Paint, collage and stamping are used to create a colourful wall-worthy, mixed-media painting. After the painting is complete, frame and embellish your work with inspirational text using a Cricut® Maker cutting machine.
Do you have a Cricut® Cutting Machine and don't know where to start? Or maybe you're thinking of investing in one and you want to learn more? Join us for a night of getting started with your Cricut® Maker! You will get to put the Cricut® to use over a glass of wine (or tea) and we'll go through all of the basics (vinyl, paper, stencils) while creating a DIY sign project that you will be proud to keep or give as a gift. The instructor will contact you in advance by email to select a design.
