The Make and Take Ladies Make Crowns

Hi Folks, Lora here to share a fun experience I recently had teaching a class on making the wonderful Crown designed by Gypsy Soul Laser Cuts.
I teach a crafty class the last Friday of every month called Make and Take. It's a three or four hour class with a different art project from month to month. I supply all the bits and pieces for each project and the skills needed and everybody goes home with a completed project.
The classes are usually held at The Reynolds Homestead, which is a Commonwealth Campus Center of Virginia Tech.
This month we had our first ever class at the Creative Arts Center, an extension of Reynold Homestead located downtown.
It was a great success!

Some prepping was done before hand. I spray painted all the component parts of the crowns....
It was a beautiful sunny day. Perfect for painting outdoors.
Setting up some of the supplies....
A couple of my 'regular' ladies and a new generation came to play as well.
 There was some intense crafting going on....
And lots of hamming for the camera.
A couple of cutie pies.
A detail shot of one of the lovely creations. There were lots of varied supplies used from Mardi Gras beads to sea shells and of course, GLITTER!
The Royal Wave was practiced.
And everybody had a go trying on the teachers sample crown....
It was a great class and it never ceases to amaze and delight me at the end of the day when everyone is finished, how different all the projects are.
A line up of some of the Ladies looking pretty majestic...
Thank you, Gina for letting me share this experience with everyone. It's a joy and privilege to be a part of this creative journey!

Of course, the item we all had in common is the Crown.
There were also;
Mardis Gras beads
Acrylic Paints (both Liquitex and Apple Barrel)
Flat back crystals
Silk and paper flowers
Sea shells
Luminarte Radiant Rain Color Concentrates
Dimensional fabric paint
