Leaf Stencils & Organic Materials – Nature lover’s, this is for you! Use fresh leaves to create stencils and embed organic materials, beach combings and found natural matter into your wax.

Wax Pendulum – Don’t let it be said that I don’t share my toys! Yup, that’s right, you too can swing, push and propel the wax pendulum and create your own spirographic piece.


Cracking into the Gallery Scene – So you want gallery representation but you don’t know where to begin… Which gallery? Where? How? What if they say “no”? This session will offer a methodical game plan and a way to approach a gallerist with dignity.
