Creative Play Days!

Jewelry making classes?  You know I'd never share my secrets.

Classes in working with natural materials to create dimensionally fun "proud that I made this all by myself!" pieces.  You betcha!

Our first Creative Play Day of 2024!

We will be offering another Creative Play Day in the near future!  We'll be posting info soon!

Previous Creative Play Days!

Basket Coiling 

I've gotten a little bit better at making baskets.  I really enjoyed teaching basket making classes at the Studio, and at the Historic Heathsville Heritage Arts Center on the Historic Northern Neck, last year.  And I can't wait to do more...

Contact me if you'd like to pull a group of your friends together, set a date at the Studio, and let's make coiled baskets together!  I now have a lot more natural foraged materials and am more than anxious to share.  Drop me a note, or call me, if you have interest in a group of 4+.  We'll figure out the details, and pricing.  You'll take home a Coiled Basket that you made all by yourself, and we'll all have fun! 

You'll learn the basic technique of "coiling" which is the foundation of basket weaving.  I taught this class because I have really enjoyed foraging and basket making recently.  

Embroidery Class

Last Fall, we held an Embroidery Class at the Studiio.  Anne McCahill, who hails from France, is certified in botanical illustration and specializes in embroidery, taught the group.



We'll be holding more Creative Play Days! in the future, too.

Keep an eye out for more classes.  Grab a group of your friends and book an entire class!  I'd love for you to join us!
