Good day, dear reader! Might I interest you in in a chance to cultivate your cultural side? Would you be interested in indulging in a bit of art? If so, then indeed, the Midsouth gentle Makers will be hosting just the event for you! At Noon on the 10th day of September in the year 2011, it will be our pleasure to host a class on sculpture. Those in possession of minds sharp enough to participate can look forward to the opportunity to construct an elegant luna moth, such as the one represented in the following depiction:
This will be an intermediate level class, but it should prove simple enough for any clever rapscallion who genuinely wishes to participate. We are charging a paltry $20 per person to partake in this opulent opportunity. This cost must be pre-paid prior to the occurrence of the class, because the cost will go towards the procurement of the appropriate materials. Those of keen mind can sign up at the following link: http://www.midsouthmakers.org/events/
We encourage our participants to provide any extra embellishments they might wish to use to distinguish their sculptures. Specifically, the discerning sculptor might want to bring some flat backed cabochons, or “glass beads” as the Plebeians say, that can withstand temperatures of at least 300°F to embellish their creation. Lastly, were you to be so fortunate as to possess sculpting tools already, such as an acrylic rolling pin or brayers, we would humbly ask that you bring these along with you to the class. We sincerely look forward to the honor of your presence!
What is Twitter? Are tweets, tags, and other Twitter text causing you confusion?

Learn the basics with us in this fun and free class taught by an actual human being! We’ll be hosting the class at Republic Coffee (2924 Walnut Grove Rd) in their large conference room in the back.

Our next board meeting will be Monday May 9th at 7ish PM at the space. Any paid member is more than welcome to join us. Our board meeting format is a bit more formal than our regular meetings but don’t let that dissuade you from joining us if you’d like. The current agenda looks to be a lot of event planning discussion. If you’d like to help or have any ideas or if you’d be able to teach a class, feel free to stop by the board meeting and let us know. If you’re unable to make the board meeting and have some ideas about events or anything else, feel free to email the firstname.lastname@example.org
