I'm happy to announce that planning for Birdsong Four is underway and once past attendees and sponsors have had first chance at signing up, I will open registration to the public.
If you have participated in any of my previous workshops, as a student or sponsor, please contact me for early registration at:
if you would like to attend Birdsong 4 and I will send you a PayPal invoice, or set up a payment schedule.
This year's teachers will be myself, Andrea Singarella, and Lori Oles. We have been friends for years and I am thrilled to have them both here for our weekend adventure. Andrea is about the most kind hearted and talented person you'll ever meet and my buddy, Lori, while being one of the most prolific creative minds I know, is also about as witty and fun as a person can be.
Birdsong is held at my home in Lawrence, KS. This city was just remarked upon in Country Living for being so cute. I'm afraid most Lawrencites might think we are more hip than cute, but hey, we'll take the compliment. Anyway, it's a fun downtown area to visit while you are here, with lots of independent restaurants and shops.
Lawrence is about 50 minutes from the Kansas City, MO airport and there are numerous hotels within 10 minutes of my home.
This is the same weekend that the West Bottoms Antique district in Kansas City is open, with many warehouse sized shops filled to the brim with one of a kind finds. If you are coming in a day early, First Fridays are a good time to scratch your antiquing itch. (This is not part of our workshop, just an idea for you out of towners who want to get out and about while you are visiting)
My studio is now featured in the current issue of Where Women Create and is the destination for our 2 days of play time. There will be two classes each day, and the kits will be complete with everything you need to produce the 4 unique pieces of art being taught.
Our workshop will be Saturday June 7 and Sunday June 8, 2014
Cost- $325 includes:
- Lunch, beverages, treats both days
- Dinner on Saturday night with wine and desserts
- Four classes with complete kits
Saturday night we will open swap surprises and have a shopping venue set up with lots of vintage treasures, art supplies and some other pretties. The food is all home cooked, using organic items from our own garden as much as possible.
If you have any questions, or would like to join us for our 4th annual Birdsong, please email me at:
If you would like to be a sponsor for the weekend, all gifts are appreciated and your website will be listed on the side bar of my blog.
