Carve Out Time to Join us Next Year at Bare Knuckle Arts-Steal Like an Artist!

One of our favorite art books is Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon. It’s been out for awhile but definitely a great and inspirational book for all people trying to carve out some time to do art. It’s more about thinking and about self-initiated art making or creating. We invite you to join us Bare Knuckle Arts, in the upcoming 2019 year to carve out some time to make art, to create. There are lots of options from beginning painting classes, home school art, After School Monday and Tuesday Art classes for children. Thank you for this year and we hope to see you in the studio soon!!!

Meet Peg Larabell: She knows shoes, leather, and Moobuzz too!

Meet Peg Larabell; craftswoman, bee enthusiast, inventor.

In the mid 1970’s, craving the satisfaction of working with her hands, Peg started a small custom leather-goods business in Neenah, Wisconsin. She began making belts, bags, shoes and boots. She relished finishing her leather goods with stains and oils similar to the ones she used when she helped her dad with woodworking projects. In addition to her small leather goods business, Peg began keeping bees. Fascinated with honey, honey comb, and bee culture, she was soon providing friends and family with an abundance of honey. She was also collecting a fair amount of beeswax, a by-product of honey extraction.

Peg started Third Street Shoe-an awesome shoe/leather repair place. She has now moved into devoting the majority of her time producing this awesome leather product called Moobuzz. It’s all natural and makes old leather look new again. In addition, she’s out there teaching classes. She is coming to Bare Knuckle Arts, to teach a workshop on Unique Leather Key Fobs on Sunday Nov. 18th 1-3:30pm.

Handcrafted Soap is the Best, No Lye!!!

This is sure to be an amazing workshop with Laura from Madison Soap Company. She really knows her stuff. The first run thru made the studio smell fantastic.

Join Laura Daly from the Madison Soap Company in this soap making workshop. We will learn the basics of cold-process soap making, create 32 ounces of soap ($45 retail value) to take home with you to cure.

Soap making is a whole lot of chemistry, but also a lot of creativity. Some fun things you may want to bring with you to add to your soap mixture may include finely ground coffee, powdered clay, tea leaves, flower petals. For the top of your soap, you could bring fun things like a small pine cone, a favorite lego piece, a bouncy ball, some scrabble letters, or anything else small that would look incredible sticking out of your soap! I saw someone hide a 25 cent piece in their soap.!

Saturday Dec. 1st from 1-4pm $70 per participant Ages 15-Adult

Bring your own long rubber gloves but all other supplies provided.
