Workshop: Mixed Media Junk Journal: Friday, July 8th, 6-8pm: Do you ever feel like you have artists’ block? Maybe you’re an out-of-practice creative wanting to get back in the habit? Perhaps you have the creative spark, but you’re not sure where to start? We’re here to help! Join our Mixed Media Junk Journal Workshop to get your creative juices flowing. Play and explore design ideas through a variety of materials and mediums. Participants will first create a handmade book from recycled materials, found papers, or ephemera. Next, instructor Tori Weyers will guide participants through creating a mixed media spread using various paints, inks, pencils, crayons, washi tape, stencils, marks, graphite, and more.
Workshop: Wire Wrapping Basics: Saturday, July 23rd, 1-4pm: Have you ever wanted to go on a gem hunt? Well, here is your chance! Rana Salame Striedinger of Salame Jewelry Designs is opening her treasure chest of gemstones for you to peruse and select from to create your own one-of-a-kind jewelry. Students will learn several wire wrapping and jewelry assembly techniques to create two unique items – students can choose to make a pair of earrings and a necklace, two pairs of earrings, or two necklaces.
Workshop: Succulent Terrarium: Saturday, August 13th, 1-2:30pm: Low-maintenance, lovely, and easy to assemble: succulent terrariums are the perfect spring project to bring some green back into your world. Join Rana Salame in our shop as she shares her expertise in basic succulent cutting, rooting, and plant care. This class is great for beginners and open to children, too – one child and one caregiver together may purchase a ticket. Please note: one ticket is worth one terrarium – if you would like to made additional terrariums, please be sure to purchase additional tickets.
See ya next week, friends!
