Join us as we feature a product/technique and offer you a hands-on opportunity. We begin with a thorough instructional demonstration, and then you get to play! These Thursday evening sessions, once a month from 6:30 to 8:30 pm, have resulted lots of laughs, bonding and wonderful sample art!
A $10.00 registration fee per session includes light refreshments, tags, and full use of provided products, tools and materials. Come to each session, or choose what fits into your schedule.
Prepaid and online reservations are preferred so that we can prepare, but we will accomodate walk-ins whenever possible. (Seating space is limited, so if it becomes necessary priority will be given to those who have registered online in advance).
“I appreciate the How do I Use This? classes because you get to learn a variety of techniques in a short time, and can sample the product before purchasing it.”
— Judy Albert
Each month we use both paper and fabric to create samples, often incorporating them onto provided tags. Many students bring notebooks, or if desired, participants can jot notes on the reverse of the tags of what products were used and how to recreate the technique. Those who have attended several sessions can end up with the colorful makings of a tag book to creatively document ideas and inspirations! We also encourage those who art journal to bring their books to work in.
