The Class schedule dates have been announced for NHA’s Decorative Arts Sessions. This year my classes will be held the week of Aug. 15.
Monday – Wednesday, Aug 15-17 for the 3 day class. We will be concentrating on clean lines with spine shells and fancier flowers. For those that have the time I will add instructions to wire shells to enhance the floral leaves and border design. Learn to put holes in shells and wire the shells to create fancy leaf patterns. I will bring several sizes of shells to choose from.
Thursday, Aug 18 for the one day class completing a 6” valentine using a mandala pattern. Again there may be time to enhance your pattern with tiny flowers. See Photos.
