Sweet Paul Makerie

by Tona Bell March 23, 2014 1 min read

I headed to NYC with my best gal pals for a weekend of play and inspiration at the Sweet Paul Makerie.  This is my third Makerie and it was the first one held outside of Boulder.  I am honored to be a part of the inaugural event.  

The event was at the new offices of Sweet Paul Magazine, so beautifully whitewashed and very New York.

There was an awesome pop up show that featured works from the amazing teachers, such as this lovely seahorse mobile.

I took ink blocking and stenciling with the one and only Lotta Jansdotter.  She is so nice and down to earth, a very good teacher and super inspiring.

Cuddly Owl class with Mimi Kirchner.  She was lovely and we learned many new tips and tricks.  We didn't finish however you can see how cute they are turning out, our coven of owls.

Paper Flowers class with Anthropologie display merchandiser and fashion designer, Elise Dee, These are coffee filters that have been dyed with Rit and then dipped in paraffin wax.  So fun and very cool to play with wax.  I think I am going to wax everything in sight now.

Living Wreath class with Matthew Robbins of Matthew Robbins Designs.  He is a contributor to Martha Stewart Weddings and creates events all over the world.  It was an honor to learn from him!

Until next time, we can't wait for the next Sweet Paul Makerie!
