Class: Witch's Apothecary Shadow Box with Arley Berryhill

I'm happy to announce that classes will resume at CP2 beginning in March!  Arley Berryhill is kicking things off by offering a Witch's Apothecary Shadow Box that is so amazing, one glimpse and it will make you say "Tim, who?"

This is a 2-day class, stretched over one week (to give you time to collect all your items).  You will make this 8" x 12" Apothecary Shadow box to hold potions, vials, diagrams, ornaments, bones, photos & amulets for the witch in you.

1st class Arley will lead you in painting & decorating the shadow box.

2nd class Arley will show you how to add all the extras that go inside.

Supplies needed - please bring (1st class):
Acrylic paints
Paint brushes
Water cup 
Glue (for paper)
Plus, if you have them: an assortment of "Distress Inks", a blending tool, a few halloween stamps, and gel medium, --if you don't want to share in class.

(The box is designed to hang on the wall.  If you want it to stand, you might want to bring some "legs" - wooden beads or TH's metal foundation feet)

Class Kit (provided by Arley) includes:
wooden shadow box, decorative papers, textured paper & gauze, gel medium, 6 glass bottles, skulls, potion labels, hang tags, witch & vintage medical ephemera, various "ingredients", & assorted knick-knacks to add to the box. 

Sign up early, as class is limited to 10 students and this one will fill up fast!

Visit Arley's blog to see more pictures of this project and his other fabulous works!

March 31st and April 7th (2 Saturdays, a week apart) - 1:00pm to 4:00pm (class fee is $50 and covers both days)
