Marie's Peek-a-BOO theater workshop at K.Marie

A Very BOOtiful workshop in the Glittery Room at K.Marie!!

If you are in the Oregon or Washington area please come and PLAY!!! I am oh so blessed to be teaching a unique soldered art wine glass theater, with a Marie Antoinette and harlequin theme in the Glittery Room at K.Marie in historic downtown Milwaukie June 28th 9am to 4pm!  June classes are Halloween themed and July will be Christmas!! That's a way to get a jump on things!! Ooooh and please scroll down and see the the delightful project the lovely Christy Meyers will be teaching that weekend also! Oooh La La! What fun we will have!!!!

I will teach you how to solder a wine glass to your base, install lights and attach your jumprings with glorious real crystals and "BOO" Harlequin shaped glass with jumprings!

Most supplies are included! You will need to provide a roll of lead free solder, a small vintage "sparkly" piece. I used an old rhinestone earring and cut the post off, easy peasy! Also, please bring some lights (Any mini set of lights will do) I used Darice brand "Moon Lights" 

We are going to have a "Spooktacular" time! 
To sign up for this workshop please contact:  Kelly Keehner in the Glittery Room at K.Marie  

"Glittery Fee" is $95.00 and will be from 9am to 4pm Saturday June 28th! Space is very limited and beginners are enthusiastically welcome!! I prefer to keep my workshop sizes to a minimum to insure that each student leaves with a finished piece and personal 1 on 1 time with me.
We will have to put some "pep in our step" with 7 hours finishing time but, every little thing is gonna be alright! (Bob Marley said so) :) 

That VERY weekend my most talented friend Christy Meyers will also be in the Glittery Room teaching her sweet sculpted Pumpkin man as well! Sculpting will begin Friday the 27th and you will finish up this little darlin' on Sunday the 29th!! Make a weekend of it!! XOXO Melissa

 Isn't he just the "cat's pajamas??"

Upcoming Class at K.Marie! Phew, it has been awhile!

Oh my goodness, I almost didn't remember my sign on! Good thing it is the same as my Gmail account!!

Where has the time gone?? (Don't answer that!!)

Well, thankfully I have been creating!! The lovely ladies of K.Marie wanted a simple soldered pendant class so, that is what they are getting!! 

Please join us at K.Marie in Milwaukie, Oregon May 17th for your choice of ONE or TWO different workshops! 

Either class is wonderful for beginners! You may make the Pretty Parisian Pendants and/or the 
"Mon Cherie" Mini shrine an homage to Kelli's sweet Mama... Kelli purchased a piece very similar for her Mom and it is one of the many lovely things that Kelli treasures in her beautiful store and studio!

Oh it will be so much fun and I am brewing up a very special Halloween project for June and Christmas in July at K.Marie!! If you would like more information on classes please go to the K.Marie site and sign up! I would love for you to join my mailing list, won't you click the link from the top of my page? 
I hope to see you there! I was very blessed and so grateful that a little birdie told Kelli that I was local and would most likely be willing to teach soldering classes at K.Marie! It has been a blast ever since! I love to teach and share, I was lucky enough to learn the art and develop a lovely friendship from Terri Brush  Don't miss Terri's Art Camp if you are in the Oregon or Washington area!

I hope to see you at K.Marie May 17th! While you are in the area, check out her sister Kimmi's store Enchante' and you will be in for a TREAT! (In more ways than one!!!) 

XOXO~ I promise it wont be so long between my posts! I just can't believe it!!
