Work with Diana, a professional Artist and Designer, to create your own wonderful One-of-a-kind Designer Wall Clocks. You will have the opportunity to design an amazing decorative clock with the use of different collage items of your choosing during the evening workshop. The main thing to consider is whether you are making a more contemporary flat wall clock or an unusually eclectic collaged clock with unique items on or around your central base.
Consider a theme or a room you wish to create for
if you have any preference to suit your personal taste and space. Please
make your color and theme suggestions to Diana at least 2 weeks prior to
workshop to make sure she will consider your choice when purchasing supplies.
Learn to play with your artistic side in a fun, productive and rewarding way that will bring out your hidden talents. Collect up your closet stashes of knick knacks and miscellaneous keepsakes to include and recycle in the creative clock you design. You may choose to do something more flat and contemporary or something outrageous with levels and collage items on or around it. Great ideas may be both functional and decorative to inspire the soul within.
Add your own personal signature to your One-of-a-kind Designer Wall Clock project with any of the following items. Please wear clothing that you are not afraid to get glue on, just in case you get in a designer fervor.
Extras to bring...Unique pictures or backgrounds to put on your clock base such as wallpaper, magazine covers, gift wraps, photos, (include mini photos perhaps of several family members including pets). For collage items around or on your design consider feathers, shells, polished or raw river stones, colored mirror, broken mirror, any odd or unused knick knacks or small ornaments, kitchen utensils, broken dishes or tiles, stones, crystals, driftwood, old souvenirs, pens, pencils, toys, fridge magnets, scrabble letters, game items etc. that may be included in the project. Think small and eclectic, even broken and consider the dollar stores for lots of great ideas that might be included in your design. Also think about what you might use in place of each of the numbers on the clock. Perhaps each number can be a different magazine cutout or picture.
Please Note...There will be a plastic laminator available for you to use if desired to waterproof your pictures, sayings, cards, dried leaves etc. Items must be completely flat to go through laminating process and no larger than 8.5" wide x 14" long. Laminating sheets are an extra cost of $1.50 each. If your item to be laminated is larger than allowed, consider laminating it at a printing place in advance. Sizes of clock base fronts will be posted at a later date with design possibilities to inspire you.
