Announcing Sally Jean Spring 2013 San Diego Classes
March 13-15, 2013
I sat down with Sally before she left to brave that superstorm known as Hurricane Sandy. She came up with two amazing classes for your artful instruction in March. I have seen the samples and I cannot wait to make these beautiful projects. We are only offering two classes this time a one day class and a two day class. Read the descriptions below and sign up quickly to come and play with us!
Is the Jackalope a myth? Or a legend? Or just a creature who lurks in
nightmares? On this day, the dream of the Jackalope comes true! We will
construct a small journal from metal and glass, with pages for sketching or
biology notes, and adorned on the face with a...Jackalope! (Did I mention the
Jackalope can be detatched and worn as a pendant?) New techniques you will
discover include a way to emboss/engrave/etch your solder and how to create a
shapely soldered decoration to your glass, and more. Soldering experience a
must. I believe...do you? It's almost taxidermy...but not.
Glass Kit, Book
Form, and Jackalope Kit included.
DEAD BUG SOCIETY
~ Thursday & Friday...March 14 & 15, 2013 ~
This Workshops has sent me over the moon! I am crazy for it! In this special
2-day Workshop we will be creating our own Entomology Specimen Box. Don't run
away! In "girly" terms, it is a box containing a Butterfly, Moth, Bee and
Dragonfly...but not your average bugs. These bugs will be made out of glass,
paper, wire, fabric, jewels, found objects, etc. Even better, each will be a
pendant/brooch which you can wear, and then keep in your special "Butterfly Box"
which we will also build. There are four different techniques for creating your
"bugs", and you will learn each one as well as how to make an easy-opening box
to hang & display your Collection. If there is extra time, we can make a
necklace which the Bugs can hang from. You supply butterfly net &
bee-keepers hat. Glass Kit & Box Form included. Finished box 6"x6" to
8"x10". Bugs are a few inches each. Soldering experience a must. 2-days
