Haunted cabinet_closed 

Saturday, October 8th:  "Halloween Cabinet of Wonders" Class

Instructor:  Janeen Shember

Time: 11:00 - 3:00 pm

Cost: $90

*This spookiliscious project is just the thing to get you in the mood for for haunting, tricking, and treating. Each tiny box is a vignette, a story all its own. And each one features a special technique or discovery inspired by the "spirit" of someone special. Can you find them all? Tortured block letters, wrappings and rappings, Edgar Allan Poe, potions and quotations, and trappings of woe? Hold onto your coffins, and away we go!

We'll create creaking doors, reeking relics, and ghastly gasps. And what Halloween would be complete without a little something under the bed, or rattling in your closet? Stamping, inking, distressing, paper molding, mummy wrapping - there will be so many new tricks you'll scream!

Everything you see in the sample will be part of the class, plus you'll have lots of extras to take home. There will be treats - no tricks! - and a Tim Holtz raffle prize as well. So gather your spirits and join in the fun, for Halloween has almost begun!

Stop by the store to see the awesome sample!

Also, don't forget this Saturday we have our All Day Crop which runs from 10:00 am to 11:00 pm.  For $35 you get light snacks, drinks and dinner and a FULL day of cropping!  Call the store to sign up!
