FRIDAY, OCTOBER 8th 7:00pm - 8:30pm
Demonstration on how to stain and color manila tags to make them look vintage and elegant. Joni will also demonstrate her technique on coloring dominoes that is easy and the end result is amazing. There is always a conversation about what is the best adhesive. Joni will share with you information about adhesives of all types. The demonstration is free of charge.

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 9th 10:00am - 3:00pm
In this class, you will be using Graphic 45 Alice and Halloween papers, trims, die cuts, charms, ribbons and Artful Illusion stamps to make this fun filled Halloween book. It will be great for adding pictures of your own to the pages. Learn to work with Glitter pens, Smooch and Tattered Angels Glimmer Mists to accent your pages. Bring scissors, glue stick or adhesive of your choice for adding trims and papers. ($55.00)

SATURDAY, OCTOBER 9th 4:30pm - 8:30pm
Start with some copper and silver sheets and wire; and finish with a one of a kind heart necklace. Learn to cut, file, shape and wire wrap, rivet, letter stamp and make a closure. You don't need any experience or knowledge of metals to make this project, but you will leave comfortable with your abilities. Bring round nose and chain nose pliers and flush cutters. We will have them available for purchase if you don't already have a set. ($35.00)

SUNDAY, OCTOBER 10th 11:00am - 3:00pm
Cut, file, and form copper tiles and apply image transfers. Combine with etched copper squares and connect with chunky jump rings. Finish out your bracelet with a doomed penny and wire wrap attaching charms and beads. If time allows, copper etching will be demonstrated. Bring scissors, round nose pliers and chain nose pliers (2 pair if you have them), flush cutters. If you do not have these tools, we will have them for sale. This is a beginner level class. ($40.00)
