Fall is almost here!!!
This is my favorite time of year, happy Fall everyone. I only wish I could still smell the burning leaves as we did when I was young. Now you’d need a permit and it’s rarely done, but back in the old days, that was a sure sign of Autumn!
My big news is that I’m offering sculpting classes in Paperclay. This is a medium I feel very comfortable teaching as I’ve made many a Christmas ornament for my 9 years of “theme” trees at Concord Museum’s Family Trees Exhibit. I thought I would start with a Hummingbird Christmas ornament, and I am running 2 workshops in November at my home studio. November 4th and the 11th, both Saturdays. It is for beginners. Students will leave with a completed ornament, the workshop is 4 hours with a break for tea/coffee and scones. Each workshop will run from 1pm to 5pm and the cost is $65.00. The workshops are for students 18 or older as it’s too long day for a younger person. I am open to teaching anyone privately, please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for details.
On the racks there is a new Anniversary, Thank You, Birthday, Halloween and Thoreau Card. On the drawing board is a Birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas, Wedding, New Baby, and Catattitude. Full speed ahead!!
My Redro cat toys have been selling very well at Verrill Farm in West Concord. They are now also available at Chip-in-Farm in Bedford, MA. A new design is also coming.
