About This Class

Learn simple techniques on how to work with delicate, handmade cotton rag paper, gold leaf flakes and watercolor to create lovely place settings.

It is meant for those who already have a grasp on watercolor and/or calligraphy (if you're not there yet, scroll down for some resources) so you're able to take what you know and apply it to a chic, exquisite project. It's less of a lesson-based class, and more of a walk-through. The intent is that it will feel as though we're sitting down and creating together, so grab a glass of wine and let's get started.

Hey hey! I'm Peggy. I'm native to the Pacific Northwest and I love all things creative. From a young age I was dipping everything I could into the arts. I've dabbled in quite an abundance of varieties, such as ballet, fire dancing, crafting, graphic design, traditional calligraphy, hand lettering, painting with acrylics and watercolors, illustrating, creative writing, jazz, you name it. If it's something involving being artistic, I've probably cycled through it a time or two (or 700).
