The Altered Muse

Less than a year ago, Pam Grayson opened an eclectic and funky shop in Fort Worth. The Altered Muse is a great place to find unique pieces created by various artists, as well as vintage ephemera. Pam also invites different artists to teach an assortment of workshops. All classes are held on Tuesdays from 7-9pm. Below is a run down of the upcoming workshops that will be held at The Altered Muse. I will be attending Renea Hipp's wood block class & hope to see you there!

All Classes are $30 & include all supplies (with one exception below). You may bring anything that you want to personalize your art with (especially paper). Pam's healthy snacks and adult beverages always included.

May 19 - Renea Hipp - Workshop will include collaging altered blocks (2). One 2" and one 1-1/2". She will also deemonstrate how to do embossing and stamping on the blocks. All images, glue, blocks, embossing powder and use of stamps is included. You may want to shrink some personal images to the block size to add, but if not she has plenty to choose from.

May 26 - Carrie Gunning - Carrie's first class was a tremendous success. Her workshop on this date will be mixed media collage, but on a bigger canvas. Because of the multitude of supplies and the larger canvas, this class will be $40. You will not be disappointed. Carrie will be in Chicago in June presenting her art to Country Living Magazine as an entrepreneur.

June 2 - Michele Mayfield - Michele is an Altered Book teacher. She is going to do a class on altered crosses. Included in this class will be the cross, beads, jewels, ribbon, images, and other supplies you will need. You need not bring a thing to this workshop.

June 16 - Michele Mayfield - Altered Books. Several people have already signed up for Michele's two classes, so please let Pam Grayson know asap if you are attending.

In the very near future, The Altered Muse will be hosting a workshop where you can color and pour your own soaps. You will be able to choose from birds, seashells, or robins egg soap. Also, for all of you that attend at least one of the workshops up until June 16, Pam Grayson will be giving a FREE workshop on June 23. All goodies will be included!
