Let Laurie Davis, the Glitter Fairy, take you on a journey through the medium of glitter! We all played with glitter as a kid, now it’s time to have some fun with it as adults at Glitter 101! At this two hour workshop, Ms. Davis will discuss the history of glitter, where it comes from and how it’s used. Then she will instruct the group on how to create her signature glitter pear ornament complete with leaf, bow and hammered brass hook. She will also instruct on how to create a fun holiday gift tag and how to display the ornament in a gift box. All materials including gift tag and box are included in the workshop price. Each student will leave with his or her own handcrafted glitter pear ornament perfect for gift giving or keeping!

Laurie Davis is a former Art Teacher and Graphic Director with a BFA from Syracuse University. She has appeared several times on NBC’s The Martha Stewart Show, The Katie Brown Workshop and Pet Talk. Her passion for design and nature led her to create a full-time business, and for over 17 years she has embellished faux fruit, veggies, dragonflies, bumblebees, sea stars and other shapes with a dusting of glitter, transforming them into much coveted seasonal decorations. Ms. Davis’ handcrafted ornaments and cards are sold throughout Connecticut, Maine, Virginia and in her etsy shop: https://www.etsy.com/shop/GlitterWorksStudio. Her lovely glittery globe ornaments can be found in the Norwalk Historical Society Museum Gift Shop.
