My very first three-day paper flower retreat with wonderful Ali DeJohn of The Makerie was held at the private studio of Fran Meneley (At Hand Studio) in October 2018 in Boulder, Colorado. What a wonderful time with eleven students, working through a difficult curriculum and learning a lot about each other in the process. This format of teaching is new to me, and I hope that my teaching style and expectations will evolve over each retreat to find the perfect balance of technical (and philosophical) learning combined with the freedom for students to use what they’ve learned for more freeform work. I had a great time and will never forget the people I met and got to know over these three days.
