As of 2/25/18 I am currently NOT able to continue travel teaching this year as my husband is facing serious medical issues. Please keep your prayers going!
I wanted to post selection options for those who want me to travel teach. I will post photos and material cost. I am so excited to be on this journey and overwhelmed by those wishing me to come and share my passion with all of you!!
Most items I have in pattern form can be selected as a option to teach as long as the supplies are readily available at the time. You can find all of my patterns in my etsy shop as instant downloads. If you also click on the MORE section of the headed bar then click on drop down that says patterns you can view all.
Large group projects most times are a sculpt only class as the more students in the class the longer class takes and I go step by step and we do not move on till each person has completed each step. I do have a limit of no more than 25 students. example: I can teach the same class in my home studio to 8 students and teach the same class to 25 and we can get the entire project done with only 8 but the sculpting only done with 25. Size of group does matter when sculpting.
Now if your group is mainly all beginners you would want to keep this in mind when selecting a project. I wouldn't want anyone over whelmed. It is my UTMOST goal for everyone to go home happy with their project!!!!!!
What do students typically need to bring to class??
* Ruler * Parchment paper for a work surface * Basic clay tools ( I do sell a beginner set in my etsy store as well as my favorite tool a "Steel" blade. This is all you really need. Great substitutes are a xacto knife and a pencil. I can bring tools along if students wish to purchase. * Paint brushes (make sure to have a few old scruffy ones) if painting * Water basin (If painting) * Palette (if painting) * Paper Towels * Wipes * Leave all rings at home! clays and quikwoods will stick and ruin them!!
Note- If your group wants to reserve a specific date, I would need a contract signed and deposit made to HOLD the spot. I no longer HOLD specific dates and times without a signed contract. I cannot hold spots and turn down other request only to have a cancellation. This is strictly a business decision as this is my full-time job. Thanks for your understanding.
Please note these are supply cost only this does not include the teaching fees! Please understand sculpting is not a cheap art form! Most supplies are given to students at my cost and time to prepare them. My Travel Teaching contract is available thru e-mail request.
Prices are subject to change slightly if at any time my suppliers increase their cost to me.
Students also get my packets at cost to me to print only as my way of thanking those who love what I do! I also reduce cost of the tubes of quikwood for class projects.
It is my suggestion when selecting, for say a 3 day seminar it is best to start day one with a simpler project and build on that each day. I found this very helpful with lots of beginners.
Projects below are for 2018 travel teaching. (I am currently booked for 2018). I will be updating for 2019 travel teaching. Projects selected for 2019 travels be be only available that year for travel teaching. I will not be selling pattern packets that year on projects selected.
"Days Til Christmas" (intermediate level)
Supply cost includes packet $48 per student
Depending on group size this may be a sculpt only class and texture. I would bring along paints as well . (just in case)
"Thankful Tom" (beginner level)
Note* This is a project I have limited supply on those 3-5" pumpkins to pour. So option for this class would be first come first served. Your group could also pre-pour pumpkins if you have them available. I would deduct $ 3 off supply cost if you have them pre-poured. We could also substitute base with a Foam ball or cannon gourd but prices for those would vary??
Supply cost includes packet $33 per student (if using the concrete pumpkin)
Great project for a large group with many beginners!!! We would probably be able to complete project hopefully!!
"Thankful Blessing" Pilgrim couple! (Higher end of Intermediate)
Note- If wanting a 3 day seminar this would be great to start with the turkey Day#1 a beginner project then Day 2 & 3 do the pilgrims. Your group would have to have the concrete pre-poured for the turkeys.
Supply cost includes packet $ 48 per student per pilgrim.
This would make a great (2) day project. We would sculpt only! Day#1 Girl pilgrim Day#2 Boy pilgrim
"Olde Cinnamon Buns" (Beginner/intermediate) faces always step up the level I have taught many beginners and they do great!
Supply cost includes packet $35 per student
Last seminar I taught almost everyone completed entire project in 7 hours.
