Class: Muerto Shrine with Anne Engelhardt and Cheryl Valadez

Anne Engelhardt and I will join forces for our third collaborative project this Saturday.  This time we've created a festive Dia de los Muertos shrine to celebrate the upcoming holiday.  

Anne will begin the day by showing you how to construct and paper the shrine, and emboss the beautiful metal border that decorates the perimeter.  Yes, the box base is made from scratch and you'll learn the intricacies from the master of paper engineering herself.

In the afternoon, I'll take over and we'll finish out our shrines by completing a whimsical scene for the inside and adding a bit of bling to the outside.  We'll even use a couple of Copic colors to brighten up the corners.

This piece is designed to hang on the wall and will add a festive feel to any room.

Bring your regular class kit, but be sure to add a craft knife and a pair of super sturdy scissors such as Tonic or Tim Holtz brands.  These are absolute MUSTS.

October 8th, Saturday:  10:00am - 5:00pm with a brief break for lunch on your own
