You are cordially invited to join us November 7-10, 2013, in Pasadena, California, as we gather together at the beautiful and historic Langham Huntington Hotel for “Spellbound”… a truly beautiful and uplifting weekend of art and inspiration. Make precious memories and “forever friends”. Create your dreams…
We will begin our long weekend on Thursday evening, November 7th, with a lovely Welcome Dinner, featuring a very special keynote speaker and a gorgeous group project. Swaps will be exchanged after dinner, wrapping up our first evening with loads of excitement and camaraderie!
Friday morning we will begin a day filled with amazing classes taught by some of the most talented and innovative artists working today! Truly a “dream team”. Morning classes are from 8-11 am, and will be followed by a super-quick boxed lunch, which will be provided by the hotel, and is included in your registration. There are two afternoon class sessions, followed by our very special “Dreamland Mercantile” from 6-10pm. Light cocktail fare will be provided, as we shop the gorgeous artwork and coveted supplies offered by our amazing vendors!
Saturday will begin with another morning class session, followed by a wonderful luncheon. Classes then continue throughout the afternoon. We will cap off this super-busy day with an optional “Up All Night” craft party from 8pm-12am in the ballroom. Participants will receive a light meal and lots of sponsored projects and giveaways!
Sunday morning, November 11th, we will roll up the luxury buses and begin shuttling attendees to the world-famous Rose Bowl Flea Market, a mere 10-minute drive away! What a wonderful way to conclude your Spellbound weekend!
