Take a break from the holiday hustle on Black Friday


Make-n-Take Ornament Class

Make your own “tangle” pattern holiday ornament 

Fri. Nov. 28 

12noon – 2:00pm   $20 + $5 materials fee

How are you spending Black Friday this year? Instead of battling the malls, take some time for yourself and make your own holiday ornament inspired by popular “tangle” art patterns. You will learn how to create your own personalized “tangle” patterns, apply them to lightweight, wood ornaments and add shiny paint and sparkles. All the tools, paints, pens and materials you need will be provided. You will leave with a truly unique handcrafted ornament.

• Ages: Teens and Adults
• Location: Classes are held in my studio, FirstHand Studio (#C322, third floor), Lake Erie Building (the Screw Factory), 13000 Athens Ave., Lakewood, Ohio. Contact information and directions.
• Registration: All fees are payable at the beginning of class. Cash, checks and major credit cards accepted. Seating is limited. If you can, please email me before class day to ensure your place.
