In this class with Lynn’s guidance, you will turn an ordinary Halloween trick or treat paper bag into: a lovely art journal, a Halloween Bag of Tricks, a place to put past Halloween memories, and/or to use as a Halloween gift. Your choice!

Using found Halloween items, vintage items, recycled items, fabric, lace and various papers and other ephemera, we will use a three-hole pamphlet stitch to create a lovely, unique Halloween journal, or as the title suggests, a functional and fun “Halloween Bag of Tricks”!

You will leave this class with a completed gift/journal and the knowledge to make more, should you choose to do so.

Note: After you attend this course, this process would be a fun craft project to do with your children, school children,  grandchildren for Halloween, or to make at a children’s birthday party as a group, with any birthday close to Halloween.

Lynn Blair
Lynn Blair & Associates, LLC/Art as Therapy
Professionally Lynn practiced as a registered nurse with a Doctorate Degree in the healthcare field. During her 35+ years in healthcare, she noticed how art helped patients and residents heal. And, how art helped patients and residents positively refocus their energy during difficult times. Therefore, she knew when she retired from the corporate world, she would be focusing on Art as Therapy. Lynn has been working with beads, yarn, fabric, paper and a variety of mediums for years, starting with stringing beads and buttons as a very young girl with her grandmother. During middle school and high school she sewed her own clothing. When living in California, for several years Lynn taught beading and jewelry-making classes at a local bead store. At one time, Lynn had a 60″ weaving loom and weaved her own curtains and material.
Lynn enjoys creating items which have a variety of textures, art that includes recycled items and found objects, and repurposing all possible elements in art.
She creates many different types of beautiful ephemera to utilize in her one-of-a-kind art junk journals which she sells in her ETSY Storefront: lynnmariblair
Her commercial studio, Art as Therapy opens in Scottsdale the summer of 2024 where her work can be viewed and purchased.
Lynn is a member of the Sonoran Arts League and Paperworks. Several pieces of commissioned work were generated by Lynn to include a memory bridal journal, a tiny art journal, and a personal grief journal after the passing of a loved one.
Lynn lives in North Scottsdale where she is inspired by the beautiful boulders, native foliage, sunsets, and the gifts of nature within her art.
