So we can finally let you know that the Adorn Me! website is up and running! Hurry on over to see the fabulous workshop offerings for this jewelry-only event hostessed by Linda Young of Art Unraveled fame. This event will take place March 2-7 2010, in Houston, TX. The line-up for instructors is stellar and includes Keith LoBue, Thomas Mann, Deryn Mentock, Sherri Haab, Richard Salley, Amy Hanna, Diana Frey, Diane Cook, Melissa Manley and many others! I am planning on taking a few classes myself!
I will be teaching a NEW class, Pixie Pins! Are you tired of the pixie thing yet? I am certainly not! These are Lazer-Tran images baked onto metal and accented with all sorts of fun accessories that are attached with various cold connections. I made one batch of these pins back in 2003 to sell at Art Continuum and I sold out on vendor night! If I may say, Tim Holtz had to have one and Thomas Mann purchased one for his mother. I have not made any since, but I might have a few for vendor night, wink! I think this class will be lots of fun, so come join me next March!
I was also invited to teach my Butterfly Boxes class in Houston, TX this November on Saturday, the 21st, at the Houston Center for Contemporary Craft. If you haven’t visited the Center, I highly recommend it! They usually have a spectacular ongoing exhibition, along with working artists’ spaces and a great gallery, The Asher Gallery…which will be carrying some of my Perching Pixies this October!
And another note: Art and Soul in Hampton, VA 2010 has MOVED up their online registration opening to September 13 from October 13, so make sure and check out the website and make your decisions! I hope to see you there!
