New Artful Workshops:

I have a series of great workshops coming up this year and next, at the Newark Museum, Summit Visual Arts Center both in NJ, CHA in CA and Zne Convention in Pleasanton, CA in Mid April-May, and several other workshops currently being scheduled, check my blog often for dates and times, not to mention some book signings in early winter with the release of my new art book: Altered Art Circus by Quarry Books!

I am teaching a new workshop at the Summit Visual Arts Center, located in Summit, NJ minutes from the train station, from 10am-4pm called:
Bewitching Welsh Witches Hats and Tea Party. All students will learn to make their own welsh style witches hat from scratch and relax with some tea and scrumptious treats.

I will post some hat examples this week one is a shabby chic pink toned hat, the other a gothic vamp style..But you can make whatever you want!

Below is the class description on the Summit Visual Arts Center Site/Brochure:

"Augusta Hall, Baroness Llanover is best known as a patron of the Arts in Wales. Her interest in costume led her to create the design of the Welsh national costume. A typical Welsh hat from her era is similar to the witch hat. In this class, escape to Wales for a true artful event, create your own boutique chic witch hat from elegant fabrics, trims, organza, flowers, birds and more. Learn basic sewing, hat design and millinery concepts. Whether you are attending a costume ball, giving away tricks or treats, or having a tea with friends, this class is perfect for you."

How I wish I lived nearby so that I could attend one of your workshops. I do have so many friends in New Jersey, I lived in Princeton for ten years. I'm thinking that I will keep track of your workshops, and maybe when I visit I could attend one while I'm visiting. Karen

Wonderful Karen,
I love the Princeton Area, my dear friend owned a tea room there for many years called: Sally Lunns, now
she just keeps the one in Chester, NJ, by my house!
When you come to NJ let me know!
Hugs!
Lisa!
