Announcement- Retirement from Teaching! Thanks for the Years!

at Pro Chem, MA 2011
NH Mixed Media artist, Wen Redmond has made the bittersweet decision to retire from teaching workshops- unless inspired by mad impulse! 
Many of her techniques can be found in magazines or DVD's in links on her workshop page on her blog.

at the SDA Conference 2011
So she's not dropping off the map! It's just life has offered other opportunities both in her art and in her family that requires her devotion and energy.

Here's what happened though-
2010 Northern Lights Quilt Guild
The NE guilds, MA/RI and NH/VT/ME hosted Leni Weiner at the recent SAQA meeting held during the MQX Festival in Manchester, earlier this month. Her talk was about listening to your voice, which I thought I've been doing.
However, listening also means n
ot doing everything like you always have, it means eliminating parts of your art that aren't working for you anymore- etc- go listen to her lecture- Fantastic!
Milford NH Souhegan Valley Quilters' Guild 2011
Anyway, I realized that I don't want or need to teach anymore. I enjoy it but I have another focus both in art and family that helped me decide I can't spend the time on garnering, publicizing, gathering supplies, review, revision, travel, dealing with cancellations and keeping ALL the supplies in my studio for the next time. I will let it go! And never say never- there may be an odd workshop here and there.
sigh, thank you Leni!!

Wen, Listening to your soul has always been very important to you. Follow your own path. It will lead you exactly where you are supposed to go, my friend.

Thank you for your warm comment. It's true and I've been thinking on it for some time.
It feel right immediately!
