House of Wax Bar
I'm spending my Sunday studying and preparing for my class on Sunday August 5th at 6pm at the @houseofwaxbar. Bury Yourself: Pen Your Own Epitaph and Design Your own Gravestone! I am making little booklets with history, some common imagery, fun epitaphs, and more for my students. (that is so weird to write) Bury Yourself: Pen Your Own Epitaph & Design Your Gravestone
Inspired by 17th century Early American gravestones, create your own gravestone that reflects your philosophical attitude and aesthetics. The class will begin with a short history of Puritan gravestones, the beautiful epitaphs found on them and the most famous iconography that we know and love today. Following the short lecture, you will design and draw your ideal personalized gravestone using inspiration from images of existing carvings. You can also write your own poetic or comical epitaph into your design. All supplies will be provided (you are welcome to bring any dry materials to aid in your experience), along with a booklet of the lecture, gravestone icons, and well-known epitaphs to use as reference. All drawing levels are accepted!
Only a few spots are left!! The class is $50. Follow the Get Tickets link above and click through to the August 4th and 5th Weekend Workshop event.
I am so excited to be teaching my own class for the first time but it's so scary!! Thank you to everyone who has already purchased a ticket 🖤
