Le petit sac - Workshop at Tidbits and Tassels 2

Tidbits and Tassels 2 presents....

"Le petit sac" taught by Maryse Henry.

After our Friday evening of stitching and swapping, Saturday we will begin with morning delights (coffee, pastries,...) and our first workshop for the day. My incredibly talented mom, Maryse Henry, will be teaching us how to transform a blank mini tote into a work of art. Using bits of this and that and special techniques and fabric, we will learn the art of collage. All you need is your creativity and a basic class kit..the rest is provided.

Here is a little bio on Maryse ( I call her Mom)...She was born and raised near Paris, France. Although she has lived in the states for more than 40 years (12 of those in this great state, Texas), her approach to all things creative is definitely grounded in her French background. Her art work spans many different genres..from Wall Murals to miniatures to her art work gracing the White House during the Reagan administration. She loves all creative arts from needlework, sewing, knitting, crocheting, paper arts, jewelry making, to even some from way back...candle making, tole painting, doll making...get the idea:) As a child, I remember her always making something beautiful and then she with her generous heart, gave so many of her creations to family and friends. She is a delight and a wonderful wife, awesome mother, incredible grandmother and a friend to all.
