art for your ear

It's been forever since I wrote here, again. I have been busy, VERY busy. I'm on a plane right now returning from eight AMAZING days at an artist residency in New Hampshire, where I had an entire GIANT, beautiful barn all to myself. It was incredible. I go so much done. I documented it all on my Instagram account (@tiffanieturner) if you'd like to see. It was truly a highlight of my life.

While I was there I recorded a podcast with my friend Danielle, aka The Jealous Curator, for her Art for your Ear series. We talked about what I'm up to (A LOT), how I got started and what's coming next. I loved doing it, and I've been getting some nice feedback on it. If you like to take a listen, you can find it HERE. And for all of the rest of this series, go HERE. There are so many fantastic and inspiring conversations.

More soon! xoxo


free time!

I have about a million things going on right now, including but not limited to: contracts, proposals, grant writing and more. I have big and small news. I have a lot to share! But, a miracle has happened. I also have planned ahead and will be taking most of July off from working. The kids need me, and I need them, and I managed to leave a giant hole in my schedule before things go bonkers over the next year. So, four weeks of summer, then I'm off to the races again.

I have written about a few extremely exciting goings-on over on the main page of my website. You can head over there if you're so inclined by clicking here, and you can always find me on Instagram as @tiffanieturner.

I do have several great workshops coming up later in the summer here in the Bay Area and in Salt Lake City, then in New Hampshire in September and Los Angeles in November. SO excited about all of that. I will be working on listing those workshops on my website over the next week, and will post links here as well when everything has been settled.

Have a wonderful Monday and a wonderful week. I'll be back soon!



upcoming workshops!

Paper Bougainvillea Workshop

I hope you all enjoyed your Mother's Day in one way or another. Today is my wedding anniversary and we are returning from an overnight trip to a treehouse. Everyone here (besides me) wants to live in a treehouse when they grow up, so I though I'd give them a taste of it. I'll let you know how it goes!

I wanted to let you know about three great workshops I have coming up in May and June. The first is "Paper Bougainvillea", at Handcraft Studio School in Emeryville, CA. I will teach how to make paper bougainvillea in two different styles and in a giant array of colors. The bougainvillea petals and blossoms can be used in wall hangings, wreaths, in your hair or wherever you'd like.

1920s-Inspired Mock-Vintage Metallic Floral Headpieces

I love this workshop, and hope to hold on to the piece I make in class this time. I end up giving them to girlfriends and don't have one for myself anymore. Have you seen the headpiece Kate Hudson wore to the Met Gala this year? I am thinking about how to create that more draped look for this class as well. Either way, they are gorgeous and great for summer weddings!

Paper Rose de Granville

Finally, my rose de Granville workshop. This was great fun when I ran it earlier this year. The students all went away with beautiful specimens they had made in the class. Fun fact: I taught myself to make these as samples for Dior Paris. I have an agency there who gave me the opportunity to make these as "free gift with purchase" for Dior cosmetic counters in France. I don't know if it was my price point or something else, but after lots of rushing around I never got a definitive answer and have no idea where my samples are now. Learning lots of lessons along the way these days. But come make some with me, you won't regret it!

I have some really exciting news to share, but I am waiting to get a few more of the details before I post about it here. Will do so very soon. Have a great week!
