Roberta A.

Sandy Hook, CT

About Roberta

When I was 30 years old, living in Sao Paulo, Brazil, I seized the opportunity to rediscover my artistic roots and took a class to learn painting on ceramics.

A few years later we moved to Newtown CT and I got the opportunity to progress beyond merely painting on ceramic. Besides starting off from scratch with clay, instead of bisque, the scope of work expanded and today encompasses many styles and varying techniques.
I first showcased my work to the public at the 2nd Newtown Arts Festival in 2013. I was encouraged by the response, and shortly after this show was invited to join Connectic
ut Clay Artists an organization of professional clay artists who collaborate creatively and intellectually, and exhibit their art collectively.
Since January 2015 I have been teaching ceramic classes to middle and high school students at a homeschool coop and recently also started to teach at the YMCA in Danbury CT.

Rosanne V.

Armonk, NY

About Rosanne

I am a life-long crocheter, having learned from my grandmother and the Girl Scouts as a child. I am beginning my coursework for certification as a Crochet Master by the Crochet Guild of America this fall. I can work from written instructions as well as charts and often create my own patterns. I have used all types of yarn from the bulkiest roving wool to the finest thread. Currently my focus is on baby clothes, toys and blankets - new generation coming in to my family! One of my primary life pleasures is gifting my creations.
I have enjoyed teaching crochet informally throughout my life to
friends and friends of friends and am always thrilled when the skill takes root in another. I currently belong to a few local crochet / knit circles and attend CGOA conferences as regularly as possible.
If you're up for learning or honing your crochet while sharing knowledge, laughs and a yummy snack, I'm your gal.

NOTE: I am right-handed. It is sometimes difficult for a left-handed person to learn from a right-handed crocheter.
