Design Camp is Back!!!!

Posted by

What an amazing month it has been of Design Camp Classes and FANTASTIC Design Camp guest bloggers! A huge thanks goes out to all who participated including my 26 campers and all the friends who have been so generous with their time to be virtual camp counselors and make this month of “design camping” so much fun!!!!

Because the response to my camp was so overwhelming (we sold out in a week), I’m going to keep it going!

So here’s your chance to get up close and personal with me and learn about all things design.

On Saturday September 18th, I will have a weekend version of my Design Summer Camp. So for all you out-of-towners, or in-towners for that matter, that were wanting to come to camp, we’re giving you a chance.  We will do all 8 hours of the basic camp in a fun-filled day in my gallery and studio.

This one-day intensive course will feature topics like:
• Design 101 – the basics of furniture placement, paints, finishes and more

• Finding Your Inspiration – how to research design blogs, books and magazines and create an inspiration board

• Accessorizing With Style – all about fabrics, soft furnishings and those important finishing touches

• Getting Bang For Your Buck – learn how to decorate without breaking the bank

Price for the Weekend Camp is $500 again and we’ll have good eats and a few treats. We will do a lot of learning and have a lot of fun! Now hurry up and call 501-868-9882 or email today, we have a few spots already filled and space is limited to 25 campers again. If you are coming from out of town, we can answer any questions you have about travel or hotel accomodations.

Then beginning on October 12th, we are going on a Fall camping excursion (back to my gallery and studio of course) with a 6 week in-depth camp.  It will be each tuesday evening through November 16th from 6:00-8:30 pm and will include topics like:

• Design 101 Recap– reviewing the basic principles for creating great design
• Advanced Design Tips – taking your design project to the next level
• Inspiration to Reality – how to sketch, draw and get your creative ideas on paper
• Going Green (And We Don’t Mean the Color) – how to incorporate vintage, antique and eco-friendly finds to create gorgeous décor that’s kind to the earth
• Art Smart – collecting, framing and hanging art to complement your interiors
• Holiday Entertaining With Style – from tabletops to gift wrap, all the details to create truly inspired holiday decor

This course is $750. It’s the same price per session, just 2 weeks longer and will be packed full of informative design tips, DIY projects, homework, contests, yummy food and more. And what you may not know is we have a secret blog that each design camper gets a password to, so in addition to the in-class time, there is a lot of extra communication and information that happens each week between classes.

Want to be a part of this fun, fall design session?  You better hurry! Many of our campers from the Summer camp have already signed up.  This session is also limited to 25 campers so get your seat today! Call us at 501-868-9882 or email to reserve your spot.

I highly recommend you take the basic camp before the Fall session if possible, so you can get up to speed on all my Design 101 tips and topics before we move on to more advanced design skills! But don’t worry if you can’t, Basic Camp is not required before signing up for the Fall session.

Can’t wait to see you in one of my design camps soon! And don’t miss our last Design Summer Camp blog post below from my BFF Molly of Molly’s Paperie.  Happy Camping!

  7. […] all Tobi’s fault. Ever since I started working with her, it’s been one grand idea, one huge project after another. Boy, are we having fun. But boy, does my head feel like it’s going to explode. […]
