Okay - I was going to write this post as:
Membership Fee = $x
Registration = $x
Day fee for not staying at hotel = $x
Class fee = $x
Kit fee = $x
A day spent with Karen = priceless
but, to be honest, I'm embarrassed to say what I paid to take this one workshop.. and it takes a LOT to embarrass me...individually as you are paying out the $ over a couple of months, it doesn't seem unreasonable - thank Heaven I thought the class fees a little steep, so I only decided to take one day-long class.
Is this normal? the real-world cost of workshops?? None of the fiber-related workshops over the last few years cost me that much - an entire week in Houston with 7 workshops wasn't much more than that (removing cost of hotel). Well - anywho - that's that for workshops for a long time. It will have to be something really compelling to get me to take another one (in any art-form) unless it's free or less than $20!
So - it was fun - as only a day with Karen can be...

The goody-bag was nice - it even had a towel with my name on it!
|Other Hitchhiker's fans will be pleased to know |
that I KNOW where my towel is
and that it is specifically mine!!
But, once you get started, it begins to go well..
Until, at last:
Must not have done too badly if the teacher didn't mind posing with me!
It was fascinating that two people can take the same class and come up with different designs:
|Karen's on left - mine on right|
And the basket? Well - it goes behind glass with a copy of this blog with the real cost marked on it so whoever inherits it understands its lowest monetary value!
