Make a Journal out of Recycled Material
September 14th 2013
10:00- 3:00
We will reproduce a classic hard cover journal, a sturdy thread-bound book perfect for jotting notes down or sketching in.  Students will choose between the pocket size 3.5x5.5 and the large 5x8.25, learning the construction of the book from beginning to end.  We will work with repurposed material, making our book as sustainable as possible.

Make your own Stickers!
October 19th 2013
Ever wanted to get a message across and didn’t know how.  Well this class is for you.  Make your own message on a repurposed sticker.   I collect sticky paper, left over labels, packaging stickers and other sticky odds and ends, transform them into my own completely original stickers with a little paint and letraset letters.  The discarded sticker paper is sized and primed, all ready to receive your message.  Letraset is a dry rub transfer popular before computers became widespread, mainly used in architectural and product design projects.  Learn how to say anything that pops up in your head by burnishing the letraset on to the sticker paper.  Make as many as you can in an hour.  Anyone can do it and is fun for everyone.

Paper Mache Ghouls and Ghost Piñata                 
October 6th 2013
Just in time for Halloween, build your own ghoul or ghost.  Learn how to construct paper Mache piñatas that the whole family can enjoy.  We will work with plaster gauze and recycled newspaper to build your own holiday candy producing fun.  Great for the whole family, children must be accompanied by adult.

Christmas Card Making
November 23rd 2013
Design and make all your Christmas cards in this class.  I will teach you how to use long strips of paper repurposed from printers cut offs to easily make multiplies of a design. Using paint and recycled paper we can create cards that will wow your friends and family.  Learn to easily fold 8.5x11 paper into a blank card to fill with words of cheer. 

Decorative Frame           
December 7th 2012
Build a fun eclectic picture frame out of old magazines and a thrift store frame.  Colorful and environmentally friendly, the rolling and applying of magazines creates a fun surface that can jazz up any dull looking frame.  Everyone will take home a completed frame.   All supplies provided.
