                            Images Announces Another Floorcloth Workshop
     The most popular of all the events sponsored by the Images Gallery in Moreland so far are the Floorcloth Workshops conducted by Trisha Adams.  In fact, I have lost count of  how many have been held so far.  Anyway, here is the information on the latest one being held just in time for doing something with it for Christmas.

Just in time for Christmas! A gift for you or someone you love. Floorcloth Workshop at IMAGES Studio. What is a Floorcloth? It is an area rug that you design and create yourself and it is just so much fun to do. You can also use it as a wall hanging if you decide it is just way too pretty to walk on. Located at 21 Main Street Moreland. Where Fun and ArtCollide! Reserve your spot today! Last class until 2008!

Instructor, Trisha Adams has been creating Custom Canvas Floorcloths locally for the past 4 years.   In addition, she is a watercolorist.     This 5 hour workshop will cover the basics of creating your own canvas floorcloth.   This is not a "paint-a-long"; each student will create their own original design.  Your instructor is happy to help out with drawing, layout, and painting if necessary - but promise not to paint on your floorcloth unless you ask her!


Be prepared to paint hard, laugh a lot and go home with a beautiful piece of Floor Art!  Bring a drink and your lunch, we'll only break for a half an hour to eat!
