Back from the Big Easy...New Orleans. Had a great time. Lots of goodies to share but mostly wanted to give everyone a bit of an overview. Started out at Priestess Miriam's Voodoo Temple for our meet and greet. Lots of killer shrines...everywhere.
Here's a nice one
And of course there was, Cafe DuMonde...mmmmmmm
and some arty pontificating by Katherine and Andrea
Fried pickles....and other things at the Praline Connection
A little late night music over in Algiers across the Mississippi.
What about cemeteries?...ooooh doggie!
and yes more Voodoo at the Seance Room of Muriel's Restaurant.
And believe it or not...with all this going on...everyone was even able to create some art...and pretty exceptional stuff too. The class concept was to create a shrine or offering place for your resident ghost to keep them from rattling you windows and answering your phone. Here's the classes' creations:

A great time with a great bunch of artists.
Plans are in the works for next years NOLAworkshop. A whole lot of junking in store and some local artist studio tours are some of the things being planned out. As for the 2013 class project...lets just say it involves some of sleight of hand...more soon...very soon.
