Folk Art Ornament (or Piñata? Or Globe?) NEW! In-Store Class Sept 15
Folk Art Ornament (or Piñata? Or Globe?) NEW! In-Store Class
Thursday, September 15, 6-8pm MT
Instructor: Jone Hallmark
Limit: 10 students
We’re not quite sure what to call this newest creation from Santa Fe artist Jone Hallmark – an ornament, a tiny piñata, or a little gift box? At any rate, it’s charming, quite versatile, and couldn’t be simpler to make. It’s a rounded globe composed of circles that are folded and glued together. Often made of decorated paper, Jone’s version features her original, hand-colored images. She also includes some blank circles so that you can add a message or photo to personalize the ornament. It’s a lovely way to celebrate a special occasion or a holiday, and an unusual way to present a small gift. Besides, they’re just plain fun to make!
Come work with Jone – enjoy an evening of laughter and the pleasure of making something with your own two hands!

Class Refund/Cancellation Policy
Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class.

If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.
Instructor BioSanta Fe artist Jone Hallmark, who says of herself, “I tend to work in a two-inch square!”, has created her own little world of magical delights. Each tiny wonder – from the cleverest fox or hedgehog to a charming parade of flower-bearing young girls – is handcrafted from paper clay, wire, wood, and other tiny bits and pieces. Her sophisticated yet simple designs show the influence of both her father’s Scandinavian heritage and the intricate painted miniatures she collected when living in Switzerland. Her affinity for using small, ordinary objects comes from her mom, also a graphic designer and artist. She taught Jone that you can make just about anything you want instead of going to a store to buy it. Jone’s creative life started on the floor of her father’s studio, where she sat as a child surrounded by brushes, paints, and a treasure of paper.
Her passion for design eventually led to work developing store displays, award-winning lines of decorated papers, and the beloved Bryce and Madeline stickers. One day, after twenty years of licensing her artwork for other people’s products, Jone realized that she needed to get back to basics and simplify. In that moment, her tiny little world was born. Now she spends her time teaching, drawing, painting, and making huge messes on every available flat surface. See her work on Instagram at @jonehallmark.
