Altered Tin Angel – we will be creating our assemblage angels with a vintage tin box for the base, adding a scene inside, wiring on arms and legs, and choosing a face from vintage images (or bring a photo from home!).

Mannequin Trees – getting into a festive mood, here is a fun mannequin tree for your holiday displays! We start with a papermache form cut in half, an old book as the base, layering corrugated cardboard, burlap, tulle, tissue papers, book pages, fibers, tinsel and more on a dowel to form the “tree”. Topping it off with the mannequin top and a china doll head, we’ll add some more fibers and a little sparkle. We’ll create a mini garland with letter stamps to spell a seasonal greeting to embellish our “trees”. Class fee $45, includes supplies
