I am teaching a Steam Punk Class!

Yes I am teaching a class and what's more it's free and online! Starting May 15th, I will be teaching a class on how to make a Steam Punk Shadow Box and backdrop canvas! Basically some ins and outs I learned as I made mine. You can see my box here below. It was fun and very stimulating. If you want to take the class all you need are some old pictures of the industrial revolution. Bits of collage pieces you think might be of interest. Bobbles you might have found on your travels to the antique stores or even the dump! Some gesso, some e 6000 glue, paint brushes, tissue paper with victorian designs or basic black and white shapes. Old junk jewellry and I even used some dried flowers. I kept mine sepia and black and white but the sky is the limit! I also had some tiny metal frames, some krylon silver paint to spray on junk plastic pieces.
I will be teaching the class on the following group:
