Additionally I hope to teach a workshop or two in Marbling and/or Box Making during the summer and fall Clearing Workshop Classes. I will keep you posted!


***  HOME STUDIO CLASSES are small intimate classes of  five or six people taught in my Sister Bay Studio, normally on Wednesdays. Classes range from Long Stitch Binding, Coptic Binding, and Secret Belgian Binding to Box Making 101 and more advanced Box Making Classes. The classes start at 9 and run to about 2 or so, with a short break for lunch. Students bring a bag lunch. There is water and soda available and a small refrigerator. The goal is learning made fun!

Each class is $45, plus a materials fee, which varies with the class.  If you are interested in registering or have questions please contact me at or test or call at 920-854-4246. 

Specific Classes will be listed in late January. Some thoughts I have include a 

Buttonhole Binding, a  Tissue Box Cover, a Jewelry Box, and some Silk Scarf
