Acrylic Meets Fiber Workshop 
Jacqueline Sullivan

Jacqueline's classes are a favorite for many students.  She has a huge following in Michigan and you'll know why after taking one of her classes!  She teaches magic in art and this single class incorporates all sorts of it!  Check this out:

In this class Jacqueline Sullivan uses her treasure box of acrylic techniques as surface design on fabric. Students will learn to use Gesso, Molding Paste, Tissue and more on a fabric ground to build layers and textures. The texture developed with these tools will then be highlighted with metallic media. 
Finished products make great Art Quilts, Table Runners, and embellishments on other handmade items

Each student will receive a set of instructive handouts and color photos for the various techniques that are covered in this workshop.

Media: acrylics and fabric

Course Fee: $115 per student (kit fee included)

Kristen Robinson in June!

It is hard, near impossible, not to fall in love with Kristen Robinson!

Her work is so…her! She is nice and kind and drama-free. I love her artistic style and quality teaching.  They are as unique and lovely and fun as Kristen is!

Kristen's classes offer something for everyone. 
(See Kristen Robinson tab above for details).

Like journals?  Take this class --> 


Is jewelry your thing? Take this class -->

How about shadowboxes?  
This is your class!

Kristen has such a way with students. No matter your skill level, you will be inspired, impressed with your skill set and well, (don’t blame me), you’ll probably fall for this artist too!

Please reserve your space early as these classes will fill up. Email dehavendesign@gmail.com for registration and payment info.

Nellie Wortman's Magic

It was so special to host Michigan-based artist, Nellie Wortman, during the first days of spring!

Her work is so moody and beautiful and her techniques are distinctive and all her own.  It felt special learning from Nellie.  She is so open and honest and willing to share much about her exceptional journey!  

Thank you Nellie!  If you get the chance to take a class for her, do it! She's magical!

Spring! And not a moment too soon...

Spring is nearly here when fresh air is abundant, green sprouts emerge from the frozen earth and there is a sense of hopefulness. Ah life, you never go according to my plans.

It is so important to have special things to look forward to. This March, I am really looking forward to taking classes from Nellie Wortman! She has such a kind spirit along with her immense talent. Nellie's Make a Bezel, Enchanted Book, and Blessings Wall Hanging classes are coming up fast.
In mid-June, Kristen Robinson returns with some new creative imaginings with Divine Bangles, Grunged Up and Glamourous Upcycled Journals and Tale in My Heart - Plaster, Wax, Paper Clay Shadow.

I hope you have things to look forward to in your life this spring! Life is short, use your art supplies!
