Gathering Basket Class

On February 19 and February 20, Katie Avrim will be conducting her monthly basket class, this month featuring the "Gathering Basket". Get ready for spring and Easter a little early this year with a gathering basket that is finished with tulips. The square-based basket has a swing handle and features embellished tulip flowers added after the basket is finished. Don't like the tulips? Leave it plain or with lots of color accents, or it can be whitewashed and flowers can be painted on. The choice is yours! Class fee is $45.00, to make the basket, including the embellished tulip weaving. All materials, use of tools and instruction is included in the price. Just wear comfortable clothes, bring or borrow an apron, bring a lunch and beverage and plan on having lots of laughs while you make a basket that is great all year long. Class starts at 10:30am and will most likely run until approximately 4:30pm. Each class is limited to 6 students.

The Coo's FIRST ever Mini Madness weekend,

It is almost here...The Coo's FIRST ever Mini Madness weekend, featuringSue Monaghan - whoop whoop! Fifteen people are registered for the workshops and it is going to be such a glorious, creative time! Here is a list of what participants need to bring with them for the workshops (participants may use the shop's supply of these items as long as they don't mind sharing; if participants prefer not to share these items, please bring (or purchase at the shop) the following:

BLACK Stabilo pencil
BLACK gel pen (Signo UM153 is great)
WHITE opaque/gel pen (Signo UM 153 is the BEST)
Assorted brushes (if you want; otherwise, use what is at the shop)
Apron (the shop has 10 aprons but Sunday morning's class has more than 10 in it)

We will also be using Caran d'Ache neocolor II water-soluble crayons. At the start of the workshop, everyone will be given a NEW set of 10 crayons to USE (NOTE: it is NOT a gift) during the workshop. At the conclusion of the workshop, participants are able to buy the set they have been using at a 10+% discount. The set retails for $22.99; but the slightly used set can be purchased for $20.00. Sets not purchased will become part of the shop's stash for future workshops, so there is no pressure to buy. If you have your own Neocolor crayons and wish to bring them, feel free to do so.

There are still a couple of openings (but NOT Sunday morning) in two of the workshops if you have been "on the fence" about registering.

It is not too late to order a boxed lunch if you have yet to do is just $10 and includes a sandwich, beverage, chips and dessert.

The Coo is going to be rocking this weekend!!!
