A Fond Farewell and a Warm Welcome! Artistic Alchemy Retreat- 2018

Welcome everyone.

Christine here, with news about my status in Artistic Alchemy. After twenty years of teaching color, I’ve decided to declare myself an “Alchemist Emeritus,” that is, retired. I won’t be at the retreat this year, but you’ll see me now and then, perhaps as a guest blogger. My last regular AA post will be on February 23 and will include my studio sale items.

Being a part of AA has been a delight, and I dearly love my colleagues. And my students—wow, you have inspired and amazed me, and have kept me going with your eagerness to try new ideas. When you have success with color, my heart sings. I already miss you.

I’ll now be sharing my latest work in my newsletter, “Christine’s Color Connection” (you can sign up on the Home page of my website, christinebarnes.com). I’m working on a re-design of my website, with new features, and 2018 is down as my year to produce my first online class.

So, onward to new experiences, and a big welcome to Jane Haworth—she is a delight, and you will love her work. Please stay in touch; I’m guessing and hoping that our paths will cross again.

Enjoy your new adventures Christine. You will be missed, but we know we’ll see you when we pop into the local quilt shop.

And now a warm welcome to the newest member of our Alchemy Team,

JANE HAWORTH

 

We are so happy to show you  what we’re doing this year!

  2. Thank you so much for sharing your wealth of knowledge and beautiful work. I will miss seeing your work but wish you all the very best in your “retirement”. I feel that you will be busier than ever.
    Enjoy

    • Thank you! Yes, I may well be busier than ever, but they will be new things—and hopefully will build a few new brain cells. (Doing my own website, gulp, is like a college course. Well, not quite . . . 🙂

  3. Christine, I wish you all the success the world has to offer in your new endeavors. Will look forward to your beautiful peaceful face in all the new places. Linda

  4. I’m so excited for your new adventures Christine! Of course we all want the most successful,
    creative future for you, and will follow you wherever you go!!!

    • Thank you, Janet! You are always so supportive of your fellow creatives, and it is much appreciated! It’s exciting to go in a new direction with the website and classes. Looking forward to doing more fun stuff (like garments :-)). See you soon!

  5. I never got to take a “live” class with you–but have all of your books. I look forward to taking your on-line class. So–I gather you won’t be teaching classes for Guilds??

    • Thanks so much for commenting, and I apologize for not seeing this sooner (been a busy week 🙂 I will definitely be teaching for guilds this year and next, just not multi-day or far-away gigs. (Sending all my quilts through as luggage or shipping them always worried me a bit.) Though I won’t be writing for the AA blog, you can keep up with me through my newsletter. I would love to “see” you in an online class!

  6. Darn this was the year I was going to try for your retreat! Love your work and I will continue to follow you. I highly recommend retirement.

    • Thanks, Lynda! I’m sorry you won’t be able to do a retreat workshop with me. I’m not retiring completely—I’ll still be teaching regionally (mostly one-day classes) and I’m developing my first multi-lesson online class. You can stay in touch through my newsletter. (If you don’t already get it, you can sign up on the Home page of my website.) Again, thanks for your nice comment!
