Make a work of art using 80% recycled materials that I provide. FLOOF Collage pARTy! is a free-thinking zone where anything is possible. The sky's the limit. Chat a minute about freeing your artistic soul. Exchange possible ideas. Gather materials and tools. I have just about every tool and every art medium available. Choosing the materials is like a treasure hunt. Snack and sip your beverage of choice while you make your work of art. If the weather is conducive, we gather our makings in the studio and then proceed outdoors to my large deck, where we are inspired by an acre of woods and a creek with lots of wildlife and old growth trees. There is a treehouse and a trampoline, along with climbing ropes, swings, a slide, and other gymnastic equipment if a physical break is needed during art-making.
As a child, I was an artist wanna-be. At 8, I took my first art lesson & dreamt of designing fashion. My parents did not believe in art school. I took art lessons at age 40, auditing a drawing class as a Cornell spouse. Parenting, teaching & nursing took me into my 50’s, when I pursued my interest in art again. I made fascinators & Renaissance hats. For 10 years I sold them in the US & Canada. By then I had an art studio filled wall-to-wall with recycled materials sorted by color. At FCp!, I guide folks to indulge their creative tendencies in a non-judgmental, fully accessible studio.

No experience or talent is required to make art with me. Just bring your bravery & willingness to try something exciting & new. My studio is a no-judgement zone. There is no wrong move in making art. The process is as important as the product, & you may come away with something amazing to take home.
