Artist Trading Coins with Linda Edkins Wyatt
Wednesday, August 21, 2019 7:15PM - 9:30PM
If you like Artist Trading Cards, you’ll love Artist Trading Coins! These 2.5” round mini artworks are fun to make, collect and trade. In this class, we will use a variety of mixed media techniques to make unique, individualized creations. They can be displayed on a tiny easel, or added to other mixed media work such as tags, cards, banners or frames. They can be easily transformed into magnets or, with the addition of a small hole and cord, they make eye-catching pendant necklaces.
Cost: $ 38.00
