Pie Pickup Workshop with Carol Kubrican

1/4 Scale Pie Pickup Workshop – Feb. 2, 2019 

Join in on the fun and create your own pie pickup! Participants will paint a 3D printed truck and stools, work with decals and fabric, and learn some helpful tricks for finishing. All of the accessories shown are included. You may pre-order the kit to create and landscape the base for an additional $8. There will be some painting pre-work. This will be shipped to you at the beginning of January, so that you’ll have a whole month to prepare for our day of fun. The plan is to finish the pie pickups in the workshop, or come very close to it!

Cost $145 (includes lunch, shipping and misc. supplies). The optional base kit is $8. Your space will be reserved after payment has been received (PayPal, personal checks, and money orders).

Register here. If you register and are unable to attend the workshop, a workshop kit will be mailed to you.
