Art & Soul – Hampton

Dang, some of you ladies have lightening fingers!  I got into four out of the six classes I was hoping for.  I only missed out on two.  So I’m very happy.  The classes I did manage to get into are: Susan Lenart-Kazmer‘s Uncommon Objects in tassels and Fringe, Michael deMeng‘s Morpheus Box: a Transformation Chamber, Kathy Wasilewski‘s Tin Souls, and Sally Jean Alexander‘s Bottle-icious Brooch.  I missed out on Stephanie Rubiano‘s Perching Pixies and another one of Sally Jean’s Little Pink Houses.  Maybe someone will not be able to make it and I can buy it from them… we’ll see.

NOTE: YAY!  They fixed the technical glitch in the A&S registration system and I was able to get into ALL  the classes I wanted!  I am so excited and cannot wait until May!

One class I wanted to take at A&S, I found is offered much closer to home.  So for all you Portlanders who wanted to take Stephanie Lee‘s Chain Gang and/or Junk Drawer Metal Smithing , they’re being offered at Innerstandings May 24 & 25.  Each class is $130 which includes lunch, beverages, and some materials… what a deal!

Innerstandings is run by Diane Havnen-Smith.  Here are some of the other classes being held at her facility in Clackamas in the near future.

Stephanie is also teaching a two day intensive workshop: Project Plaster: The Works on February 16 and 17.  The $260 cost also includes lunch, beverages, and some materials.

Judy Wise is teaching ARTFUL JOURNAL: Finding the Way on December 2.  This full-day mini-retreat runs $130 which includes lunch, beverages, and some materials.

Whimsical Folk Dolls is being taught by Katie Kendrick on January 12, 2008

There are a ton of offerings at Portland’s Bead Expo March 27-30 and I didn’t see any that are closed…

Susan Lenart Kazmer is teaching several metal working classes:  Transparent Layers – New Works in Jewelry, Creating Containers & Bezels – Cold Join, Uncommon Objects – Fringe Form Jewelry, Objects & Elements – Creating Talismans Jewelry.  The prices range from $192-196 for the class plus materials. 

Sherri Haab (see her blog) is teaching two metal clay classes: Image Transfers on Metal Clay and Mixed Media PMC Bracelet Charms.  The prices for her classes are $180 including materials.  I took a class from her in Portland at A&S.  Sherri taught with Wendy Malinow and they were such a great team.

Louise Duhamel is teaching three metal clay classes and one wire weaving class: Windows to Within, Cupids Arrow – Gold and Silver Metal Clay Pendant, Metal Clay Book Pendant, and African Basket Weave Bracelet Cuff.  The prices for these classes range from $140-170 including materials.  I took a class from her last year and learned so much!

One class that looks interesting that I may have to sign up for: Getting Your Own Original Designs Cast In Sterling.  Anyone have any knowledge about this topic?  I would love to hear about it.

I guess I should make hotel reservations now so I can find a roommate for Hampton!
