This is a 6 day class, and includes an expensive piece of wood.

The clock is quite tall at around 73" in height.  For ease of painting it comes in three parts.  The bottom measures 10" x 7" x 19", the middle section is quite long at 5.5" x 7" x 42", and the top "clock" portion is 7" x 9" x 12".  When assembled it's as tall or taller than most people!  Clockworks do come with the piece.

Briar Rose is one of the fairy tales compiled by the brothers Grimm. The source of the story also had influences from Sleeping Beauty. Each of these two wonderful clocks tells the same story in a completely different style of painting. Easily adaptable to a large variety of surfaces but also spectacular pieces to adorn your home and celebrate the creativity of folk art.

Please note, this is a seven day class with six days of instruction, with a day off in the middle of 2 three day sessions. Provided surfaces include one clock. Each student will choose a style to paint on their clock, and they will paint the other style on wooden study panels, or if they wish, the other style can be painted on any other surface that is either brought or purchased here at the studio.
