Helvetia Lavender Festival

Posted on

July 7, 2016


Friday, July 8, is the first of three days of the Helvetia Lavender Festival.  This is a once a year event where you can drink in the scent of blooming lavender, hum with the song of the bees, visit Oregon vendors, listen to live music, eat tea and scones, enjoy kids’ activities and, for the first time, visit my workshop!


Denny’s Workshop will be open from 10 to 4 all three days.  We’ll be making lavender-themed greeting cards and Artist Trading Cards.  Cost is $2 and no reservations are needed.

Visit the workshop and sign my email list and you’ll be entered for a drawing for a free class!

Hope to see you there.

Denny’s Workshop is opening on  Friday, July 1!

I am so excited to finally realize this dream.  Meanwhile, I am still putting supplies away, moving furniture, etc.  So many details.  I appreciate the patience many of you have had as I juggle learning how to use this blog, set up Square, and figure out what I’m doing.  Since this is a new venture, please check the blog often for changes and updates as I figure out what I am doing.

A couple of notes.  I am not a store in the sense that I have full time hours.  I will be open whenever I have classes scheduled and by appointment other times. On occasion I will be posting projects I am working on and invite you to come join me.

I am very open to ideas.  Say, you’d like a class on making polymer clay tile icons.  Talk to me about it and, if possible, we’ll pull the class together.  If I can’t teach it and there are several people interested, I’ll try to find a teacher willing to come in and teach from my workshop.  I’ve had requests already for drawing and painting classes and encaustic classes.  Let me know if you’re interested.
