Join us at BMS for a tropical escape during
Mermaid Magic in May
A short time ago, one of Carol's workshops featured a super fun and funky thimble and ribbon tassel that was made to decorate the spine of the book that was made that day. She knew it was a winner of an idea when one of the women exclaimed "It was totally worth the trip and the price of the workshop just to learn how to make these tassels!"
Hand made tassels are certainly not an original idea and if you search online you will find lots of different tassel ideas...anything from very simple yarn tassels to thimble and chain/charm tassels to an almost five hundred dollar ribbon, lace, and charm tassel attached to a handmade chain and bed necklace...yep! you did read that right :). What you will be creating is unique in its own way...featuring a thimble, a bead chain, and charms and a variety of ribbons, laces, and trims...all constructed and assembled in a fashion not previously seen online.
PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: Ruler, scissors, regular sewing needle and ivory thread, round needle nose pliers (for jewelry making), small wire cutters (for jewelry making), wet glue such as Helmar.
Please note there will not be a repeat of the tassel construction during the album workshop Saturday. Your tassels will coordinate with the album.
The Main Event!
Carol Wingert's Mermaid Magic Album
Saturday, May 18 - 9:00am to 4:00pm
The Album Workshop:
Carol Wingert is best known for her hand created, mixed-media albums filled with artful, yet practical and usable pages for a memory artist. In this workshop, you will learn how to make a pieced and stitched album she calls a "Zig-Zag-Zig" book.....a great structure to make over and over again! If you love a beach/ocean theme (and who doesn't, right?) you will adore this beautifully layered and dimensional book. If you love a touch of whimsy you will be charmed by the magical mermaid who inserts her shimmery self here and there throughout the pages. If you love mixed-media you will be delighted to create your layered and artful designs with papers, trims, wood, fabrics, paints, glitters, and shimmers. Give yourself an amazing day to:
*challenge yourself and expand your creative horizons
*enjoy the company of fellow artists
*create a beautiful piece of memory art you will enjoy for years to come
PLEASE BRING TO CLASS: pencil, eraser, ruler, scissors, bone folder, brayer, paper trimmer, paper piercer or awl, strong wet glue such as Helmar or Tacky, several (2-3) craft bristle brushes for paint, watercolor brush (1/2"-1" wide), foam brush for glue, small soft makeup brush, small stapler, crop a tile, needle with large eye (available at BMS), regular sewing needle and ivory thread.
NOTE: An hour break will be given for lunch (not provided)
