolled into town for his 2nd of three workshops. The new camera and slide set up allows us to stay in our seats as he demonstrates, freeing us to follow along or take notes from our seats! It's a terrific teaching tool! Each workshop is a combination of demonstrations and show and tell, one on one help and guidance, and slides of work he has traveled the world to see in museum and private collections. He introduced us to paper cutwork last month and brought in more exampes for us to see up close.
