Friday, Feb. 3< /span> - Passionate Declaration with Kelly Kilmer from 11:30 - 3;30. Cost is $70.00. What do you get when you combine paper, tape, pens, and more? A completely one of a kind journal made by your own hands! We’ll begin the workshop by constructing a quick but totally cool journal. We’ll then dive right in and begin to learn a plethora of mixed media collage techniques upon the pages of the journal. We’re all about the layers in this class as you learn explore new composition and design techniques as you work on the pages of your new journal. I guarantee that you will love working in this book as much as I did!

Supply list: Scissors, small selection of favorite collage ephemera, bone folder, cork back metal ruler, roll of waxed paper, roll of paper towels, permanent black inkpad, container to hold water, 1" brushes to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes), a few of your favorite glue sticks.
Friday, Feb 3 - Cardmaking Night from 6:30 - 8:30. Come on in and we will have a fun time making a card.

Sunday, Feb 5 - Jewelry Etching Class with Ruth Shapiro, 12:30-4:30. Cost is $70.  Ruth Shapiro will be doing a Jewelry etching class, the information is following: Metal etching is an easy way to add texture, words, and pictures to a piece of metal. In this introductory workshop, learn how to etch on copper and brass. The workshop will include a handout and all supplies and materials and pre-cut copper/brass shapes that can be used to make a finished piece or save as samples. Etched pieces can be used to make jewelry, book plates, frames, etc. No experience with metal working is necessary. You should plan to have fun and get messy! Please wear old clothes and/or an apron, and wear closed- toe shoes in case of spills. If you need magnifiers for close-up work, please bring them along. If you have a favorite rubber stamp, bring that, too. Please note that this is a technique that you will definitely be able to duplicate at home with a very minimal amount of tools and supplies.
