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.

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.

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!
