I LOVE the kitsch associated with Christmas! Slightly loved ceramic figurines made long-ago. Silver tinsel. Little bottle-brush trees in an array of colors not necessarily found in nature.
A junker at heart, I’ve been picking up little Santas, ornaments, and doo-dads for years. So much so it’s taking up much-needed shelf space in the Studio. I figured I could part with my treasures if I shared them with like-minded glitter-lovers in a workshop making shadowboxes.
We’ll start with a modest cigar box and add chalk paint in your favorite holiday color. Then you’ll dig through the bins of figurines, trims, tiny ornaments and the like to create your tableau. Once you’ve burned every finger using a hot glue gun, you’ll walk out bandaged, but triumphant with your very own Kitschy Christmas Scene (perfect for gift-giving). (I do find that if I use a chopstick instead of my finger, I don’t burn quite so much. Little safety tip there…)
Students should bring:
- A glue gun if you have one (to cut down on wait time)
- You’ll be able to dig through our stash BUT feel free to bring small items you love for your shadowbox.
