2014 Kids Classes at Maureen's

June 19, 2014
Personal Fairy Gardens

Start your own personal Fairy-Garden-in-a-Pot that you can care for through all seasons.

 In class we will use dirt, moss, acorns, small stones, twigs, shells and silk vines to create a magical setting to lure fairies to your unique garden. We will also make small furniture and maybe a wee turtle, from polymer clay, to invite the fairies to come in, visit, and take a rest! With your imagination there is no limit to the creative possibilities!

Fairy Garden Flower Pot

And the adventure goes on. After class you can continue to fill your fairy garden with colorful bling (they like shiny things) and other miniature fairy garden accessories that you make, find or purchase.

 If you wish to add small plants, you can do that as well, but be sure that your fairy garden pot has a hole in the bottom for drainage.

Supplies: The dirt, polymer clay and a selection of bling plus gifts from nature will be provided

Please bring:

  • A container, no bigger than 8 inches deep and 14 x 14 inches wide. Antique stores are a great place to look.

July 3, 2014 - Pet Rocks
Your parents will surely let you own a pet that you don't have to even feed, or walk, right?

In this class you'll learn to make your own special pet rocks. Pick your rocks, pick your clay colors and off we are to making what might also be called a unique paperweight.  Learn a few twists and turns with the clay and you will have your very own pet rock that will never grow old.

Shoebox Shops: Clay Cafe

A Café in a Shoe box??? “Of Course” said the fairies. “It’s the perfect size!” Become the owner of a Shoe Box Café. You’ll design the décor, and create the menu, including some clay fairy food and furniture.

NOTE: You will get the main parts of the Shoebox Shop created in class, though not as many details as shown in photo. But, you can keep adding and adding to your heart's content once you get home. After all, a cafe doesn't close  until the lights go out! The August 7 class also fits into this theme.
