D.I.Y. delight

Discover the transformative power of paint at a workshop led by Jody Hammett, artist and owner of Aprčs. As the exclusive Baton Rouge stockist of Amy Howard Home paints, lacquers and finishes, Hammett is an expert in furniture makeovers. On Sunday from 2 until 5 p.m. at The Foyer, Hammett will teach a Lacquer class. Participants (like the duo at left) will learn how to create an antique mirror motif, then use their new skills on their own project: a painted tray with a mirrored bottom. And on Nov. 19 from 5 until 8 p.m., a One-Step class is being held at the Foyer. This technique yields a more traditional look, embellished, if desired, with gold leaf and various waxes. Call The Foyer at 343-3655 to reserve your spot in either class.
