We have 2 Awesome Classes coming up!

Soldered House Plaque

Have you thought about learning to solder?
This is a great class to learn basic soldering skills and for those of you who know how to solder it is a great class to hone your skills. Josie will show you soldering tricks she has learned through trial and error along the way. This class will touch on basic collage and composition techniques. For an alternative to the silver look of solder, Josie will show you how to use a solder patina.
This is a great project to showcase vintage family photos or for you pet lovers, it makes a great dog house. Josie will supply vintage photos and ephemera but she encourages you to bring some of your own color copied images. With the holidays around the corner, this project makes for a great gift. Supplies: Basic tool kit: most importantly a bone folder, tweezers, and vintage photos and ephemera. Bring a soldering iron with you, or you can rent one from Josie for $5.
The cost of this class is $55.00 and is on Saturday, October 13th 10:00 A.M. to 1:00 P.M.

Awaiting Halloween
In this class you will assemble a Halloween themed wall hanging made with a vintage transparency, fabric and papers.
We will dye our own tissue paper with Adirondack inks, age watercolor paper with Distress inks, and burn the edges of a transparency. (don't worry the fire extinguisher will be handy!) Everything will be sewn to a loosely woven piece of black fabric and you will add stars, spider, flower, and a witches hat. The cost of the class is $30 and is on Saturday, October 13th
2:00 P.M. to 4:00 P.M. and is taught by Judy Bidwell.

There are only a couple of spots left in each of these classes, so call us to sign up ASAP!
