I spent a wonderfully crafty Sunday afternoon at Blue House this weekend helping teach a simple printmaking workshop. We designed handmade stamps and decorated pieces of wood to be transformed into racks — coat, hat, jewelry, etc. The pegs are made from found branches and I love the rustic feel of them. I forgot to bring my camera to class, so don't have photos of the other racks made — too bad because they are gorgeous! I hadn't planned on this rack being a vertical piece, but when I brought it home, the boy suggested it and it's just perfect! So clever, that boy. This way, it fits perfectly into the space I had and I can be completely lazy and just lean it against the wall, rather than hanging it. Isn't it funny how a good suggestion seems so obvious after it's said? It's the perfect display for all my favorite jewels from Courtney Fischer Jewelry, Muggy Tuesday and Glass Action. Yay!
We'll be teaching a second part of the printmaking series on Tuesday, April 17 from 6 to 9 p.m. The second class will focus on printing on fabric for your home. There's still room, so head on over to the Blue House web site to register!
