Oakland Location
Join us for a one of a kind treat....a workshop located at Lana Kloch's magical home in the hills of Oakland. We'll be working amongst Lana's exquisite vignettes of French flea market finds and collectable art, creating our own set of 4 dessert plates, perfect for holiday entertaining or gift giving. Anna will provide a set of dishes and plenty of paper ephemera to inspire your collages set beneath glass. We'll work with composition and technique and finish each plate (petite art piece! )with a polished gold backing. To top off this wonderful afternoon, Lana will be providing a sumptuous lunch, inspired by the fact that she will have just returned from Paris!
Sign up early....space will be limited.

This project can be used as a festive party centerpiece or imaginative gift.
