"Nature's Treasures  Prayer Flags"
(a couple of spaces remain)

It's very interesting to learn how these flags  are hung in doorways to bless all who pass under them as they fluttered in the breeze....

 I think the idea of a Nature's Treasures Prayer Flag is perfect since nature is so fragile and fades away before our eyes.  So I am hoping these little blessings will help preserve all the beautiful aspects of nature for us to enjoy!
These little flags we are going to make are all hand stitched!  

The embellishments will make them very special & Susan will teach you many embroidery stitches, embellishing ideas & simple ways to put these little flags together by adding bits of lace and trims.  Hopefully we will make three little flags in class.  There will be a  kit provided with the class from Susan however there will be a list of some additional things to bring along.
$80. 10am till 4pm

5 year Anniversary 
of Random Arts (at THIS location) coming up in September!!!


Some of you remember us when we started in business on 
Main Street in Saluda in 1995.
Here we are 21 years later, with our very own building,
3 private parking lots, a studio space for workshops
and a store full of the coolest merchandise ever.

We never need a reason to celebrate here
 but this sounds like as good a reason as any...
Details coming soon.

What? You aren't doing macrame any more? Not using all those rubber stamps any longer? Are you tired of storing all that scrapbook paper? 


Take this opportunity to get rid of those unwanted items and make some money for the holidays. 
9-4 pm on Sat. Oct 14th is your opportunity to "cash in". 
Not only are the vendors happy with the outcome but the buyers flock to this event to get bargains. 
This past may someone from came Florida with a car full of craft supplies to sell  and she was so happy to go home with an empty car and a pocket full of cash.
We will need at least 10 vendors to make this happen, so the sooner you commit to doing this the sooner we can finalize the plans.

"Wild is the Child" Mixed Media

Artist Kate Thompson
Sat. & Sun. Nov 5th & 6th 2016
In this class Kate will be teaching several different paintings, working with vintage children photos. Kate says, "I was really drawn to some of these old photos, some of which are orphans. I wanted these children to be protected and the only protection I felt was heartfelt was their animals and pets."
 
We will be creating images of these children with their animal headdresses and portraits of the same, as well as creating stories to go along with these paintings. These stories will be tucked away in a little envelope attached to the art.
The techniques and supplies we will be using are watercolors, gesso, linseed oil , charcoal and oil bars on watercolor paper and vintage ledger paper.

A complete supply list will be emailed after registration is complete.

 Great Selection of COLORING BOOKS NOW ON SALE!!!
Who Colors? Why do we color? When do we color?
In simplest terms, coloring has a de-stressing effect because when we focus on a particular activity, we focus on it and not on our worries. 
"I recommend it as a relaxation technique," says psychologist Antoni Martínez. "We can use it to enter into a more creative, freer state," he assures. We can also use it to connect with how we feel, since depending on our mood we choose different colors or intensity. "I myself have practiced that. I recommend it in a quiet environment, even with chill music. Let the color and the lines flow."
