Time: 2-4pm

Cost: Tuition $40 plus Kit $40

Designed by Lori from La D Da.

In this fun afternoon class, you start wth a 2 x 2 x 2 inch wooden cube with the scissor hole already drilled in it. We will paint the block and then decorate it. Cut & Paste! Included in the kit is a sheet with a selection of antique print designs for you to choose from to deocrate your block. With 20 different designs, each block will be unique as you add your favourites.

You kit also includes a piece of black silk ribbon and a button charm to make the scissor fob and a piece of felt for the bottom of the block.

Please note that the scissors shown in the photographs are not included in the kit but will be available for you to purchase. Or use your own favourite scissors.

What does Fraktur mean? Fraktur is a highly artistic and elaborate illuminated folk art created by the Pennsylvania Dutch, named after the Fraktur script associated with it. Most Fraktur were created between 1740 and 1860.

Fraktur drawings were executed in ink and/or watercolours and are found in a wide variety of forms: the Vorschriften (writing samples), the Taufscheine (birth and baptismal certificates), marriage and house blessings, book plates, and floral and figurative scenes. The earlier Fraktur were executed entirely by hand, while printed text became increasingly common in later examples. Common artistic motifs in Fraktur include birds (distelfinks), hearts, and tulips, as well as blackletter (Fraktur) and italic calligraphy. (Wikipedia)
