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.

Sherie Hurd: “La Petite Artiste”

Sherie Hurd recently finished this French inspired project. She writes,

“For the past year or so, I have purchased quite a few C’est La Vie kits [True2Scale] as well as lighting components as I work on finishing and furnishing a quarter scale piece that incorporates the best of the best – the late Karen Cary’s French Quarter Vieux Carre and a variety of small scale furniture and accessory artists extraordinaire, along with a dear friend’s (Bill Gittins) fine art.

Karen’s Vieux Carre structure had signage for “La Petite Artiste,” and I always envisioned including a piece or two of Bill’s work. (My husband and I own several in real life, so naturally those would be fun to incorporate.) Then came the Santa Rosa wildfires almost a year ago, and Bill Gittins and his wife, Pat, lost their home along with all of the pieces Bill had painted for Art Trails later that month. Suddenly, La Petite Artiste became the showcase for the Gittins Gallery.

[La Petite Artiste] also showcases an art table and easel kits by Robin Betterley, flowers and plants by Susan Karatjas, and several table kits by Karen Benson. There are two adorable little shih tzus by Barbara Ann Meyer.”
