Coming to California!

Hi gang!  Hope you'll forgive the nervousness, I made my first videos to talk about my upcoming classes at CREATE Orange County in June!  (Anyone who knows me KNOWS how much I dread being on this side of the camera!)

Please tell your friends who may live in the area, I have a few open spaces in my classes still!

Tennessee Anyone?

Hi gang!  I've been out on the road again, and working on some new workshop ideas for NEXT Year's workshops!  I keep meaning to post pictures, and will soon, but every time I go to do it, the camera is not where the computer is.

Vintage Vessels
I will be at Townsend Atelier in Chattanooga this weekend, with some fun classes, and there are a couple of spots left!  I would love to have you join me, and check out the awesome studio space Stan and Peggy Townsend have put together!  Click here for more info!

Vintage Vessels
Enjoy polymer clay in its finest hour by creating a one-of-a-kind box!  Delight in creating lovely faux-aged vessels to store the most precious of trinkets.   Learn how to use Knead-a-Mold to cast lovely old jewelry pieces  accented by hand rolled and textured forms.   Rubber stamps and metal paints give depth and dimension, while mild acidic washes allow us to enjoy the very best of “instant” aging. The resulting new pieces have very old souls.  Each student will receive a plentiful  materials kit.

Stamped & Stencilled Journals
These richly patterned journal  pages explode with color and visual depth. The binding technique is especially for pages to lie flat when opened.  Students will use stencils and stamps in a unique layering technique to create signatures and covers.  This journal is a treat to hold, and even more enjoyable to use! You’ll find the creation of the pages so much fun, I’ll have to stop you so we’ll have time to bind the journal!  The color and excitement on the pages will give you a great jumping off point and inspire your journaling every time you see it!  Each student will receive a plentiful materials kit

The Studio is comfortable and well equipped, with every luxury.  Spacious, with plenty of room to spread out and work, this well located studio has plenty of free parking!  Hope to see you there!
