Custom Classes: Creativity Breaks Just for You, Scheduled on Your Time
Get five people together and you can have your own workshop!
Any of the art workshops I teach is available as a Customized Creativity Experience for adults. What better way to celebrate a birthday, a holiday, a wedding, a promotion, a new baby, a divorce, a Friday . . .

At Your Location

If the event is at your home or office, you provide the food, the attendees, the chairs and work surfaces, and I'll bring all the supplies, the instructional hand-outs and my own helpful self. I need a minimum of five people - you and four friends - to make it worthwhile. Charges start at $45 per person, and go up from there, depending on the type of workshop. Only have four people? That's ok - I'll just still need to charge you for five.
If you have between 5 and 16 people in your group, I may be able to arrange for rental space at Collage (an art store with workspace on NE Alberta). Additional rental costs will apply. If you have more than 16 participants, you will need to arrange for an appropriate session space.
The sessions usually last three hours, and I'll need at least half an hour before the session for set-up and half an hour after for packing up. With advance notice, I can schedule sessions on weekdays, weekday evenings, and weekend days. It is also possible to schedule full-day, six-hour sessions, 10 am - 5 pm, with a one-hour lunch break. Some workshops (noted below) are only available as five or six hour sessions. Please note that the earliest start time available for a session is 10 am, and the latest end time for a session is 9:30 pm.

My transportation is included within the Asheville Metro area. However, for a location more than 15 miles or 30 minutes travel from Asheville's city center, a travel surcharge may apply. A 50% deposit is required to secure the session, and will not be refunded if the event is canceled with less than 48 hours notice.

And yes, my classes are designed for adults. I'm focused on giving grown-ups the fun art experience they didn't get in school! However, some classes may be appropriate for Mother-Daughter type events with kids in their tweens or older. Contact me if you have questions.

At My Home Studio, Hearth

Groups of six or fewer can meet at my home studio, Hearth. The studio is located in West Asheville, NC. As this is my private home, the exact address will be given only at registration.

Generally, I require a minimum of five people - you and four friends - to run a custom workshop. Sample rates are based on 5 people.

Sample Workshops: Here are a few sample ideas for custom classes. If you don't see what you want, let me know, and we'll work something out! All prices are per person and include all materials.

Intuitive Collage (3 hour class, $55 per person) This is a wonderful, intuitive, exploratory introduction to artmaking for the creatively blocked or the artistically shy. This can also be transformed into a fun holiday card-making or vision-boarding event.

Mod Podge Madness (Decoupage switch plates, frames, candles, or anything that holds still, 3 hours, $55 per person) Mod Podge is a wonderful decoupage glue that can be used to adhere decorative papers and images to almost anything! This is a class that lets you personal objects, and take your collage to a whole new level!

Recycled Rubber Cuffs and other Bicycle Inner Tube Jewelry (3 hours, $55 per person) Learn a few basic jewelry making techniques, and make your own wearable art from recycled bicycle inner tubes! A fun, easy class that produces jewelry that can look tough or delicate!

Cigar Box Shrines (recommended as a 6-hour intensive or weekend class, $75 - $150 per person) See a full description here.

Touch Drawing (usually part of Artmaking as Playful Prayer, 3 hour class, $55 per person) Bring a whole new awareness to your hands as art tools - use touch to create amazing art that is literally hand made. This process is deeply intuitive and healing.

Please note that I at this time, I am only offering encaustic classes through retreats or small group (three people or less) instruction at my studio. If you're interested in encaustic instruction, visit here.
Other classes can also be arranged and custom classes can be designed - contact me at for more information.
