Bundle options are available for printed packet, the beautiful alder heart handle tray, alder heart desk box, free shipping AND online class access.


There are two bundle options for the wood pieces shown.  Both of these pieces are made from alder.  The large alder heart handle tray is 18 ¼ x 12 x 1 ½” tall.  The floor of the tray is baltic birch.  The complementary alder desk box is 10" x 8" x 2 ¾" tall. 

A strikingly beautiful folk art style from the Tyrolean Alps.  It can feature stylized animals, birds, flowers and grapes but I've never seen an old piece with people.  Fascinating.  Color-wise the contrasting use of white and a more intense blue lends a richness to the toned reds, browns and black more commonly used.  Punctuated with dot edelweiss flowers this style resonates with techniques and color contrasts.
