We're opening in a few short days!!
The place we're opening and pouring our heart souls into is a WORKSHOP.
It's going to be centered around learning, and creating.
Classes, classes and more classes!
We want it to be a warm, inviting space that people want to come to - to hang out, work on their projects, learn new things, create - and just DO ART.
In any of it's many forms!
We want it to be inspiring, motivating, colorful and FUN!
Each month, we will be offering 15-20 new classes.
Sculpting, collage, painting, rug hooking, stamping, jewelry, mosaics, needle felting, sewing, painted fabrics, dying, you name it!!
Date nights, mommy and me classes, senior classes, ladie's night out...
Basically a community creative center!
We are sooo very excited!!!
And soooo very overwhelmed at the moment trying to pull all this together!!!
We open March 3rd.
Our ad just came out in the country register, our cards arrived and we're printing off flyers as I speak. Buying supplies for the classes, renovating the building we're in, getting the back end of the business taken care of - all the paperwork etc.
Madness i tell ya!! :)
Eventually we'd like to bring different teachers in and have 2-3 day workshops centered around a specific art. Eventually we'd like to be able to carry all the supplies needed for certain kinds of projects. But right now, we are just focuses on getting it together and opened... on a shoestring budget... and it can grow from there.
The chairs you saw in the last post are a few of the chairs for the shop itself... many tables and chairs just waiting for eager students to sit in them! :)
If anyone peeked in the window right now though... 7 short days before we open... holy shamoly! all they'd see is one big MESS!! So we are frantically working to get it all done in time!
Oh.. and I still have models to make!
I hope you'll bear with me while I make this transition. I think it will all mellow out a bit and find a nice solid routine once we've been open for a little while. :) In the meantime though... i won't be around much!
I'm in the process of building the website, programming the shop computer, lining up cc services and getting the schedule hammered out. You should have something to "see" soon!!
Until then.. be well - be happy, and be thankful to the Lord above for each and every blessing!!
