Gelli Plate Printing Jamboree

On Sunday The Coo hosted its first Gelli Plate Printing Jamboree and what fun everyone had! For just $5.00, people could come and try their hands at making prints using Gelli plates. I think the pictures speak for themselves as the ladies played to their hearts content with Gelli plates, paint, stencils, texture tools, etc. Gelli P Arts - Gel Printing Plate is going to be HOT at The Coo...look for some fun class offerings in the months to come...

Sunday, February 12, 2017


People have been asking for it, so I have decided to give it a try. Each month there will be TWO opportunities to come and reserve a spot at a table and work on unfinished projects (this is NOT a class…there will be no instruction, but assistance will be available). What you work on (scrapbooking, card making, unfinished “stuff”) is up to you and the charge is $5.00 per session. The Rent-A-Table days will be held on the first Thursday and/or the second Sunday of each month. There will be a morning session (10:00am – 1:00pm on Thursdays and 11:00am – 2:00pm on Sundays) and an afternoon session (2:00pm – 5:00pm on Thursdays and Sundays). Participants may register for one or two sessions and may bring lunch and snacks to stay fueled. 
PLEASE NOTE: For the month of February ONLY, this will NOT be available on the SECOND Sunday but on the THIRD Sunday due to a scheduling conflict.

ART WARRIOR DOLLS: In this workshop Celeste and Merri will help you to channel your creativity to make an art warrior that reflects all that is brave, inspiring and fun. Make this whimsical creation for yourself or to use as a gift for someone who could use a little love. The doll uses scraps of fabric, embellishments and printed sayings to convey your personality. A secret pocket on the back of your warrior is for that special something such as a gift card or words of wisdom. Workshop will be held on Saturday, February 18, from 1:30pm – 5:00pm. Fee for the workshop is $45.00. All materials and supplies are provided.
