Memory Box Special Event ~ Coming Soon!

David Brethauer, Co-Owner and Designer for Memory Box
Will Be Teaching 2 Classes at Eclectica

Monday, August 1

David Brethauer and his wife, Monica are the co-owners of Memory Box Stamps. Dave is also the designer for the stamps for Memory Box. We are so excited that he will be at Eclectica on Monday, August 1 to teach not one, but two classes for us.

Each class is about 2 hours long and there will be approximately an hour between the classes for a quick dinner or snack.

The classes are $40 each, but customers who sign up for both classes will receive a $10 store credit to be used on the day of the Memory Box classes.

Class Descriptions:

Memory Box Holiday Colored Pencils   3:30pm-5:30pm
Come and learn about color, blending and shading while using Memory Box images and papers and our latest dies! Each student will make 5 cards using colored pencil techniques that will make you color like a pro. We'll put color to work in analogous and complementary color schemes to really make your greeting cards stand out!

Memory Box Watercolor   6:30pm-8:30pm
This fun class teaches watercolor through watercolor paints and watercolor pencils. Learn the advantages of each watercolor media and get some helpful tips for applying watercolor to greeting cards. Try out different types of watercolor paper while learning washes and blending techniques. Each student will create 5 cards in an informative and supportive teaching style.

Dave will be using brand new products from Memory Box's What's in the Box Fall/Christmas release which is scheduled to ship to stores in July.

Dave will provide colored pencils, watercolors and brushes. He asks that each class participant bring a paper trimmer, scissors and a strong double sided adhesive tape
