Holiday Mug Painting Class

At Bahama Dawn Studios we are kicking off the October schedule with a Holiday Mug Pottery Painting Class.  You can choose from a Santa, Elf, Snowman, Pumpkin, Frankenstein mug, or a stemless pumpkin wine glass.


There are two class times to choose from, either Friday, October 6th (5:30-7:30) OR Saturday, October 7th (10am – 12 noon).  Cost of the class is $30, and that includes instruction, tools, supplies, food and drink.  Go to the classes tab at the top of the page and you will find a Paypal payment button to easily save your spot. You will have to leave your mug with me for its final firing, but it will be returned to you in about 5 days.

See you in class!

Introduction to Fused Glass & Fall Classes

The next class on the schedule is Introduction to Fused Glass.  In this class you will make a 6 inch square dish and a Christmas ornament. The class is scheduled for Saturday, September 30th, and there are only a couple spots left. You can find out more details about this class, under the Classes tab at the top of the page.

(CLASS IS FULL! Don’t worry there will be more fused glass classes coming up!)


I am really close to publishing the October schedule.  This schedule is full of Fall/Halloween/Holiday classes. Here is a sneak peak at a few of them. Let me know which are your favorites. If you head over to my Facebook page there is a little survey for you, to help me decide which Paint & SipSips to do in October.  Head over there and “like” your favorite designs.



Bubbles Pottery Painting



Bubbles Pottery Painting

Friday, September 1st
5:30pm – 7:30pm
Saturday, September 2nd
10am – 12 noon
In this class you will learn to apply this bubble technique to a plate, then add a 3 dimensional sea creature. It is an 10″ plate. You will have the choice to add either a starfish, turtle or sand dollar.
After your painting is complete, you will have to leave the plate to be glazed, and fired. Your plate will be delivered to you about a week later. Cost of class includes all of your tools, supplies, food and drink.

 Make this for yourself or start working on that Christmas gift list and give it as a gift.

A complete class schedule is posted under the “Classes” tab at the top of the page, or I can sign you up to receive a schedule by email.

Vote for the next Paint & SipSip Class!

I need a little help deciding which design to teach for the next Paint & SipSip Class.  If you head over to my Facebook page you will find an album with nine designs.  Vote for your favorites with the *Like* button.

If you can gather a group of six, or more, then you can pick your own design for your own private paint and sip also!

My Placemat Obsession!

Who doesn’t love a fun place setting when enjoying a meal?  I got really hooked on placemats several years ago, when I was doing a lot of Flickr swaps.  I did potholder swaps, mini quilt swaps, placemat swaps……you name it!  It kept my creativity flowing and, in turn, I received some awesome items in return.  The placemats really got me!  I have even taught placemat classes, because I think everyone should have fun placemats!

Here are just some of my collection…..


 One of my plans for the upcoming class schedule is to do a series of placemat classes.  They can even be made into wall hangings, or save them all and make a quilt.  The purpose of the class would be to learn a bunch of different techniques, get really good at your machine quilting, and perfect that binding, which so many of us hate to do.


One of the many techniques will be batiking fabric.  I have been wanting to teach a batik class for a long time now.  The logistics just were not working out, and I really did not want to be the one laundering all your batiked fabrics.  My washer and dryer have enough of a strain with the fabrics I make for my own pieces.  After much deliberation I have come up with a way that you can do smaller pieces of fabric, and still learn the batik process.


Hope to see you in class!


I am putting the final touches on the class schedule.  There are some fun class coming up! Glass, pottery, painting, fabric dyeing, just to name a few. Enjoy some creative time, make something special to keep for yourself or to give as a gift!

Send me your email address to be the first to receive the schedule, or check out the *CLASSES & WORKSHOPS* tab at the top of this page.

Let’s Get Creative!

Catch up with friends over drinks and snacks while getting creative.  Does that sound like a fun evening?

Over the last couple years I have hosted several Pottery Painting nights, and I am extending that to offer a painting class.  Scheduled nights will be in my studio, but if you are having a private party, or event, I can accommodate you at your place.

The Starfish painting will be the first painting class.  Make sure you are on the newsletter email list so you are the first to know the details of this class.

How many of you have Pinterest accounts with thousands of pins.  Pins of projects you want to do one day, but can never find the time, or all of the supplies to do it.  I am going to help you with that.  I have designed several Pinterest inspired project classes.  The first one is this Friday night!  All you have to do is show up.  Tools, supplies, food and drink will be provided and included in the cost.

The chalkboard above is the project for this Friday night.  There will be several of these classes scheduled between now and Christmas.  Come out and make something for yourself or as a gift.

Come join us and get creative!


This Saturday is the Earth Day Extravaganza, at Pete’s Pub in Little Harbour.  The event runs from 11 am until 7 pm.

There will be kid’s activities, artists selling their creations, and delicious Pub food.  I will also be demonstrating my glass bead making using bottles that would have normally been thrown in the trash. Below are some earrings and pendants that were made using glass bottles.

It is going to be a fun day! You do not want to miss it!
