"Florals on Glass" Vintage Window Workshop Returning July 2022!
A short note from Laura... Thank you to everyone for your support during these continuing unusual times. It is always so great to see each of you in the workshops that I offer. You are my "why" for creating and offering these workshops. I can't begin to express the joy I feel when I hear the words "It's sooo cute!" repeated over and over through the workshop as students paint and put together all the pieces of a cute gnome, bunny, bee or decoupaged piece in a workshop. As I create the workshop projects, I will be adding them to the schedule...so please check back often! You may notice that I list workshop session ending time as "-ish". Those of you who have been in workshops with me know that the "ish" refers to this... I want you to have fun! You can stay on pace to finish on-time (and sometimes faster) or you can slow down a bit, hang out a little longer with some really awesome people, and enjoy your creative time and sharing it with others! Be the first to know about our new workshops by following Studio Primrose on Instagram and Facebook...And check back often so that Facebook will keep us in your "feed." As seating is limited, many workshops fill quickly. I'm working on offering "DIY at Home" kits. I will post them as soon as they become available. Please be safe and healthy! I'm looking forward to having fun making "pretty and cute things" with you! Blessings to all of you and your families...Laura
Join me for this fun workshop..."IOD Florals on Glass"! I am always amazed at the gorgeous windows created in this workshop! Each piece is unique to the person creating it. The workshop fee includes a new IOD transfer set (choose from the transfers pictured on the registration page), SINGLE-PANE vintage window, and "community use" of studio transfers to add embellishments to your window art. (Each session I have a new collection of SINGLE-PANE vintage windows from which to choose...small and large, chippy white, green, stained and more. Each one is distinctly unique and dependent upon the windows I can find.)
When registering for this workshop, there will be a menu option for each of the transfer choices...the quantity of each transfer in-hand now and set aside for this workshop is also noted here. To complete your registration, you will select the transfer you would like set aside for you. As the transfer sets differ in price, the workshop fee will be either $69 or $79 based upon the transfer you choose. These are all such gorgeous transfers...it can be a difficult choice! So that you can see the designs in their entirety, I have included both the front and back sides of the transfer packaging for each design on the registration page for this workshop.
The smaller transfer sets have 4 pages...the larger sets have 8 pages of individual elements to create a truly customized piece. I will be creating a window right along side of you using the "Painterly Florals" set to demonstrate how to design, layer and apply these to your window...as well as future projects. In the previous workshops, some students chose to use the entire transfer...others chose to use only portions of the transfers and keep the remainder to create other projects at home. PLEASE NOTE: THERE ARE ONLY 6 SEATS AVAILABLE IN THIS WORKSHOP. Especially during these very unusual and unpredictable times, some transfers can be out-of-stock with IOD. I have listed the quantity of each transfer design that I have in hand and set aside for this workshop. THERE ARE MORE TOTAL TRANSFER SETS AVAILABLE THAN SEATS. ONCE I AM NOTIFIED THAT THERE ARE 6 REGISTRATIONS, THE WORKSHOP WILL BE CLOSED. Therefore, PLEASE register early to set aside your 1st choice! THERE ARE NO REFUNDS ON THIS WORKSHOP. IF YOU NEED TO CANCEL, WE MUST BE NOTIFIED 48 HOURS PRIOR TO THE WORKSHOP TO RECEIVE CREDIT TOWARDS A FUTURE WORKSHOP. Call me if you have any questions!!! This is always such a fun and creative day! I can't wait to see you! WORKSHOP DATE: returning July 2022 This is always a fun and creative day!

I'm so excited to present to you the first "Handmade Christmas" workshop of the season.
Create your own mix of 5 ornaments to fit your holiday decorating or gift giving needs. The suggested mix is as listed below. I will have extras of all of the wood pieces on hand so that you can mix these up any way you would like!
There will be additional images to choose from for the decoupaged piece AND additional street sign sayings to exchange out as well...such as "Naughty", "Nice", "Ho Ho Ho" and a few other street signs. And lots of rusty and colorful bells, mini wood pieces, etc. to embellish your ornaments. Come ready to have lots of painting fun! Can't wait to see you! November 2021
I have to say that I had a lot of fun creating this set for the workshop! I wanted to offer something that could be displayed for both Halloween and the Fall season. And a really cool feature is that the jar "wood and floral seasonal decor set" is removable and can be changed out for all the seasons and holidays! Stay tuned for the soon-to-be released Winter and Christmas sets!
The workshop set includes: One thick block (4"x4") - Pre-stained black. You will decoupage both sides for Halloween & Fall One 4-1/2" Tall Ridged Jar (pre-painted black) To be "grunged" in the workshop One set of unfinished wood pieces with Fall florals One Leaf Garland (approx. 15" long - choice of fall leaves) Torn primitive fabric strips, rusty wire & "pip" garland
***Please note: The white pedestal is not included in this set.***
There will be a fabulous assortment of images to choose from for both the Fall and Halloween sides. As mentioned above, the wood block and ridged bottle will be pre-painted for you before the workshop so that you can have all the fun "grunging things up" in the studio. While your grungy bottle is drying, we will paint all of the decorative wood bits, add the natural florals, put together the leaf garland and dress up the bottle.
This is going to be one busy...and fun...workshop!
Once I saw the preview of the IOD Fall release products, I couldn't wait to get my hands on them! Since their arrival last week, my mind has been swirling with all the fun project possibilities! This Fall rustic sign is painted using the stunning "Fruitful Harvest" and "Sunflowers" stamp sets from Iron Orchid Designs. "Hello Fall" is stamped with the IOD "Farmhand" alpha stamp set. It was so much fun painting with all the gorgeous Fall colors!
I am so excited to be offering this workshop! I will be sharing and demonstrating the step-by-step layered painting and stamping techniques used to create this plaque...including my twist on how to use the "masks" included with many of the IOD stamp sets. In addition to this limited edition "Fruitful Harvest" stamp set, several other stamp sets will be available in this workshop for sharing to create your own unique sign... Sunflowers, branches, vines, florals and more!
This workshop is scheduled for 4 hours to give everyone the extra time to really enjoy the planning, layering and painting processes. I will be painting and distressing the boards in advance. (approximate board size 16" tall by 11" wide) You are welcome to bring coffee and snacks to power you through! I will look forward to seeing you!
PLEASE bring any snacks or drinks to keep you going! ***To maximize your workshop time, your piece should be cleaned and prepped before the workshop! Intro to Furniture Painting is not required. If you have any questions regarding your project, Laura asks that you contact her before the workshop to discuss your furniture piece and what you would like to accomplish. Project Ideas include: nightstand, end table, dining chairs, etc. We suggest that the size of your project piece should be approximately the size of your CARRY ON LUGGAGE SIZE! After talking with Laura, you may choose to bring a larger piece. However, please keep in mind that you may not be able to finish it during the workshop time.
