Unique Sea Shell "Valentine" demonstration at the League of NH Craftsmen

MEREDITH — Come join the League of NH Craftsmen – Meredith Fine Craft Gallery on Saturday, June 7 anytime between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to see Denise Betourne create her signature Sailor's Valentine.

During this demonstrations Denise will be showing how she finely crafts one of her Valentine's out of shells. She will show how she makes individual flowers out of sea shells and how she decides to place them and organize them. This process is extremely delicate and planned out and Denise will have examples of the different steps, from drawing out her design, picking colors, cutting the mat board, creating flowers out of shells, and finally filling in the Valentine to finish it off.

Every Valentine is different and there are no two that are the same, so come see how Denise makes these beautiful and delicate one-of-a-kind works of art at the Meredith Fine Craft Gallery at 279 Daniel Webster Highway in Meredith.
