Creative Crafting Classes....Coming soon!

The other day I spent a couple of hours at Bridgestone showing some ladies how to make bows and origami ornaments. We had a wonderful time. The conversation quickly turned to when we would do it again and all the things they would like to learn how to make.

For some time now I have been thinking of starting a "SIPS and STROKES" type class here in Warren and surrounding counties. For those of you unfamiliar with "SIPS and STROKES", it is where small groups of people get together and paint their own canvases in about a couple of hours. The only difference is I want to do more than just share my love of painting, I want to teach people how to do all sorts of arts and crafts. What fun...spending quality time with friends, laughing and having a wonderful evening creating not only a painting, or craft project, but a great memory. It also makes a great present. Instead of the usual kids birthday party, imagine giving them the gift of an art or crafting lesson, and a sentimental gift for everyone to take home and enjoy for years to come.

Here is how it works: I supply all the materials needed for your craft, come to your location, set up, and clean up, for a flat fee per person depending on the desired project. Paint, Canvas, brushes, easels, aprons, etc...all materials .are provided. I will have the canvas sketched out with your pre-chosen design, ready to be embellished however you choose, or with my help, as I will be in front of the group painting, creating, and directing, each step of the way.

Birthday parties, company team building outings, church groups, holiday crafting parties...any occasion you can imagine!

Some of the crafting sessions soon available: Rag Quilt in an afternoon, smocking, scrapbooking, sewing, and the list goes on and on!

More details coming soon.....
