Artistic Artifacts or "The Annex", is housed in a warehouse-type building. As you walk through the door, you are transported into a world of colorful fabrics, yarns, paints and the ephemera used by mixed-media and quilt artists. You can get lost looking at all these goodies.

I've been asked to put together some proposals for teaching at The Annex, in particular a class in doll making. I can imagine what fun it will be to incorporate some of these amazing textures and fabrics into my dolls!
