Open Studio Time
Class Max:  4
Length:  Dependent on your group size/needs
Class Fee:  $20/hour per person

Schedule some time in my personal studio for you and some friends!  You will have unlimited access to my expertise, my tools (Cricut, Sizzix, etc.), and certain consumable supplies such as ribbon (depending on your needs).  When you schedule your time, we will discuss the needs of your group so that I can tailor the space to you before you arrive.  I will also provide some snacks and beverages, and you are welcome to bring your own, as well.  This opportunity is offered on a VERY limited basis, so please plan to book at least 2 weeks in advance.

Altered Home Décor 101
Class Max:  4
Length:  3-5 hours
Class Fee:  $50/person

Participants will learn a variety of ways to alter existing items to update and reuse seemingly useless items everyone has in their home.  Don’t just give away something because your style has changed!  Update it with paint, graphics, paper, fabric, or a host of other craft resources.  A basic picture frame is needed for this class.  Please bring one from home, or purchase one from a thrift store or dollar store.  Frames should be about 8X10 and have glass.  A frame can be provided to you at an additional cost.  All other materials are included in the class fee.
