PAINTING & MOSAïQUES – AMANDA PETRO
@amandapetroart

Come and explore painting patterns and color using watercolor, then creating your own Mosaïque with Artist Amanda Petro

My Mosaïque’s are collages made of remnants from previous paintings. The initial paintings, as a whole, for whatever reason, just never felt totally complete. They were all missing something- maybe the composition didn’t come together as I had planned or the colors were slightly off. But rather than discarding these perceived painting failures, I simply set them aside. Eventually, I was drawn back to them and noticed the beauty in the works I had abandoned. I disassembled them carefully, saving highlights from each. Every Mosaïque contains fragments from numerous paintings, so collaging them together is a very tedious process. I equate it to assembling a puzzle without an image to reference. Each individual component dictates what should follow. Once the Mosaïque’s were all arranged and glued together, I had an epiphany: Every mark made is important and has value. Sometimes, we too, must be broken down and put back together to find our intended purpose and beauty.

JEWELRY MAKING WORKSHOP – LUCY FARMER
@lucysinspired

“Adornment Story”
Join Lucy Farmer as you create your own meaningful piece of jewelry designed to remind you of your own adornment story: making something broken beautiful. Women are welcome to bring something special of their own to add to it!

I started my career in retail as a buyer for a department store called Parisian. I’ve been on both sides of the retail world when I owned a storefront selling art supplies.

As social media came to the business world I decided to help others grow their presence and as the VP of Marketing for an advertising agency, I helped create many stories on social media and websites.

Having a bit of a creative side myself, I designed a line of jewelry that I took to market and sold to stores all over the nation creating a 6 figure business within the year and still sell a line called Inspire to Give where we give back to non-profits that I care deeply about.

 

GRAZING WORKSHOP – COURTNEY WRIGHT
@savor_style

If you love cheese boards, but feel overwhelmed at the thought of putting one together (so many options, where to start?), then this workshop is for you! Courtney will walk participants through her favorite tips and tricks for building a beautiful board, including how she chooses certain items, the best way to display or serve them, tips on scale, sizing and colors, and sourcing notes on where to shop around town.

Courtney Wright combines her love of food and entertaining by creating custom grazing boards and styled spreads for a variety of events and brands. At the heart of Savor Style is her desire to encourage people to gather and connect, and the belief that no occasion is too small to celebrate.
