Teaching: Shine Banner Class

Next Saturday, I have the privilege of traveling up to Oklahoma City to teach at the Paper Crown. I so very much enjoy my time up there! Cindy has such a delightful store, and her customers are amazing. The level of creativity and artistry demonstrated in the stores decor and classes inspires me to no end.

I'll be teaching a basic, introductory soldering class Saturday morning and a new, intermediate, class that afternoon - a soldered banner! Here's a photo and the class description:

Do you ever have those moments when your family is driving you bonkers? When your "friends" feel like your biggest foe? When you're at the park, and someone is trying to small talk your child? It's in those very moments that I need a reminder to shine. Shine through the adversity and challenges and meet them head on! So with that in mind, I designed and created this sweet banner to display and remind me to meet those challenges head on.

In this quick paced class you'll create a create a large 5 lettered soldered bunting banner, using a 5 letter word that is special to you. The glass we'll be using has been custom hand cut and finished especially for this class. Additional glass will be available for purchase if you would like to create a longer word. This class is geared towards participants who have previous soldering experience and know how to wrap, solder, and attach jump rings.

In addition to a soldering station (tile, iron, stand, solder, flux & brush, clothespins/clamps, sponge, burnisher, hemostat & glass cleaner), students will need to bring the following supplies with them: hand towel, paper cutter, scissors, pencil, glitter glue, flat nosed jewelry pliers. Feel free to bring any small jewelry bits and baubles also to customize your banner! Please come prepared with what word you would like to use, as we'll be cutting them during class. (Basic soldering kits can be purchased here from Robin on etsy. You'll definitely want to add a pair of bent nosed hemostats to help with jump rings if you don't have one already)

If you'd like to join us, give Cindy a call at (405) 848-2389! It's going to be a day of fun!
