spent a busy but wonderful 4 days in st. john's. always alot to do and see. spend good time with my daughter and son-in-law and the 2 grandchildren. dropped off my product at the craft council shop and took in a few exhibitions at the craft council gallery. the next day i babysat - a rare treat for me to spend alone time with the grandchildren. in the afternoon i took them to the gala reopening at the anna templeton centre on duckworth st. it's been closed for a few years to undergo renovations and expansion. the integrity of the old building has been preserved but the inside is now filled with light and space. the anna templeton centre provides art instruction for all ages but mostly offers an outstanding 2 year program in textile studies. if i was starting my art career now (if i was 30 years younger) i'd go there and really learn how to use and make textiles.
