Our staff are certified trainers for Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paints. We offer workshops in basic and advanced techniques as well as other fun workshops for adults and children. Please check our workshop schedule for dates and cost.
Open Studio Time
Work on your project in our studio instead of your home. Supplies may be purchased at the shop, if necessary. Open studio times are posted on the workshop schedule.
Distressed Painting 101:
Learn the basics of milk paint- from choosing the perfect color to properly mixing and applying. All supplies are included except the piece you will paint. A small wooden piece is recommended (frame, stool, bowl).
Advanced Painting Techniques:
Learn new painting techniques such as crackled paint, how to layer paints, the “chippy look”, stains and washes, and other distressing techniques. Bring a piece to experiment with.
(with Lori Chandler from Ashgrove Soaps) Introduction to cold processed soap making: a hands-on class where you will learn about the history of Colonial soapmaking, how to make cold processed soap with premium oils, and how to label your soaps. Bring home the soap YOU make in class! Wear old clothes, bring a long-sleeved shirt, and closed-toe shoes. We provide all of the equipment including goggles and gloves.
Pysanky Eggs, Silk Scarf Painting, Making of Blessing Bowls– are just a few of the upcoming classes. Contact the shop or check our website for more details for the owner’s hand selected specialty class of the month.
Mommy and Me Class:
Enjoy a few hours with some one-on-one time with your favorite little person. The classes change monthly so be sure to call or visit the website for all the details. One thing that doesn’t change - there is always a special treat at the end of the class and a special hand-made gift to take home.
