Over the years, I've gotten many requests to repeat a certain class or project...but it's really rare for me to do that.
There is one project, however, that keeps coming up in discussions and emails. I can't tell you how many times I've heard someone say, "Are you ever going to do that Betwinchie Canvas class again?". Well, I'm here to announce "YES, I AM!".
This is a project that I absolutely love and judging by the number of canvasses I've seen displayed in the homes of friends, family and people who took the original workshop, I'm guessing that they love theirs, too! That's the reason I decided to teach this again...and with a new sample too!
On Saturday, May 19th, from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., I'll be teaching this project in a boutique workshop at my home...and I'm so excited about it.
If this is the first time you've heard about this project, you are probably wondering what in the world is a Betwinchie! Maybe you've heard of "inchies" or "twinchies", 1" and 2" squares on which collages are created. Since this canvas features squares that are one and a half inches, I coined the term "betwinchie"! Fun, isn't it?
Here's what the new betwinchie canvas looks like:
The sample is created in black and cream...a bit shabby with a definite vintage feel.
Your project will have a black and cream base as well. There's a variety of papers (which vary from kit to kit), embellishments, vintage trims and ribbons, printed "small words", stamped images and some cool techniques to produce your own embellies.
But, what makes this a boutique workshop is that you will be able to personalize your betwinchie canvas by adding an accent color! After you sign up for the workshop, I'll email you and ask you which color you want to add to your project...red, aqua, brown or pink! I will then prepare an additional packet of fabrics, papers and embellishments which feature your chosen accent color. If you want to stick with black and cream, I'll add more papers and dimensional items so that you can personalize yours as well.
And, after you have embellished to your heart's desire, simply add some tiny pictures and you have a wonderful piece of memory art that you will be so proud to display.
The possibilities for themes are endless...you can feature your entire family, or maybe just one child or grandchild per canvas. You can highlight tiny pictures from a recent trip, or some garden shots, or even favorite quotes or verses.
It's going to be a fun day, for sure! Six hours of creative bliss in a really small workshop setting, with snacks, drinks and lunch included, a loaded kit with a 16x20" canvas, papers, hardware, wood appliques, embellishments and even a beautiful and shabby display easel.
