Spring Classes for Bravo School of Art

I am very excited to announce that I will now be teaching locally for Bravo School of Art.

It is located in the refurbished Marine Barracks in San Diego, now called Liberty Station. Please stop by the website and take a look at all of the classes that are offered.

Here are mine:

Do you love flowers? Do you love French wire taffeta ribbon? Then this is the perfect class for you! Learn the specifics of working with French wire ribbon, how to use the wire as a component and how to manipulate the ribbon to your advantage. Storage and other tips will be given for keeping your ribbon dust and wrinkle free. You will create 5 flowers: Pretty Posy with a button center, Quince with stamen, Pansy with ribbon center, Prim Rose with coiled ribbon center, and Cabbage Rose with beaded wire center. Make 3 separate leaves that can be used to complete a corsage or hat ornament. Materials list provided upon registration.

This is a great introduction to traditional embroidery stitches with the added flare and dazzle of embellishing with beads. These stitches can be incorporated in any fiber design that you choose, whether you make a crazy pieced or a strip block. A variety of stitches are used in each separate embroidered design, a Base Stitch, a Design Stitch, and an Embellished Stitch. Materials list provided upon registration.

*New Class* BOHEMIAN BUTTON BRACELET

$42 member / $48 non-member Materials fee $2

Bohemian, -n: a person, especially an artist, poet, or writer who lives in an unconventional, non-conforming way. Small bands of traveling wanders known as gypsies populated Europe. These colorful people conjure up thoughts of beads, charms, bells and ribbons that were used in everyday costume. Bring your precious stash of buttons and beads to class, to make a one-of-a-kind and unique bracelet. Learn about the history of buttons: the types and materials, and how buttons are made. The bracelet that you make in class from buttons, beads and charms will be reminiscent of the Bohemian Gypsy in all of us. Materials list provided upon registration.

Hope to see you in class! Enjoy,

Christen

  1. On occasion I visit California. I will be sure to check to see if you offer any classes before I come out next time. I’d give anything to attend one. Your work is spectacular. Congratulations on your new school. It sounds like a wonderful place to teach and learn.
