New July Classes

Standard

I’ve added a few twists on some techniques we’ve taught before and some outright new classes to the July lineup.  This is just a sampling of the classes offered….

Check these out…

transfertiles

I call this class “Transfer Tiles”  Taking an image you transfer onto a 4×4 tile using caulking as your transfer medium, you then cover the tile with epoxy resin. Click here to register for class.

Next…

metalcover

This is a hand embossed piece using the Ten Seconds Studio tools and texture plates.  You can turn your piece into a book cover, cover a cigar box or use it as a stand alone piece of art.  Click here to register.

And…a new take on an old technique

This class is titled:  Soldering 101 and Beyond.  If you have experience with a soldering tool then take it to the next level by working with different materials as you tape up game tiles, sea glass, buttons and more.  Make your own charms for a bracelet or chunky pieces for artful jewelry.  Click here to register

The Metal Sampler class has a new look…

Working on copper and using embossing plates and the die cut machine you will crank this piece of art out (literally)  Using a solution you will add an instant patina to the copper.  Click here to register.

Making a re-apperance…

When Lisa Guerin was here in June we were totally inspired by her art!  We’ve taken her butterfly pendants and added our saucy pinup girls to larger than life book plates to make these…

One of the questions I get all the time about previous book club sessions…”Are you teaching that again?”

And, there is more to come…..I’ve got more work to do to get some samples for pictures…stay tuned…

And a sincere thank you for supporting A Work of Heart Studio.  It means the world to me that you continue to come in and take classes.  That is how I pay my overhead.  I know Christina appreciates your store purchases as that is what pays her overhead for Scrap Lovers.  We both appreciate your continued support that helps us keep our respective doors open.

Have a great week!!

Building a Crafty Community

Standard

Our mission here is to build a community of like-minded creatives.

If you see the potential in the things we have collected here, if it inspires a spark inside of you…we want you to join our community. You need to be here, we need you here, the creative community will be better with your active participation.

How do we go about this? That is where YOU come in. We can do all the legwork imaginable but the community isn’t about us, it is about YOU. We listen when you tell us what is inspiring to you, we ask who you follow, we encourage “outside-the-box” thinking (relish it even!) Following those cues we have scheduled outside instructors, artists and authors to come, teach and inspire.

The growth of our community through inspiring instruction is an exciting thing.

Here is the list for the next several months:
