shall we go, you and I, while we can?

Treat yourself to a fabulous event filled with creativity and friendship. Below are some photos of the workshops I will be teaching at Art Is You - Taking Tea with Alice, in Cromwell CT in October

Whimsical, unique charms in a snap! We will create a whole bunch o’ charms, adding paint, paper, found objects & fibers. The charms are perfect for jewelry or extra bling on cards, collage, art dolls & more. Easy-peasy, lemon-squeezy!

Dust off that forlorn & forgotten dolly or teddy and create an amazing 3-dimensional shrine! Adding paint, paper, found objects & fibers, we will play with scale & proportion as we push the boundaries in this sculptural project.

Cloth Baby Book Purse - The easiest purse you’ll ever make! We will take discarded soft cloth baby books and create easy-sew purses. Each cloth book is slightly different – they come in many shapes - but this makes each handbag unique. We will explore the varied looks you can achieve with this technique, as we deconstruct and sew into charming handbags. Adding bits & bobs, fun fibers and a funky handle complete the look.

YUMMY! We will create a whimsical cupcake pincushion in a vintage tin – no sewing required. No cupcake would be complete without the toppings – go nutty with paint, glitter, sequins, beads & baubles to create fabulously funky pins. This project can be created to be soft & shabby or with juicy, saturated colors - whatever your mood. The perfect sweet addition to your studio or sewing room!

In this class we will make two secret book shrines. Use this little book as a secret shadowbox, to store your fave ATCs or treasured trinkets, as a gift, etc. The possibilities are endless when adding your favorite small 3D collage elements. Super sweet & simple to make!

I was so delighted to be asked to host the Coronation of Alice - a very special evening event for Full Conference registrees.
Perhaps you are a bit demure…or maybe you boldly declare, “I am Queen”…in this class we will embark into a fantasy world where teacups are hats (or are the hats teacups?). Adding paint, paper & embellishments we will create whimsical, wearable altered sculptures.

Are you Alice, a Queen of Hearts, a Mad Hatter, Cheshire Cat, or Jabberwock?
