What participants are saying about Life Fibers Workshops

“It is so important to blend hearts and spirits with other wonderful women. I Loved the way you guys created that sacred environment…hmmm…reflecting on the awesomeness of that for a moment…wonderfull”

“This workshop/retreat was much more than just “art” for me. It was an opportunity to re-evaluate where I am in my artistic journey and to try new things (food, people, environment) without too much hesitation. This was more of a soul retreat/revitalization for me. Thank you both so much!!”

“It was incredible.  I am still reliving it and cannot believe I was there and then I look at the completed project.  I am still in “awe”!”

“ Karen & Sharen! You are both excellent teachers, very skilled and talented artists, and have superhuman skills of organization. I had so much fun learning from you both.  Direct hands on learning of new techniques. You were both very accessible and happily shared what you know. Variety of art supplies. I loved that we had so much to choose from!”

“I have such a passion for creating and sharing my art, whether it is defining the detail on a large acrylic piece, reminding myself to allow the watercolors to do their thing, or mixing it up with different materials and mediums in a mixed media piece, I find joy and peace in creating art and sharing that passion with others.”



 Karen Rester


“I am an artist who enjoys working in many mediums; spinning, weaving, painting, fiber and mixed media collage. I have an incredible passion for self-expression and believe that each piece of art has it’s own unique style, creativity and imagination in it. I love being a part of that handful of artisans, making art on spinning wheels, looms, canvas and paper. It is not just an art of the mind, but of my heart and hands. It is a process I love.”
