Mask Making Workshop Sunday March 30 & April 6 from 1-4

Mask Making Workshop Sunday March 30 & April 6 from 1-4

Hello Folks

This workshop is a great way to connect with a friend, partner, or loved one as it takes two people to make one mask- a truly unique art-form.

Last year I had married couples tell me that it did wonders for their relationship. As we head into spring and start to think of love, and warm fuzzy feelings… might I suggest bringing a friend or that special someone in your life? Perhaps parents might want to capture their child’s face forever in plaster before they grow up too quickly.

If you register as a “couple” and that just means two people you don’t have to be in a “relationship” you can pay only $110 for the two of you.

If you are not in a relationship and find yourself single a please don’t be shy come have a blast and celebrate your fabulousness with me and meet new people!

Wishing you a blyssful week and month of self care and love.
