Hi beauties! Now that Isle of Tease has wrapped, I can announce that i’m going to be offering this crafty, hands-on, beginner pastie-making class to a limited number of participants on Sunday, December 15th, in the Glanford area.
To register, please etransfer to firstname.lastname@example.org, including the name I might know you by!
You know what makes an awesome holiday gift? Sparkly nipples!!
The class fee will be $50.00, and will include everything you need to design and make a pair of basic tasselled pasties in your choice of size and colour.
I’d like to focus on basic round pasties for this class, as we made a variety of shapes and styles the first time around and ran out of tassel-making time.
I will also include fun paints and up to 2 gross of rhinestones per participant in your choice of size and colour to embellish your designs with, and if you want additional stones to really oomph up your design, they will be available for purchase.
If you could bring your own scissors, hot glue gun, and e6000 fabrifuse, that would be super, otherwise we can share.
You will leave with an awesome pair of your own pasties!
If financial barriers prevent you from attending, please reach out and we will get you a spot.
Class is open to anyone interested, but won’t be suitable for little ones.
Will also organize ride-sharing once we know who is attending.
My bona fides…
