Yay October! We have a bunch of fun workshops coming up at my studio space, Common Room Studio, that I wanted to let you know about! If youâ€™re in the DC area, weâ€™d absolutely love for you to join us. We’ll be decorating some pumpkins, of course, and we’re also hosting a DIY upholstery workshop and a brush lettering workshop! Come hang out with us â€“ and learn a new skill while youâ€™re at it. Itâ€™ll be so fun!
First up, pumpkin decorating! I’m so excited to offer not one but TWO pumpkin decorating opportunities at Common Room Studio this year â€“ one weekend workshop and one weeknight workshop. Come to whichever workshop works for your schedule, or come to both for maximum pumpkin fun!
I’m offering a pumpkin decorating workshop on October 13 focused on making these fun Matisse-inspired pumpkins that I shared as a DIY tutorial last year! We’ll supply all the necessary materials and a variety of pumpkin sizes for you to decorate. Light sips and snacks will be served, and you’ll head home with beautiful seasonal dÃ©cor. Sign up for our Matisse pumpkin workshop here!
If you’d like to expand your DIY skill set, come learn upholstery with Nicole Crowder on October 7 with the amazingly talented Nicole Crowder! Nicole will teach you how to properly and safely tear down and reassemble chairs using certain tools, how to calculate the fabric and yardage necessary for various projects, materials needed for padding and upholstering, and short cuts to help achieve the job with maximum results. Plus, youâ€™ll be able to take your completed project home with you! Sign up right here!
Want to learn the beautiful art of modern brush lettering? Join Michele of Meant to Be Calligraphy at Common Room Studio on October 21! Michele will show you how to use brushes, brush pens, and different types of ink and paint to create gorgeous brush lettering with a modern twist. Youâ€™ll learn how to create the expressive thick and thin brush strokes that set brush lettering apart from both regular handwriting and modern calligraphy. Plus, youâ€™ll go home with all the materials youâ€™ll need to continue practicing and showing off your new brush lettering skills. Sign up right here!
Hope to see you there!
