You read that right. Miss Mustard Seed, Marian Parsons, the famous blogger, home decorator, author, furniture refinisher, and namesake of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint is partnering with Carver Junk Company to bring you a hands-on workshop in October!
Chad has been working with Marian for a few months to set up this workshop. We'd originally been discussing having her fly in for a weekend a teach a full-day session combined with one of our other events. After their initial conversation, Marian asked Chad to sit tight on planning, because her family was in the process of moving for her husband's job. Turns out, they were working on their move...to MINNESOTA! We couldn't be more thrilled to have Marian right in our own backyard. For 4 years, we've been carrying her paint line in our stores, and communicating with her virtually, but never in person.
Needless to say, we're thrilled to meet her, and we know you will be, too. The workshops are scheduled for October 21st: 8 am - Noon and 1 pm - 5 pm. Each one is limited to 48 people, which means plenty of quality time with Marian and the CJC team, talking all things Milk Paint. Marian will speak, instruct, and do a Q&A throughout the day, and we'll provide snacks, drinks, additional instructors, and a beautiful project. Due to the size, they'll be held off-site but just down the street from our Chaska location, in the historic Chaska Mill building.
Our team has created a project that will allow you to learn a variety of techniques using a variety of Miss Mustard Seed's Milk Paint products, and at the end we'll assemble it into a gorgeous finished piece of art for your home! Choose between welcome, home or family as the word art on your piece. The finished projects are approximately 18" x 24," and are perfect for placement in a gallery wall (imagine "family" surrounded by family photos) or entryway as a "welcome."
