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.

So we all join up and go shopping on Thursday, then play making projects Friday, Saturday and Sunday. Come earlier if you can to shop longer. Make new friends, we have a lot of repeat students.

Romantic Relic Frames

Learn how to make a frame from scratch, for a loved one, favorite pet, or a dear friend.  Read all about the details on the Artful Gathering blog.  


I will help you choose the right torch for you in this workshop. I demonstrate the operation, set up and fueling of butane, mixed gas and MAPP torches.  Information is provided on their uses and some demos as well.  Full demonstrations involved.  You will love it! Take the stress out of using a torch, knowledge is helpful!

I am so thrilled to be a part of the exciting on line classroom format.
