Another all new, hybrid Live / Online workshop offered via private Facebook group with Gwen Lafleur! The live portion of the class will be held on Saturday, December 5, 2020 from 1:00 –3:30pm Eastern time. Ornaments and Amulets is an online class teaching you how to combine fabric, embellishments, dimensional collage techniques and more to create a unique array of small artworks. Each of these small works of art can be used for décor, journal covers, statement jewelry, and more! Each of the projects in the course will have samples of a holiday and an everyday version so that you can see how the pieces can be adapted to both your personal style and how you want to use them. Students will create three types of ornaments or amulets as well as learning how to create their own handmade beads to use in class for their projects.
There will be two videos: a pre-class demo (live and then archived in the group) as well as the live class video on December 5, for a total of more than four hours of instruction and demonstration. Requirements: You must have a Facebook account so we can admit you to the private Facebook classroom.* Visit Gwen Lafleur’s website for a complete description of this class, other administrative details, FAQs and lots more gorgeous photo examples!
