Please join us for this NEW flower plant stake workshop. I will bring a mixture of colored glass in a spring theme and so much room to add
your own creativity.
Your project will be designed by using a special tac glue as an adhesive and will go home with the instructor to be kiln fired and assembled and delivered back to the Farmhouse
the following week.

Pickup dates are on Wednesdays or Saturdays between 12:00 – 3:00 pm.

This type of class does require you to work at your own pace from simple instructions. No experience is necessary, however, I will give you a quick set of designing tips in the beginning and then you will be provided the glass to create your project. If you can assemble a puzzle, you can design this! No cutting required. Class is appropriate for children ages 10+ when accompanied by an adult who purchased a ticket as well. Great for a “Mom & Me” date!

Due to Covid restrictions, you may bring your own beverage in a covered container but no food allowed. You must be masked up throughout the class. Doors will open 15 min prior to the event. This is a fundraising event for the Farmhouse. Thank you for your support!
Class size is limited.

Cost is $31 (A portion of the ticket price is donated back to The Straight Farmhouse).

Wire Beaded Art Hanging

Two Classes-

May 13 (6pm)
&
May 16 (4pm)

 Join us for some wire and beading fun to create this beautiful piece of art.

Payment is not due at this time. You will have the option to pay by check or credit card. Further details will be coming mid April. Material and Venue fee is $35. Placing an order today will reserve your seat.

All of the tools and supplies will be provided to create your bead hanging. Several different colored beads will be provided. If you would like, you may bring some beads of your own that might be special to you and incorporate them in your piece. The workshop will require you to design on your own with some basic Instructions on how to wire it up. You will go home with a finished piece. Great for hanging indoors or out. ( I recommend under a covered porch out of nature’s direct elements)

Detailed description of mechanics:

You will be able to chose from a variety of dried branches with predrilled holes and the eye hooks already in place. You will receive 6 pieces of pre-cut wire….1 for the top and 5 for the bottom. You will be supplied a set of wire pliers to attach and wrap the wire on each eye hook and make a wire at the top for which your work will hang. You may bring little trinkets from home to use but it must have a beading hole. If you bring something like a shell or other object that does not have a hole, you must know how to wire wrap as this is not a wire wrapping class. I have been beading for 20 years but only know basic wire wrapping skills.

If you are not confident that you can do this with basic instructional skills, please feel free to have a friend purchase a ticket and join you, we should have fun! After this class, you will definitely have the confidence to create again!

At this time, it is still required that you are masked up for the duration of the class and you may want to bring your own covered beverage as there is not a drinking fountain in the facility.

Material and Venue fee $35
