getting ready to Twist!

Twist is just around the corner, and we are all about clothespin magnets.  Be one of the first 100 folks to attend Friday night or Saturday morning and get a gift bag filled with all sorts of cool stuff, not the least of which is a clothespin magnet and a discount on your next Reclaimed Crafts class!  As simple as these are, I never get bored making them.  Endless possibilities for materials, quick, beautiful and usable.  What a combination.  See you at Twist, and in the meantime, here's a preview of some of the clothespin magnets.

coasters and platters, oh my

class #3 was a whirlwind of project completion.  oh boy I sound like a lawyer, don't I?  check out these gorgeous coasters and platters made from upcycled glass and ceramic tiles, vintage maps, books and fabric.  everyone is leaving the daily grind behind and doing amazing work!  stay tuned for our upcoming roster of weekend classes at a beautiful studio space at the Arts and Industry Building in Florence.  get a jump start on holiday shopping, and best yet, create your presents instead of buying them!

here's a preview of the next project:  vintage round clothespins on reclaimed bead board from an 1800's house in downtown get upcycled as a dishtowel holder.
