Since you asked:

"Therefore, to be possess'd with double pomp, to guard a title that was rich before, to gild refined gold, to paint the lily,
to throw a perfume on the violet, to smooth the ice, or add another hue unto the rainbow, or with taper-light
to seek the beauteous eye of heaven to garnish, is wasteful and ridiculous excess."

~William Shakespeare,
ca. 1595

Yup, that's us.

Your class fee with Christine includes a $20 kit fee, which will include all the essentials for your shadow box (see “Included in your kit” below). Christine encourages students to bring a focal element and any other materials that would be meaningful to incorporate into their project. Christine has supplied a list of items to bring and some possibilities for inspirations. This is a mixed media creation that you can incorporate almost anything into! The beautiful beadwork you see on Christine’s sample in the store is an example of her beautiful French wired and beaded flowers. You’ll also see by looking at her shadow boxes that old bits of jewelry, lace, papers, and other fripperies make a wonderful addition to your project.

Christine will also include an instruction booklet for you to take home that is crammed with inspiration you can refer to on your artistic journeys! In preparation for the class, please feel free to visit Christine’s blog ( and flickr account to see more examples of her work. For complete details including materials list, see the class blog at
