New Jewelry in!

Oh Goodness! We just got some really fabulous jewelry in from the local jewelry artist, AEB Design. These are delighfully springy in reclaimed sterling and fine silver, pressed glass (in luscious colors) and fresh water pearls. Besides the fact they are made locally, they range in price from $15-$35! Elegantly simple, they would complement any outfit.

Paper Making workshop with Lisa Danger

For our wedding, my husband, Gabe, and I made our own invitations, paper and all. The paper, which was made using recycled materials, was dotted with little flecks of dried flowers from a bouquet he had given me for Valentine's Day a few months prior.

One of my best friends' dad, who attended the big day, had worked at a paper mill for about 40 years but had never seen "handmade" paper and was so impressed with craftiness.

On Saturday, April 16 at 3:30 p.m., Lisa Danger (one of the featured artists at Larkmartin & Co.) is teaching the Art of Paper Making and Up-Cycling at the Artchurch Studio, 301 Whittington Ave. A free, one-hour workshop, it is open to all ages and will teach the basics of the paper making.

In addition to the workshop, Lisa will be offering a paper making class on Saturday afternoons from 3-4:30 p.m. The class, which begins May 7, is $75 for Artchurch members per month or $90 for non-members and includes all basic materials.

Class size is limited so sign up early!

For more information and to register call the Artchurch Studios at 501.463.9890
