Project Freeform aims in opening opportunity to meet inspiration through creating, and creating together. Practicing. Shaping visions, through art – into forms of that which we want to take the pleasure in seeing, in experiencing.

Studio News & Events

Hi People!

Happy Fall! I hope this bright and cooling down season is finding you all well.

THERE IS HAPPY NEWS TO SHARE!

A new Ballard studio - to play within creatorshops & projects and community events for celebrating!

It has been a treasure sharing and enjoying arts with my family, friends I love, and out and about within community, in Ballard and beyond. Gratitude for the incredible gifts of my mother Carrie, and the community that has been enjoyed for many years.

This October, the doors to the art studio, Project Freeform, in Ballard, have opened. The studio has been in muse for years. Life aligned and serendipity opened the opportunity to share. I am looking forward to sharing time together in imagining possibilities through clay and other art forms.

Thank you to all who joined the Gratitude Celebration in the month of my mother’s birth! It was a bright fire filled raku party with super creative humans, delicious food, stellar music by Trouble at Home and magical metallic clay treasures. What a GIFT to have you all fill the studio with your bright selves in sharing. THANK YOU!

And thank you to the wonderful children and parents who volunteered their time in October to create with me in filling my first studio glaze kiln. Lovely times.

There are projects in design, and in wait, for creators. Come enjoy!

See you at the studio!

Creative gifts to start a new year!

What could be better? Gift certificates available.

And remember...

Big Kids (aka Adults) are people too! We thrive in creating together as well. And many feel left out of the fun when university, career or little ones take center stage, and all resources flow to these developments. However … to replenish our own stores for our personal vitality and for opening sustainable gifting out into the world for that and those we love. Gift to yourself! The opportunity within time and community to imagine, and create out from your inspiration. A wellspring. Come play!
