a workshop this sunday + what's new

Just a little note to mention there are a few spots left in my Rose de Granville workshop this Sunday morning at Handcraft Studio School in Emeryville. I'm excited to teach this single subject class. There was a lot of interest in this class, so look for more single flower classes in the spring, I'm thinking ranunculus!

Lately I have been trying my hand at some new smaller scale flowers, like a better ranunculus and David Austin and other garden roses. I just spent a week making headpieces for San Francisco Magazine that may or may not make it into the final spread of an editorial photo shoot they shot in Carmel earlier this week. I hope they use at least one of them, they were a TON of work! Until I make a page for my smaller work on my papel SF website, you can always scroll through my Instagram feed to see what I'm up to, if you are so inclined! I am @tiffanieturner. Those headpieces are now back and up for sale in my Etsy shop, if you want to take a gander. 

Next week I am preparing for my teaching trip to L.A. The all-day workshop at French General is almost full. I am very excited to get away and also to see French General. I hope I don't spend ALL my earnings there. When I return I am going to see about doing some fundraising through Kickstarter or some such thing to help fund an exhibit I've been invited to do on the East Coast this summer. I am horrified of making a video for the campaign, but I really cannot go much further with my work until there is a little money behind it.

Finally, for anyone still reading, I am talking to a friend about doing a book. A paper book filled with flowers and more. I think it's time. Apparently, the more public support I have behind this idea, the better I will do when submitting my proposal. So I am taking screen shots of every wonderful comment on Instagram and saving the emails I get requesting me to teach from all over the place, building my case. Those comments matter, I guess! Maybe this would be a good time to see if you would be interested in a flower (and other) paper art book written by yours truly. I'd love to hear from you, and it can only help!

Okay, that's all for now. Have a great weekend, and thank you as always for reading! 



the paper playhouse winner!

Happy Monday, everyone! I just ended a brutal week of non-paying work (what's new) that will hopefully turn into something great, but no guarantees. I am looking forward to resting my hands for one day here after a nice 12 hour sleep last night. I hope you are all doing well!

We have a winner of my giveaway of Katrina Rodabaugh's beautiful new book, The Paper Playhouse. Generated by an online random number generator, the winner is "Emily Marlise". I have no information from you, Emily Marlise, but I have a sneaking suspicion I might know you. So, send me an email at sfcornerblog at hotmail dot com and we'll get the book sent off to you pronto!

Thank you to all who entered. I'll be back soon, lots to share.



los angeles workshops!

I am really excited to announce that I have THREE Valentine's Day themed workshops I will be teaching at French General in Los Angeles on February 6th and 7th. I cannot wait to finally visit Kaari, Robert and the gang and see all the beautiful wares there. I will probably spend all the money I make teaching there before I leave!

If you live in the area, I would love to see you! And, if you have friends in Los Angeles that you think would enjoy these great workshops, spread the word! It would be great to fill these classes to make the trip even more worthwhile.

Here are the links to register for each of the three workshops. Also, I will be teaching the rose de Granville class at Handcraft Studio School on February 1st. You can sign up for that class HERE.
