Kari McKnight Holbrook Classes


Projects by Kari McKnight HolbrookWe had the opportunity to book Kari McKnight-Holbrook on July 14, 15 & 16, with three different classes! An award-winning mixed media artist and nationally known art instructor, Kari will visit Artistic Artifacts, hosting a “creativity stay-cation” with door prizes, workshop kits including unique supplies and printed workbooks, and the use of her tools to complete all projects:

  • Vintage Vessels (create a lovely faux-aged vessel with a very old soul)
  • No Sew Journal (you’ll leave with a completely bound journal that’s richly patterned, lavishly colored and chock full of collage, transfers and embellishments)
  • Moodlings (sweet or sarcastic — you decide which moodling to unleash with texture mediums, crackle paints, paperclay and more)

Exclusive to our enewsletter subscribers, we’re offering discounts: $10 off one class, $20 off two, and $30 off all three classes! Please register online as normal, and email us your name and to let us know you’ve registered, and we will apply the discount as we process your payment (note that it will not show in your basket as you checkout). If you prefer not to use our online system, you may also contact us to register.

Upcoming classes at Artistic ArtifactsIn addition to Kari’s classes mentioned above, we’ve got a wide variety of workshops — fun and creative fiber, mixed media and jewelry classes — planned through the summer and into the fall. It’s not too late to register for this weekend’s classes:

Coming next week are Beginning Bag Class: “Half Moon” Bag with Bette Rudgers on July 10 (an evening class ideal for beginning sewers) and Marbling on Fabric with Linda Cooper on July 12. Please check our website frequently as we continue to update our schedule with offerings like our Christmas in July classes — beat the summer heat dreaming of snowflakes!


Custom Classes & Workshops

If you’re interested in our workshops but can’t make the scheduled dates, we are happy to arrange a custom class — gather five (or more) friends and we’ll set it up!

Lace challenge quilt detail by Elizabeth WoodfordThose in the Virginia, DC and Maryland area, or who will be visiting this summer, are invited to join us at Artistic Artifacts Annex for the debut of our Arts & Old Lace quilt challenge exhibit! You’re invited to the Opening Artist’s Reception, Saturday, July 21 from 2:00 – 8:00 pm — plan to join us! The exhibit also will be available for viewing during regular shop hours until September 30. All the quilts are kept under wraps until then, but to tempt you, here’s a detail of artist (and frequent Artistic Artifacts workshop instructor) Elizabeth Woodford’s submission!
