Whether you want a workshop that’s holiday oriented or one for no special occasion at all, Elinor can offer something that will delight the participants with useful and fun-to-do projects. Her repertoire includes a broad range of projects and techniques, including decoupaging, embossing, stamping, collaging, and punching.
How about a workshop on decorating candles with real flowers or leaves? Or making petal-shaped boxes out of hand-decorated paper. . . creating stunning gold-embossed pendants from pieces of slate . . . . making greeting cards with images that pop up? One favorite project is making lovely hand painted silk scarves. Elinor suggests that at least two hours be allowed for each class and that class size be limited to ten participants. Workshops on scrapbooking and altered books are best done in three or four sessions. There will be a small fee for materials. Some organizations pay the fee; others ask the participants to pay.
