Huib Petersen workshop: March 2015
The consensus was to select the Sweet Pea Butterfly project. Huib reports that
the sweet pea butterfly can split up in two one day classes, One day the Butterfly (with the option for those who want to do the monarch they can), and day two the flower part, with the option for those who only want to do the flower to do the Art Nouveau Sweet Pea necklace, and then those who want to do the sweet pea butterfly necklace project can take both classes.
Possible future teachers were suggested for further discussion at a later date:
