Sun Portrait Mini-Course with Susan Carlson

In celebration of the New Year and it’s increasingly longer daylight hours, Susan Carlson will be offering a winter course creating a fabric-collaged Sun Portrait. Susan has devised a no-pressure "cutting loose" approach creating a personified sun's face and will walk students through each step of creating this colorful wall-hanging. This course of three classes will be presented January through March - one Saturday each month. The arrangement of the three-month course allows students the time to work on each step at home, at their own pace, before returning to class for feedback and further instruction. An image of the portrait may be seen at the shop or online at Susan's website at: Keep in mind that the "Cutting Loose" process inherently creates a unique arrangement of fabrics in eachcollage. No two portraits will be alike in the end - an extremely serendipitous, fun and freeing process. Perfect for warming up cold days in our winter months!

Dates: 3 Saturdays, Jan. 31st, Feb. 28th, and Mar. 28thTime: 12:30pm – 4:30pmCourse fee: $180 – 12 total hours of instruction(Fee can be payable in installments through a credit card.)For further info please contact the shop at 443-2900 orSusan at 207-833-5665.
