Saturday and Sunday it was "hurray for gazebos and spirits houses!" Two dozen participants in the CBAS workshop focused on the many-part gazebo structure assembled with "Us and Ts" on the first day and then learned a different assembly technique making spirit houses on the second day. When the basic spirit house structures were all locked into place, everyone had time to get their creative juices flowing with embellishments for most of the afternoon. It was an inspiring weekend.
Thanks to the CBAS Visiting Artist Committee and CBAS Board for pitching in to handle all the details for Paul Johnson's visit. Special thanks to Janice for hosting the wrap-up pizza supper at the end of the workshop. And much gratitude to the Art Academy of Cincinnati for providing space for the lecture and workshop.
