Virginia Beach 2018 Registration is NOW OPEN

VA232 - Mindful Offerings

Anni Schwabe
9:00 - 4:30
Monday October 1

[back to quicklinks]
$ 150  

We will be using only elements from the Earth (gypsum, clay, rust, metal, wood and tea bags to name a few) to create our own ‘Offerings’ wall hanging.

We will learn to make 3-D items out of plaster wrap. In my samples, a moon, a leaf, a boat, a platter, a medallion, a door that opens and other elements are all 3-D items we will make in this class.  We all need to become more ‘mindful’ when it comes to the environment that naturally surrounds us. I have devoted over twenty-five years (and counting) to conservation and it is with this mindset that I created this class. Bring your own mindful ideas but leave your carbon footprint at home.

Supply Fee- $10.00 payable to instructor at beginning of class includes:
Mold making supplies, hemp and other fibers, dowel rods, beads, thread, hole punch, eyelets/tools, paint, tea bags

Please bring to class: a package of plaster wrap (available at craft stores). Any small, light natural elements (feathers, shells, small acorns, seeds etc.), watercolor and brushes, an awl, an eyelet setter if you have one, scissors
Optional: Small beads, a stick from nature, about 12” long, 1/2” around, and an apron to protect clothing from wet plaster.
