Unleash The Xmas Kracken Early

First pick your favorite winter story and scene: Ice Skating in Central Park; Baby Jesus and the Wise Men; Snarky Snowmen; Santa Claus and Rudolph - whatever puts you in the Holiday Spirit! Then let the ARTing begin:

  • Staci shows us how to make amazing 3D figures using wire and plaster gauze. (Camels and reindeer and sheep, OH MY!)

  • Caroline guides you through gelatin plate printmaking - then you’lll collage your amazing patterned papers onto paper mache trees and stars. (Fa la la la la dee dah!)

  • Dar leads us in painting a clever backdrop or table base (Stars, Snowflakes and Evergreen Swags!)

  • Jenni shows us how to needle felt cute critters and soft stars and then helps us weave winter stars to hang on the tree and the chandelier….(Twinkle, Twinkle, Baby!!)

    Whether your December celebrates all the Whos down in Whoville or the Hallelujah Chorus, you’ll be blown away by all the techniques covered in this 6 day workshop. And we will laugh, feast, toast, and make art in the comfort of The Nut House in Walnutport, PA. It IS a Wonderful Life!
