Custom Demonstrations at F.L.A.V.O.R. Studio

Custom Demonstrations at F.L.A.V.O.R. Studio

As many of you know, all are welcome to visit our studio in the barn behind the Inn to see what we are working on at any given time. It has occurred to us, however, that in some cases we don’t have any unfinished projects in the works, and as a result, you don’t get to see how we create our pieces. Since F.L.A.V.O.R. Studio’s inception, we have always offered “Hands-on” classes in all of the mediums we utilize, we are now offering a special studio experience to assure that you can observe what our creative process is and how things are constructed.
We are excited to introduce “Custom Demonstrations at F.L.A.V.O.R. Studio”!
When you reserve a Custom Demonstration we will dedicate a 60-90 minute block of studio time during which you, (and up to 3 friends), will observe the entire process of how we create a piece from start to finish.  During the demonstration, you will get to select some of the “ingredients” we will use to create the piece and we’ll talk you through the process as we go, describing the methods and materials we use and why we use them.  You, of course, can ask questions along the way or just sit back, relax, and watch the show.  The most important part that we haven’t mentioned yet is the fact that when the demonstration is over, you get to take home the piece we just created!
Our Custom Demonstrations are a little different from our “Hands-on” classes because during the demonstrations we do all the work.  In the “Hands-on” classes you do most of the work with our guidance and instruction.  As a result, the demonstrations take less time than the classes, and leave more time for drinking wine.  You may be asking, “What exactly will you be demonstrating?” We have decided to offer a Stained Glass option and a Jewelry-making option that has three variations, Necklace, Bracelet, or Earrings.
Specifically, in the Stained Glass category, you will have the opportunity to select the glass colors and textures to be used in the piece you will take home.  Regarding the jewelry making, you will select most of the components, whether beads, recycled items or repurposed items that will be used in your demonstration.  Keep in mind, we will be right there with you to help you with advice on what colors or elements will work for your given piece.
With so much to see and do here in the Finger Lakes, we generally like to schedule our demonstrations in the late afternoon or early evening, before or after you have dinner, so you don’t miss out on all of the fun during the day when everything else is open.  F.L.A.V.O.R. Studio is open regularly until 8 PM, and even later if we are still working on a project or have someone in the studio.  Just like the studio, our Custom Demonstrations are available to anyone, even if you don’t happen to be a guest of the Inn.
We know from our own experience that it’s fun to take home a memento of your trip, and it is even more meaningful when you are able to watch it being made.  This is our amped up version of shopping local.
See you soon in the studio,
Marc and Deb
