We are diving right into summer! AdaLee and I will at Bead Island in our town of Murrieta (26145 Jefferson Avenue) for three weeks of kid classes. Open to ages 8 through 14 from 9 am to 11:30 am. and if you don't mind some cleaning up around you, bring your lunch to nibble on after class! Moms you can stay and play if you would like to but you don't have to. (We'll keep everyone busy until you get back!)
Next week, Tuesday 6/28 through Thursday 6/30, that gal up there and I will be creating tons of different things with paper! Origami, paper beads and all things floral.
For Tuesday July 12 through Thursday July 14 we are getting out the polymer clay! For those who haven't played with this clay before it is a plastic, non-toxic, bake in your own oven clay! That means you can make all kinds of goodies with it! Beads, mini-sculptures, game pieces (think personalized checkers or creature chess pieces!), use your imagination freely!
Our last week, Tuesday July 19 through Thursday July 21, must include my personal favorites! Magnetic bottlecaps, as decoration and jewelry, and all kinds of shrink plastic! Yay!
Please contact the shop at 951.461.1071 to reserve a spot or take a trip over there to see all our samples. (bottlecap samples are hiding for another week or so!)
In addition to our kid class schedule I do have one day of "big" kid class this weekend. Saturday June 25th we will play together in my "Addiction to Shrink Plastic" class in the morning then more good stuff with "Intro to Resin" in the afternoon. Also held at Bead Island right here in town!
One last thing...I want to share what's on my desk this week and it's all things Alice.
Currently I am working to have as much inventory as I can for a mixed media show in Phoenix, Arizona (yes, I'm travelling out of state!!!) With any luck (and a strong wind) my table will have a ton of Alice, Oz, and various other fairytale characters. Keep your fingers crossed!
Until next time,
