Creative Workshop to Repurpose a Cigar Box at ‘The Hammered Edge’ Tomorrow

Local artist Lisa Fatone hosts a creative workshop titled, ‘Repurpose that Cigar Box into an Embellished Treasure Chest,’ on Sunday, April 26, from 1 to 4 p.m. at The Hammered Edge Studio & Gallery in Ivoryton.

Cigar boxes are available for $2 each, or bring your own. Fatone will have materials on hand, but bring anything sentimental you would like to incorporate into your creation. Suggested items are fabric, crystals, ribbons, feathers, photos, etc., and also bring your own glue gun, if possible.

Fatone, a graduate of the Paier College of Art and Albertus Magnus College in New Haven, CT., holds a Bachelor in Fine Art degree and  has worked as a graphic designer and studio artist since 1982.

She shares with her interpretations of what she sees in nature in several  different media including watercolor, collage, assemblage, hand-lettering, jewelry design and repurposed materials.

Admission per person is $40; prepaid by reservation only. Contact Kathryne Wright at 860-581-8058 or to make a reservation

The Hammered Edge Studio & Gallery is located at 108 Main Street Ivoryton, CT
