Have you heard about FELIZ?
Feliz will be a celebration of handmade, beautifully planned and hosted by Abby Powell Thompson and Natalie Davis in Austin, this November. I'm over the moon that I'll be participating, and so excited to meet all the truly inspiring makers that will be there. Two winters ago, I traveled to Portland to participate in another of Abby's events, and if her latest endeavor is even a fraction of the fun Little Winter was, Feliz will be nothing short of magic. I can't wait! For those of you within a day's trip of Austin, or even beyond, I hope you'll join us - and say hello!
In addition to selling wares, some folks will be giving workshops the day before the sale, I'm so happy & honored to be included in the line up, there are some seriously amazing workshops planned. I only wish I could attend, too! I love that Abby and Natalie wanted to provide an opportunity for makers to spend more time sharing what they love with folks attending the event. Getting out of the studio, getting to talk about what I love, share a project, make new friends - it's a dream come true, and definitely what I'm looking forward to most!
My workshop is centered around creating a keepsake. Each participant will be given their own giant, gorgeous shadowbox to display either a cherished photo, or favorite quote (or even a bit of both) along with a decal of their choosing. Folks will have the option to have their captions and quotes hand lettered by me at the workshop, or do their own lettering, if they wish.
I've created several of these keepsakes, for friends, clients and myself, and I always love the results. It's a fun and heartfelt project, and makes for a beautiful holiday gift (for yourself or a loved one). More details about the class can be found at the listing, but if you're interested, and have questions, please feel free to email me! I'd love to see you there!
