Make a pretty (and practical!!) "mug rug" and a decorated mug.

For the rug, we will use wool and a simple rolling technique to make coils that will then be needle felted onto a wool felt base and embellished with tiny beads. A cork layer on the bottom will finish it off and help make it waterproof.

For the mug, we will use alcohol ink to drip decorate. The mug is then sealed with a dishwasher safe mod podge.

Class will include supplies needed to make the mug and rug. If you have felting foam and a felting needle please bring them; otherwise there will be foam and a needle provided.

Cost for the class is $20 per person.

GLASS MOSAICS -- by appointment  (Glass Mosaic Workday scheduled Wednesday, November 15, 12-3 p.m.)

Occasionally we add glass mosaic workdays to the schedule, but this is a project you can come in any time to make.  We prefer people to make an appointment to make sure there is space and time to complete your project. All supplies will be available to make 5x7inch or 8x10inch faux stained glass mosaics. If participants prefer to work on a different project, they are welcome to bring other items such as trays, table tops, mail boxes, picture frames, etc. as a base for their mosaic. A 5x7 piece usually takes 2 to 3 hours; an 8x10 piece usually takes 3 to 4 hours. Cost is $20 for a 5x7, $35 for an 8x10.
