The 10th of January 2009 (Sold Out)
The 31st of January 2009 (Spaces Still Available)
10:00 AM - 8:00 PM
If you long to be inspired by the enchanting fashion and art of the 1770's, please come join us as we create our own Le Petit Trianon and step back in time to celebrate the life and excesses of Marie Antoinette, Queen of France. Our day long journey will include the creation of an artistic journal in the style of our dear Dauphine that will possibly hold your own secret wishes and desires, a delicious royal tea luncheon, French inspired creative art exchanges, an elaborately embellished mask and the culmination of our festivities with an evening masked ball fit only for a Queen.
Descriptions de Classe
Notre artiste extrodinaire, Madame Candice Carpenter, a true connoisseur of all that is Marie, will lead us through two exclusive projects: an opulent vintage inspired art journal and an elegantly embellished mask, both influenced by her royal highness, Marie Antoinette. Your savory collection of supplies for these one-of-a-kind creations will include exquisite velvet trims, heavenly textiles, fluffy and authentic ostrich feathers, flocked fabrics, Swarovski crystal accents, dainty paper fleurs, ornate embellishments, vintage ephemera, an exclusive Marie Antoinette inspired clip art collection designed by the one and only Hope Wallace, scrumptious pattern papers, a Wendy Addison glass glittered Eiffel Tower ornament, a vintage inspired ledger book and more. Imagine gold leafing, rouge roses and fleur de lis, turquoise flocking and pink fluffy feathers, silver tarnished glass glitter accents, frosted cakes and pink champagne embellishments, classical fonts and historic fashions. These projects will satisfy the queen in all of us. Only the most luscious and authentic supplies will be featured.
After we finish our creations, all that is left to do is make some memories with them. . .all the while sipping pink champagne and giggling with good friends.
