ON-LINE CLASSES

I am excited to announce that I now have some online classes available.

What some people are saying about Violette’s On-Line Classes:

Thanks so very much for a wonderful class. The videos were especially helpful because not only did you demonstrate how you make your wonderful journal art but you came across as a warm and loving person….sharing and giving of your techniques as well as yourself. Love the videos of your home and garden………….. You have inspired me to color my world in the woods. I wouldn’t dare spill rainbows over our home here…beige sells…but the sky’s the limit up there. And rainbows it will be. Love and happy artmaking…

BOHEMIAN BLISS BOOK INTRO VIDEO:

ALTARS AND SHRINES:

A downloadable workshop/tutorial consisting of 4 how-to PDF files and a Video of Altars and Shrines in the Magic Cottage.


Cost: US$35.00 payable through PayPal, please click on the Button below.

Altars and Shrines have been used throughout the ages to honor deities or loved ones. Shrines give form to the intangible – we find it easier to connect with something we can see or touch.
This helps to keep memories alive and to retain the details of stories associated with the shrine’s object or honored one.

In this class you’ll be creating a variety of colorful and glittery shrines. You will transform discards like jiffy pop and candy containers into shrines fit to honor our loved ones, our creativity or deities.

This class consists of one video introducing you to a number of shrines in my home – the Magic Cottage, together with 4 downloadable how-to PDF files.
After I receive your Paypal payment you will be e-mailed the link to download your class.

- Class 1: In this class you’ll create a triptych and tabletop shrine. A triptych is three panels hinged together.
- Class 2: Jiffy Pop containers are transformed into sparkling receptacles to house our special treasures in this class.
- Class 3: Altoid tins are morphed into tiny containers to hold our deities, baubles and trinkets.
- Class 4: You’ll create a reliquary (a shrine for holding sacred treasures) to be worn as a pendant along with a pair of earrings.