"Moonlight Magic" ( Intermediate Level)
Supply cost includes packet $ 57 per student
This would be a sculpt/texture only class!! Packet would include painting instructions.
Supply cost $30 per student Note- I DO NOT have a packet.
* Gourd (depends on availability at the time) prepped and wood burned with wire hanger.
"Gourdeous Santa" ( Intermediate/slightly advanced) To date my most sought after and taught class. I have taught many beginners who attempted this as their first class!
Supply cost includes packet $ 50 per student
This would be a sculpt only class! Does NOT include glasses and all the little xtras that is optional as most like to add their own. Some like glasses and some do not. I can supply these at a additional price feel free to inquire I can figure cost for xtras if someone wants a xtra KIT greenery can vary from what is in pic!!
Supply $40 per student Note- I DO NOT have a packet .
This would be a sculpt and texture class only!
"Take Time To Catch The Falling Leaves" ( Beginner/Intermediate Level )
Supply cost includes packet $ 56 per student
This would be a sculpt only class, packet would include painting instructions.
"Trick or Treat Hilda" Intermediate/slightly advance
Supply cost (No Packet) $42 per student
* (1) Tub of Apoxie Sculpt * (1) Bottle gourd * Glue * Sealer
This Is what I call a workshop class. No pattern!! We would sculpt the project and you would take home to paint as you wish.
I would supply a color photo of the project for you to take home.
Your group would have to have the pumpkins pre-poured with a can and ready to go plus one for the teacher. I would never be able to travel teach and haul all those concrete pumpkins. I am offering this as some might want this option.
"Miss Holly" Beginner
Supply cost includes packet $ 45 per student
Last seminar that did this project actually got to start painting. You would probably have to finish at home but the pattern does have painting instructions.
Supply cost includes packet $35 per student
Paint/sculpt may not get all painting done depends on group level and size.
"Flying School" Intermediate/Advanced
Supply cost includes packet $75 per student
*Supplies are numerous to list! Would include everything to sculpt this project.
This would be a 2 day sculpt only class. It took my small group two full days to sculpt this project. Not a beginner class for many beginners.
Directions are in packet to take home and texture and paint.
"What's Cookin " Santa Intermediate
Supply cost includes packet $ 48.00 per student
This would be a all day sculpt only, We wouldn't get texturing or painting done if large group.. Pattern packet would have instructions to take home and texture and paint. Just finished this class with 8 students and it was a push to get all sculpting done with just 8 students.
"Angel" Sheep Beginner
Supply cost includes packet $ 46 per student
This would be a sculpt , texture and we may start painting ? depends on size and level of group.
"Spring Is Sprung" Intermediate ( not overly difficult just lots of details)
I would recommend this as a 2 day class as we probably with a group not be able to get it all sculpted in a day?? We could sculpt/texture and begin and possibly finish this in two days.
Supply Cost (includes packet) $52 per student I have this photographed just not typed yet.
"Spring Scrub A Dub" Beginner/Slightly Intermediate
This is for both projects! We would sculpt (ONLY) both project in one day. Supply Cost for both projects with a packet $67.00
Note- The project above Spring is Sprung, you could possibly pick one of these to go with the 2-Day of sculpting. @ $33.50 for one soap dispenser with the other project. Just an idea.
"Ornament Sculpt" Your group could select 3 projects to sculpt in one day. This would be great for beginners. The ornaments below are NOT in pattern form this would simply be a sculpt workshop no pattern. ( i could type up painting instructions so they have to take home to finish, Build on sculpting skills. I will be working up supply cost and posting them soon.
The grouping of gourd birdhouses below I currently (DO NOT) have in pattern form. These will also depend on gourd availability at the time. Remember all gourds can vary in size and shape as well. I sometimes also have small groups wishing to have a paint only class as they do not want to sculpt. I would also offer this as a paint class and I would have each Gourd pre-sculpted for a extra charge as it does take me time to sculpt each one.
Intermediate/slightly advanced Definitely depending on gourd availability!! ( Note- would not offer this class as a paint only class!)
