Last weekend I had two delightful women in my studio to do a paper theatre class. After talking a bit, they decided it would be fun to do a paper theatre, reminicent of an old-time shop, in this case a 'Sewing Shop' and a 'Candy Shop'! We designed them so they are more or less to scale with dollhouse accessories and then went from there. I think this will be a new class idea for next time around. Just think what wonderful shops you can hang on your wall, and I love the idea that you can add miniature doll-house accessories to them... In the sewing shop, note especially the wonderful 3/d cabinet, the 'wooden spool' table and those puffy curtains. And in the candy shop, the lovely lady behind the counter (she's actually from an old opera print of mine), those yummy colors throughout and the mirrored shelves full of candy boxes! WOW OH WOW!
What really made the day special was having only 2 students! Not that I don't love bigger groups, but having only two or three, allows me to really get to know them, and they get one on one attention from me. So I am going to offer a few days a month as 'BRING A FRIEND CLASSES', you chose what you'd like to make, bring your best friend, or friends, and we'll make a day of it... ANY ONE INTERESTED?
