Artistic Bliss Designs

We couldn't be more excited to introduce you to our new workshop format offering 18 hours of learning and creative time with our amazing instructors over the course of three days! While there will be much time for relaxing and bonding with friends, new and old, we also want our lovely attendees to not feel rushed during workshops and have ample learning time. Workshops are taught "Affaire" style to everyone at once in our beautiful Boho ballroom. Everyone will be seated in advance at a table with friends of your choice or with a lovely new group of ladies, if you are traveling on your own.
Our class Itinerary includes a two hour opening night workshop with Sylvr Sharp, two four hour workshops with Marianne Machado and Robin Dudley Howes and an all day intensive workshop with Colleen Moody!
Scroll below to savor the beautiful projects our instructors have designed exclusively for this event.
We couldn't be more honored to share these talented artists with you and can't wait to see what everyone creates!

Let the excitement begin as we join Sylvr for our opening night workshop and create this beautiful unique wearable work of art. Sylvr will guide us step by step through the intricate yet achievable art of macrame as jewelry. We will be taught basic techniques that are easily mastered and can then be used to make a wide variety of items in the future. Have no fear of this exciting new art form as Sylvr will ensure your success in creating impressive results.

All materials are provided for the necklace including an 18” chain.


Bring your wild heart and join Colleen as she teaches our first ever all day intensive workshop! We will be creating the most darling of bohemian inspired fawns created exclusively for us. We will spend the first part of our day learning how to sculpt and shape a beautiful woodland fawn of our very own. However, in case your heart is skipping a beat at the thought, Colleen has already pre-made a fawn for you. Yes, two is always better then one. While we set our own fawns aside to dry, we will spend the next part of our day painting, learning how to make the perfect doe eyes and designing her charming dress and floral crown. Perching our sweetie upon a field of grass and flowers in her own special vase is the perfect finishing touch.

All the pieces for this beautiful assemblage are included in the workshop except for basic tools and a snippet of fabric and ribbon. You may want to bring your own treasures to make her your own.   

Join Marianne for this beautiful four hour workshop as we snip, scrunch, pinch, gather and stitch snippets of loveliness into our own dreamy fabric keepsake. Each of the stunning four pages is comprised of one-of-a-kind vintage treasures from Marianne's own collection ~ its beauty will make you take a breath!  
Work with 1910-1940's antique laces, trims, ribbons, chiffon yo yo’s, tassels, barkcloth, millinery, mops and rhinestone bling. Learn fabric printing and bonding with embellishment binding techniques. Assemblage, layering, simple stitching and the wonder of tiny details.  
All the pretties to create this project are included in this workshop but you may want to add any special keepsakes to your storybook to give it a personal touch.
Join Robin for our other four hour workshop and create a lovely bohemian symbol of hope. Flowers, feathers, pearls and lace all assemble together in this beautiful feminine version of a dream catcher. Known for her mad skills with crochet thread, Robin has turned this seemingly complicated woven "web" into the possible and will take us through the exciting process one twist at a time. Learn to make a beautiful floral composition to attach to your dream catcher that consists of paper roses, fluffy fabric and lace flowers. Sprinkled with dried flowers, lace and the most gorgeous pink feather, this will capture all your dreams and more.
Everything that is needed for this workshop is included but you may want to add any personal trinkets to make it your own.
