Art Opera ~

Have you heard the news ~ Art Opera registration is now open!

This fabulous East Coast event is the magical dream brought to life by the amazingly talented Lisa Kettell

Calling all costume designers...

My class ~ Belle of the Opera is a mixed media art doll project
We'll use paint, embroidery stitches, and vintage millinery supplies to create a freestanding doll. With embroidered samplers making a huge comeback, I thought it would be fun to incorporate some simple hand stitching, but fear not if you have never embroidered before. Whether your style is simple elegance or over-the-top, the emphasis will definitely be on having fun and being creative! The end of class we'll have a little fashion show, line the dolls up, and send them down the cat walk


I drew on my career in Fashion Design when I created this project; custom bridal, children's clothing, and fabric & embroidery design. My love of paper and vintage style arts & crafts has been a lifelong passion which I've switched my focus to in recent years, but fabric seems to be creeping back in more and more

Hope you'll join us for the artful festivities!
