Tinsel Trading Workshop Details

The details for the Tinsel Trading workshop I'll be teaching are finally all worked out and we're ready for an official announcement. Yippee!

The main thing to take note of is that we changed the date. The original date of October 1st is really just right around the corner and for people who need to plan ahead or for people who are traveling, I thought moving it out a bit would make it much easier. The new date is Saturday, October 22nd from 11-4. And if you want to take the class, but think it's too far of a trip for a single event, I can tell you all about the things that are going on (haunted houses anyone?) and the places I love to go (cool stores and cool hangouts) and you can easily make a fabulous long weekend out of it. :) October and December are my favorite times to visit the city and I hope you'll come take my class and check out New York!
I made the workshop as inexpensive as I could (because that's what I would want if I were taking the class!) and basically for the price of buying the finished piece, you'll be able to make your own, just the way you want and I'll teach you all the tricks and techniques along the way. Most or all of the materials will be provided (bringing small pliers might be helpful as I don't have too many, or we could share) and if you wanted to (but it's not necessary), you can buy extra doodads from the Tinsel Trading shop to add to your creation. You can take a break and walk around (or in my case, snoop around), pick out something awesome and glue it on right then and there...how neat is that? Oh...plus TT is providing a "light lunch". Sounds good to me!
The official class description is below and spaces are limited. If you have any questions at all...just let me know! :)

Learn the basics of spinning cotton in Crystal Hanehan of Vintage by Crystal’s spun cotton Spooky Hollow Treat Box workshop!

For the same price as the finished piece itself, learn how to make your own spun cotton figure on an arbored box from scratch using cotton, wire, crepe paper, old flowers, glitter and other vintage doodads. You’ll learn numerous new tips for crafting and by the end of the class you’ll take home a completely original and one of a kind spun cotton figure along with a decorated box base and arch. Follow the sample piece and make a pretty red witch, or Crystal can help you make a pumpkin person, bat person or anything else your Halloween heart desires.

This class is fun and easy for everyone and allows you to be as creative as you want. Come join Crystal and get your craft on!

I need to go to NY on a fabric buying trip, so it looks like that just might be the weekend! If I can arrange it with the family's schedule, I'll be there. :)
