Inspiration. Product know how. DIY goodness. Sound like your beat? If you're looking for something fun while in Waco, our workshops are a great idea. We show you how to make what's in the class, but better yet, you get to take it with you.For anyone who hasn’t used the IOD Décor Stamps, they are essentially what they sound like. A stamp. Similar to a stamp that you might’ve used as a child- but magical. The IOD Décor Stamps have the power to transform an item that you found on the side of the road to an item that you will have to convince your husband you didn’t spend your entire monthly budget on. Yeah, that good.In this class, you will be making (3) kitchen or hand towels. 2 cotton towels and one fine linen towel. They are a hot seller in the shop, but to be honest, its way more fun to make your own (and cheaper!)We have been on the Travel Channel, Fox News and will be on a local Waco Morning Show.

This is a bit of a drawing class, a bit of a painting class and a bit of a sculpture class. We start by making our own brushes from a variety of found materials (branches, twigs, grasses, sponges, twine, etc.) based on the kinds of marks each student is interested in making (delicate, bold, brushy). These often turn out to be beautiful artifacts in and of themselves. When the brushes are made, we'll begin to draw with inks and paints and examine how our movements affect the marks and the final works that are made. This class has always been popular because it's so personal and unique. Plus, the artwork is exceptional.•Class is 3 hours long.•All materials are provided.•For All Skill Levels.•We can arrange to ship final products to you

Return to a time when the mob ran Galveston and their guests were treated as if they were family. When you crossed the bridge you enter "The Free State of Galveston," where the only rules were mob rules. The stars of the era were world class entertainers brought in to perform in the casinos, including Frank Sinatra, Sammy Davis Jr., and Dean Martin. Everyone was enjoying their own "Vegas Dream" right here in Galveston.
