Skill Levels: All Levels
This class is an introduction to the favorite pastime of shell collecting & crafting during the Victorian period, which produced the beautiful octagonal shadowboxes filled with shell mosaics known as 'Sailors Valentines'. Students will learn how to creatively incorporate shells into personal art projects, such as jewelry, paperweights, pocketwatch treasures or shadow box mosaics in hopes of inspiring a contemporary revival in this art form. If one loves detailed, focused work that requires patience—they will find this media truly relaxing and gratifying. A $25 materials fee paid directly to the instructor includes a starter kit with tools, shells, glue, etc.
