Today in pottery class we learned how to create a vessel with a lid. I have to admit, it was a struggle. 🙇🏻‍♀️ I went through a lot of clay and had a major problem with collapsing walls. 🤦‍♀️ BUT, I persevered past the point of frustration. I tried to learn from my mistakes. And I did manage to do it in the end! 🎉 Just so you know, I *hate* being bad at things. But I know that it’s good for me to do things that challenge me. Learning can be difficult and ugly and exhausting and humbling. But it can also be exhilarating and exciting and fascinating and fun! I’m proud of myself for persevering and I’m excited for whatever the next challenge may be! 💪 #julieloveslearning

This week’s pottery class was super fun. We focused on finishing. It turns out that I ❤️ trimming! Who knew?! It’s so satisfying to bring the pot into a more beautiful shape and add all sorts of details. I’m really enjoying this class and also so much more appreciative of handmade pottery. I’m sure that everything I’m making is misshapen and ugly, but I’m so proud of it nonetheless! 😍 So here is my little bowl, ready to dry out and get fired in the kiln. 🙌 #whatjuliemade

I’m taking a pottery class — wheel throwing. I’m terrible at it, but so proud of myself whenever I do anything close to how the teacher explains it’s supposed to be! 💪 I think it’s important to always be learning new skills, to always be a beginner, to always do things that make you uncomfortable. And best of all, today we learned how to fix our pots! I was able to carve my misshapen pot from last week into something cool and much closer to round (last photo). 🎉 Just 5 weeks of class left. It’s going way too fast! #julieloveslearning

I decided to “swatch” each of the brushes in the procreate app. After all, when I buy new art supplies I always take them for a spin to see what they can do. Why should digital supplies be any different, right?! It was a fantastic exercise, as it turns out. I learned so much about the sometimes subtle differences between the brushes, as well as how these digi brushes diverge from my traditional ones. For instance the gouache brush in this app behaves totally differently than real life gouache IMHO. The next thing I want to explore is all the brush customization you can do! 🤔🎉

Day three of class with @pat_pauly and my assignment was to create one piece of fabric with dark only on the edges and one piece of fabric that was lopsided with dark on one side & light on the other. (Swipe to see. And one more attempt is in my Instagram story - click on the circle around my face in my profile) I really enjoyed the challenge! I’m not sure that I nailed either assignment yet. Going to keep working on it! 💪 #whatjuliemade

I’m taking a week-long class with @pat_pauly at @prochemicalanddye in Fall River, MA. These are the fabrics I dyed yesterday. 🙌 I brought 15 yards of fabric with me, but at this rate, I better find some more fabric STAT! 😬😂 #iworkfast .
