$ 85  

What’s your particular palette? Are you a muted, soft-hues sort of artisan or a full-spectrum, rainbow warrior? We will deconstruct a paint brush and then perform a make-over with a riot of color and texture. Yarns, ribbons, shredded fabrics, wire and beads, ephemera, and found objects will replace boring bristles, transforming the brush into a whimsical showpiece. Hidden treasures can be added to complement your personal style.

Materials Fee $20 Includes the following:
I will provide everything needed to complete the project including a paint brush, gobs of yarn and ribbon, fabric to strip, paint, matte medium, glue, wire, decorative papers, and an assortment of eclectic ephemera to suspend within the yarns (and chocolate!).
I will have to tools on hand to share in class including pliers, scissors, paint brushes and heat guns.

I will also have some optional specialty items and vintage treasures for purchase.

Supplies Needed for Class: An art apron and a sense of adventure.

Optional items: If you have any special artifacts or treasures you’d like to incorporate into your project, bring them along and we’ll try to attach them.

Most of the required supplies for your classes can be pre-ordered from Collage. They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat. For further info and to place your order, contact:
