Welcome to my March craft classes schedule.
We have great fun on Wednesdays, 1:30-4:30ish in my craft room @ 592 Deer Trail, Pagosa.
I hope that you’ll join us! Come, play and learn!
March 4 – Gel Medium Image Transfer
In search for something different for our craft classes, I discovered image transfers. After trial and error, I’ve chosen the process of adhering a reverse-laser print on salvaged wood. Come, play and learn! $20.
March 11 – “Memories” Collage
Using embossed paper, a salvaged mini cutting board (thanks to Donna!), antique lace, buttons, hair pins, and 2×3″picture, you’ll combine all of this to make a very striking piece. Come, play and learn! $20.
March 18 – “Found Art” Assemblage
With your own bead-filled pea pod (easy to make/see to believe!), you’ll assemble lace, a key, a wooden spoon, buttons, etc. on a raised platform. Come, play and learn!
March 25 – Flute Case Shadow Box
Named this simply because the shape reminds me of my old flute case… The open wooden ‘case’ will be divided into seven sections that you’ll fill with your important this-and-that’s. It’ll be topped off with a screen door handle and homespun bow. $20.
Crafters, I am DYING to host our sixth CPR! Let me tell you about it …

September 3 – Games We Played
Even though we enjoyed making this project in January, crafters have requested a repeat!
With a cigar box as the substrate, we’ll add vintage game pieces, photo, etc. This is truly a project that will
take us down memory lane! Bring any ephemera that will add to this project. $20.

August 8 – Letter Box (“Keep It” Box)
Susan suggested this project, and we’re lapping it up!
Using a very popular paper (see above) or your choice, we’ll decoupage a cigar box,
add real pleated ribbon, antique brass feet, etc. will result in a special box. $20.
August 13 – “Star of My Life” Rusty Pickle Kit
Another kit … we love ’em! I will supplement his papers

Have you own title in mind. $20.

August 20 – Travel (or whatever) Shadow Box
Have in mind a theme/title, then you’ll select your box before using

such, are rocks, a chunk of bark, embroidery thread, etc.) $20.
