On the second Friday of the month, MIXXER's esteemed member and experienced instructor, Linda Starkey offers her craft-y knowledge and skills to friends and community members in casual, entry-level and fun creative explosions. This is a hands-on and engaging event that anyone at any skill level is welcome to attend. All supplies provided.
This maker experience is suitable for 16 years old and older. Make stuff while making friends!
On Aug 13th, Linda will lead you making eclectic pockets for your multimedia journal. You will build off the design skills you have learned or develop new ones to create these holders for your artist journals.
Each of these creativity get-togethers teaches you techniques and design skills that will lead up to an intermediate maker experiences series in December & January creating your own unique multimedia journal!
Instructor Bio: Pursuing, appreciating, absorbing, and honing creative skills and techniques is Linda Starkey’s life. Her passion for arts and crafts was sparked at age four when her mother showed her basic embroidery stitches and handed Linda thread, a needle, a hoop, and a blue-stamped dresser scarf. It started Linda on a lifelong journey of continual learning about every type of art or craft that came her way: crocheting, knitting, cloth dolls, basketry, stained glass, quilting, decoupage, rubber stamping, painting, mindful doodling (a.k.a. Zentangling), and woodworking, to name a few. Mixxer made it possible for Linda to learn other skills that she uses to make special products to sell in boutiques. With a life’s worth of crafting adventures and artistic pursuits in her toolbox, experimenting with multimedia provides hours of fun and sometimes some really awesome outcomes, some of which reside in galleries, museums, boutiques, and the jewelry boxes of friends and family.
