Totems for Workshop

becky_ia(z4 IA)July 30, 2010

Pictures of new totems made for a workshop last weekend. (Called "Bling" in the Garden). My class was filled and there seemed to be a lot of excitement when finished. I even took a box of glass pieces, set them all out on a table and let participants "play".

These are so much fun to make.

Are these your students totems or ones that you made as examples? Either way, glad your workshop went well and everyone had fun! Great job! Love the blue one best and the topper on it especially.

Very cute. I like the ones with the little 'thingies' inside them. What kind of adhesive did you use? I was using silicone caulk, but wondeering if there was something more suitable. Cheryl

I love the totems but would also love instructions for making the large,what I presume,butterfly with cloth wings in your garden.That is amazing.

Very pretty totems, Becky! Bet you recruited some GJers with your workshop! (totem ones, anyway!) I like all of them...the cobalt blue one with the interesting topper...striking! But I like how you combined your beautiful glass ...& added unusual bling in some! Not only in the gardens but any of these would be beautiful art pcs inside ...or on a porch. TFS! Jeanne S.
