Wire Fandango 2013
June 12-15, 2013 In New Orleans


Wire Fandango is a four day retreat in which we will make beautiful art jewelry in the morning then go out on the town to visit art galleries, cultural venues, historic sites and awesome shops and boutiques in the afternoon and evening.  This is my fifth Wire Fandango and promises to the best and most fun of all.  As a huge bonus to you, I have arranged for us to stay at the beautiful Hotel St. Marie in the French Quarter.  Tell them you're with Wire Fandango and you'll get a special price of $96.05 per night--and that's tax included!

Established in 1718, New Orleans is the Queen city of the Gulf Coast. She’s full of history, intrigue, mystery and romance.  The home ofpirates and scoundrels, the site of heroism and magic, New Orleans has drawn adventurers, seekers, saints and sinners from all parts of the world.  Her streets are teeming with the ghosts of the people who made her and each generation adds to the mix.  Come to New Orleans with me, Annette Kinslow, and my Wire Fandango gang.  I promise you an experience like no other.  I've designed the jewelry projects especially for this event and there's no other like it.

Wire Fandango is limited to 14 people-so sign up today!

 

A few things you can choose to do or see:

  • The French Market (flea market, cooking demos, vegetable/spice market)
  • The New Orleans Collection (art and artifacts of New Orleans)
  • Famous women of New Orleans Tour
  • Tour of the Garden District
  • Cemetery tours
  • Haunted History Tour
  • Various Home Tours
  • Dixieland Dinner Cruise on the Steamboat “Natchez”
  • Have a cocktail at the piano bar known as “Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop”
  • Toast Napoleon in the Napoleon House
  • Tour St. Louis Cathedral—lots of art and old architecture
  • Walk around Jackson Square—meet the artists, have your fortune told (I see a tall dark stranger in your future!)
  • Eating out?  Yes, indeed.  Where do you want to go?  Acme Oyster House? Galatorie’s?  Antoine’s?  Arnaud’s?  We’ll decide when we’re there.

 

Cost of the event:  $800

What you get for that fee:

  • Workshops and materials (copper with dichroic glass) for 3
  • Projects--Necklace, earrings and a bracelet
  • Breakfast and lunch Wednesday through Saturday and breakfast on Sunday
  • Written instructions for each project
  • Door prizes
  • Wine and cheese social the first evening
  • Tour & talk at Bourbon Parfum (a parfume boutique)
  • Famous Ladies of New  Orleans Tour

 

As I mentioned above, we have arranged a discount rate at The Hotel St. Marie if you tell them you’re part of Wire Fandango.  The cost is $96.05 per night—and that includes the hotel tax and two beds in your room.  So bring a friend to the event and save a little more money.

Also, if you have friends or relatives who just want to come to New Orleans during this time, they can get the same deal on the hotel.  The cost for a spouse or friend to come with you but is $290. and that includes breakfast, lunch and wine & cheese social.


The number for reservations is 1-800-366-2743, or go online at www.hotelstmarie.com.  The discount code is WIRED. The deadline to get your deal is May 1, 2012.

Organizer

Annette Kinslow with Kinslow Art

  Annette Kinslow

is a lifelong artist and has worked in a number of  media including quilting, spinning, weaving, and designing art clothing before developing her skills as a wire artist.  Her students walk out of class with finished pieces of beautiful jewelry, a lot of knowledge, and a great attitude and felling of accomplishment.  Kinslow has been teaching beading and wire wrapping for over 12 years and has been teaching dichroic glass fusing techniques for five years.  Wire Fandango, New Orleans will be Kinslow's fifth such event after producing two in San Antonio, Texas, and one each in Savannah, Georgia and Fredericksburg, Texas.  Annette's message in class is "There's no such thing as 'can't'" and she lives that motto every day.  She calls it developing your personal power by finding the artist within yourself.
