Wed, 01/26/2022 - 11:57am admin
Create a personalized, rustic, farmhouse, windmill at this workshop in February. West Plains Council on the Arts (WPCA) will host the workshop, conducted by local artist Tara Shahan, on February 15, 6:30-8:30 p.m. at the Trillium Trust offices, 1376 Bill Virdon Blvd. in West Plains. Cost for the workshop is $45, all supplies included.
In this class you will create a personalized rustic farmhouse windmill. You will learn to paint a faux rust technique and stencil your personalization onto your windmill. Your windmill can be hung above the mantel, over a door or window. Whatever your homestyle, you'll enhance the look of it when you display your classic farmhouse landmark inspired home decor wall art. Measures approximately 16".
About the instructor: Tara Shahan was raised in a small town in the Appalachian foothills of southern Ohio until about the age of 12. Her upbringing included being a member in the Patchworkers 4-H club, where most of her projects consisted of food, sewing and crafts taught by her mother, a 4-H leader. Shahan won ribbons for her work at local and state fairs, including an award for Outstanding of the Day at the Ohio State Fair. Shahan now lives in West Plains.
"For the most part I have created things for my own home but now have decided to share those things that I create and cherish so much," says Shahan. "My passion is for what they are calling these days - rustic, primitive and farmhouse. Most of my items have been upcycled from a vintage piece or made from a common household item. This is what inspires me. Of course, I love frequenting vintage resale shops and antique stores for my inspirations, so most items that I make are pre-loved and show wear. DIY is a way of life in the Midwest. Thou art blessed who 'rescues' unwanted items!"
