Poets & Painters & Cakes!

Hello, Southern Oregon friends!
This soggy January day seemed a good time to think of something sweet on the near horizon & so…Mindy Carpenter & I are happy to announce another

 Poets & Painters workshop at Pennington Farms

…this time¬†featuring their decadent¬†cakes!¬†At our last workshop at Pennington’s, we spied some swanky cakes beneath glass cloches & decided that we wanted to paint (& eat!) them, too.
Here’s one of Mindy’s delightful cake paintings:

In addition to your spacious painting time, I will give you an easy prompt for crafting a poem inspired by the confections. Zero pressure! And you¬†do not¬†have to read anything aloud. This workshop is more like a “playshop”; it’s all about having fun ūüôā
So grab a friend (or a Valentine!) and come play with us:
When: Saturday, February 10 from 11-3 pm
Where: Pennington Farms | 11341 Williams Highway | Grants Pass, OR 97527
Cost: $95 per person (includes all painting & writing supplies, coffee, & plenty of cake! Savory treats will be available for purchase)
Register:¬†Email me at¬†[email protected], let me know how many people you’re bringing, & I’ll send you payment info.
You’ll leave the workshop with a finished 8″ x 10″ painting, a poem & a satisfied sweet tooth ūüėČ
Space is limited, so register soon!
PS: If you’re looking for an original¬†Valentine’s¬†gift, you can create one during the workshop…or give the workshop itself as a gift!
