Events at Multiplicity – Meetups, Trunk Shows, Craft Parties and More
April Multiplicity Meetup
Multiplicity invites you to our regularly scheduled get together, the ‘Multiplicity Art Studio Meetup’, on April 15th, 2023. The evening will begin by mingling and munching on thoughtfully procured goodies prepared by our resident foodie, Joan Gottlieb Mendell. Soon after, we will briefly talk about a hand-picked group of unique and creative upcoming visiting artists we’ve booked for 2023 – Ace McCasland, Zac Tedrow, Annie Lockhart, Jodi Ohl, Suzanne Williams and Deb Karash.
Next comes our featured artist of the evening! Drum roll please…. Susan Small.
Susan is the owner of Multiplicity Art Studio and practices art in many different mediums including painting, floral arranging, fiber arts, leather working and jewelry making. She currently spends half of her time in Colorado where she teaches workshops and sells her jewelry & art at Lincoln Gallery, in Loveland. While in Texas, she spends her time at Multiplicity Art Studio either supporting the business, instructing students, or participating in workshops taught at the studio by visiting artists.
With spring in the air, Susan thought it would be fun to share how to make three dimensional colorful flowers from shrink plastic. What once was known only as Polyshrink, a kid’s craft supply, takes on a whole different appearance when you elevate it from its normal two dimensions. By working the material while it is still warm, you can form it in a variety of ways to achieve very different results. You can make tiny flowers to hang on a necklace or earrings, create multi-layered flower blossoms, create a woven armature that perfectly fits the bend of your wrist to use as a colorful backdrop for a beaded bracelet component, create faux roman glass, or even create your own cabochons to use in your jewelry pieces. The possibilities are endless. What once was just a letter-sized piece of plastic sheeting can become whatever your mind can imagine. Come see for yourself! Those who would like to play a little will be able to create a couple of tiny flowers at the end of Susan’s demo.
We hope you can join us at this special quarterly event. It’s going to be so much fun.
See you then!
