Decoupage—from the French word découper, meaning to cut out— is a fun and easy way to decorate just about any object. The process entails pasting varied shapes of paper to an object and then covering them with several coats of lacquer. The result is depth and patterns that look as though they are actually painted on the decoupaged object. Together we will create a picture frame (approximately 4×6-inches) using a selection of colored papers. Once you learn this fun and easy way to decorate just about any object, you won’t be able to stop. Get a head start on your handmade holiday gifts! A $12 materials fee is payable to instructor at class.
In May, one of Jess’s handmade cards appeared in Martha Stewart Living magazine, so we are not fooling around when we say that she is a local gem. Come join her for an evening of handmade fun. In time for the holidays, learn to create cards that express your creativity by using rubber stamps, embossing powder, paper punches and more. Once you learn how simple and pleasurable it is to make your own cards, you’ll never again settle for store-bought. We will make at least two cards each. A $10 materials fee is payable to instructor at class.
You spend so much time and energy finding just the right gifts for the holiday season, it’s only right to wrap them in something equally personal. You’ll be delighted with how fun, easy and satisfying it is to make your own gift wrap and gift tags. We will focus on holiday-themed paper and tags, but once you learn the process, you’ll be able to continue the fun at home for any occasion. A $10 materials fee is payable to instructor at class.
