I have a couple of fun events planned for this weekend. On Saturday at C.Andrews studio its Altoid tin shrine time! People ask me to teach this class over and over again because lets face it : Altoid tins are just cool. I still have a couple of spots left in class why not come down and let me show you one way to turn these everyday tins into a piece of art that is uniquely your own!
On Sunday Patt Sheldon and I will be at the Princeton farmer's market. For any of you that don't know Patt she makes prize winning jewelry and she also weaves and knits incredible fiber creations. I will be there with cards,shrink art,assemblage and my mini canvas collages. We will be inside the mall so come on down and say hello. There will be many other local artists as well offering unique creations. Outside local farmers will be selling produce and other yummies.
Saturday June 16th
Class: Altoid Tin ShrinesDescription: Ever want to keep someone or something special close to your heart? How about that small very precious gift? Does it need a special place all its own? How about creating shrines to hold these special memories or gifts? In this class using collage and assemblage we will create these special places inside altoid tins. Your shrine can then be slipped into a pocket or purse to keep close to you at all times. Or it can be placed on a shelf as a special keepsake. Pocket Shrines also make great gifts to give to a loved one.
Items to bring: Scissors, Paintbrushes, any special items small enough to fit into an altoid tin.
Time: 10:30 to 2:30 Lunch break at 12:30
