classes

Thanks for checking in on our class offerings! You can find upcoming classes below.

You can check out any paid courses at mkt.com/shopjunket.  These classes require advance registration; ticket sales will close 24 hours before the start of each class.

We also offer free drop-in sessions with our Artist-In-Residence, Meg Erke, a couple of times each month.  We typically post the details of these classes here, a few weeks in advance. If you’re curious about what’s going on this week or next week or next month (you get the picture), a high level overview of all Junket goings-on can be found on our Events Calendar.

We have a slightly more stringent refund policy for paid class registrations than we do for the stuff we sell at the shop due to the time-constrained impossibility of reselling your unwanted ticket after a class has happened. So- here’s the skinny:

  • Ticket sales will be refunded until two weeks prior to class start.
  • Equivalent credit toward a future class will be issued for cancellations 1-13 days prior to class.
  • No day-of or after-the-fact refunds or credits will be issued for missed classes.
  • You are welcome to sell or share your unneeded ticket at any time.

Thanks for helping us make sure these classes are time well spent for all involved!

Earring Conversion Class w/ Junket’s Julie (Tickets: $24)
When we cleaned out Muriel’s house, one of the biggest surprises we found was a collection of several hundred pairs of clip-on earrings. While many of them are fabulous, we don’t know many people who wear clip-ons these days. It got us thinking, how can we convert these to something usable so they don’t go to waste? It struck us that others probably have unworn treasures tucked in a jewelry box too, so we wanted to create an opportunity for you to rediscover and appreciate those pieces.

Join us for an evening of repurposing and sharing stories as we learn to convert clip-on earrings to posts (or vice-versa). Bring your own earrings from home or purchase a pair of Muriel’s before class begins. All other materials and instruction will be provided.

What: Earring conversion class
Where: Junket: Tossed & Found
When: Monday, February 26, 2018, 5:00-6:30pm
Cost $24

Creative Makers’ Open Studio (Tickets: $10)
Join Junket’s Molly Anthony on Friday, March 2, 5:30-7PM, for meaningful, focused time to create, reuse, make and connect with others! We’re inviting returning participants to keep working on their journals as well as helping newbies get started.

New participants will each start with a book (something with some history and character to it – we’ll have an assortment on hand), and then focus on the creative process of layering materials onto existing pages, deciding what to keep and what becomes background, experimenting with different techniques and ways of playing with the things we have at our disposal. Molly will offer newcomers guidance on staying organized (functionally and thematically) so you can literally get creative on the bus or between coffee shop appointments, and then share an experimental technique or two as all of us begin (or continue) working on our own journals.

For those who are continuing their work, you’ll have access to all materials and space to continue creating at your own pace.

What: Creative journaling class for up to 6 people
When: Friday, March 2, 5:30-7PM
Where: Junket: Tossed & Found
Cost: $10

Collage on Book Board w/ Molly Anthony (Tickets: $28)
Collage is a way to tell a story through an arrangement of paper pieces. Individually, the pieces may appear random, but together, they create meaning, evoke feeling and tell a tale.

Join Molly Anthony on Friday, March 9, 6-8PM for collaging on book board! In this class, we’ll be re-purposing old books and giving them a new life and a chance to tell new stories. Using book board as our starting point, we’ll gather pieces of vintage paper, ephemera and photographs to fill in the rest of our stories. All materials will be provided and each person will leave with a completed piece of artwork.

What: Book board collaging class
When: Friday, March 9, 6:00-8:00 pm
Where: Junket: Tossed & Found
Cost $28
