Where Bloggers Create party

Welcome to the annual
Where Bloggers Create party!


I'm so thrilled to be taking part in Karen Valentine's 
"Where Bloggers Create 2015".  Karen designed my blog many moons ago, and my other blog e-workshops, and does such a lovely job.

So this time I decided to post a little video of my workshop. It is as cleaned up as I could get it! I'm in full production mode right now, so sorry about the mess. But I hope you enjoy the video tour. I wanted to give you a glimpse of my stations, and treasures I work with.






Thanks for visiting!!!
I'm going to try to get around and see many other studios listed on Karen's list.
Have a great day, and I hope to see you at a workshop I'm teaching somewhere!

Hugs,
Riki

Artful Gathering 2015 workshop

It's time to get registered for 
ARTFUL GATHERING 2015!

My all new workshop starts on June 6, and I would love for you to join me.

This year, something completely new and different. I am going to show you how to make Mixed Media Music Boxes in Musical Delights.

Six full weeks of fun with me, can you stand it? These are so much fun, inexpensive and amazingly beautiful. I am thrilled to show you how, all on line.

So please get registered, get your supplies, and lets make some beautiful music together!!

Musical Delights: Mixed Media Music BoxesJune 6 - July 17
Join me for a fabulous workshop that is a feast for the eyes and ears! In Musical Delights: Mixed Media Music Boxes, you get to make a music box from almost scratch because you will start with a pre-made box from tin or from a simple cigar box. Yes! You will decorate it up while learning a wide variety of mixed media art techniques before installing a musical movement. These boxes will make your heart sing with delight and your finished work of art will be a treasure forever to enjoy.

Vivi Magoo Art Retreat in the Desert!

I'll be teaching three amazing workshops, if I do say so!! These are full day projects, and so much fun to make and then enjoy.

The Tab Please

Another example of The Tab Please
 In this workshop I will be showing you how to custom make your tabs for a cabochon, an antique brooch or anything flat on the back really.


Queen's Lace
A touch of solder, some metal work, a little resin, and you have an amazing focal for your necklace.


Timeless Beauty
 We will be making custom watch bands from scratch! I'm bringing the watches and you provide the workmanship. So excited.

Here is the link for the retreat so you can read all about it.
Hope you can make it, did I mention the International Gem Show happens the same weekend? Bring some cash and some walking shoes, it is amazing!
