My Calendar



My felted wool bag.




NOTE FROM A STUDENT: "Jude, this comes to say how very much I enjoyed your workshop at the Forestry Center, and I think you will be pleased to know I have been putting your teaching to use. I recently purchased a good journal and have just finished my second page, with the topic being my trip to Cape Perpetua yesterday. And yes, I am liking the effect I get with the paints I purchased. This morning I painted my sketches with your book at hand for ideas on how to handle the rocks and ocean especially. The worksop day was so full with the excellent art show, and the added bonus of the John Muir prints - a very inspiring day." ~ Best wishes, Lynda

* FALL RETREAT AT LAKE LINDBERGH, MONTANA - Nature Journaling retreat with Jude Siegel

SEPTEMBER 24-29, 2014 (Wed-Mon, 5 nights, 4 full days)

We will stay at an old historic building, known as Lindbergh Lodge or Laird Lodge in the past. Cricket Wingfield will be our host and coordinator. Our days will be relaxed and slow, sometimes staying at the lake, and other times going to another beautiful place, perhaps by boat, or an easy walk to waterfalls or a spectacular view of the mountains. We will all have turns with preparing meals and cleanup at the lodge. Our group will be small, and we will work together.
