You might know me as Finnabair, but my real name is Anna Dabrowska-Pekocka, and I’m a mixed media artist, teacher, and product designer. Transforming and upcycling everyday objects is the cornerstone of my craft. Between textures and paint, my love for dimensional artwork has shaped my distinctive style. In 2011 my hobby transformed into teaching mixed media classes all over the world. Since 2013 I'm one of the most active product designers in the mixed-media world. The products I design with Prima blur the line between craft supplies, home décor, and fine art. The Finnabair brand is visible and dynamic, full of creative energy, with just the right pinch of quirk; our focus lies in workshops, new techniques and product development. My mission is to continue this magical, artistic journey and teach and encourage as many creative souls as I can on their path of self-discovery. Art is always the answer.

‘She made broken look beautiful and strong look invincible .
She walked with the universe on her shoulders and made it look like a pair of wings.’

These words were my inspiration when I started off with my ‘Broken Angel’ mixed media canvas.. I knew what I wanted to express .. the girl that looks so strong but feels so weak, the girl that picks herself up every time she falls. 

In this class I will show you how to get inspiration from around you. How to break a blank canvas and how to stretch your supplies to the maximum. We will learn all about creating amazing textures using basic and humble products. Nothing fancy! You will not only learn about color palettes and combinations but also the ‘why’ behind them. You learn about using basic mixed media tools to make amazing art. After learning the techniques I teach you in this class you will be confident enough to try them out yourself to create beautiful projects.

Mechanicals –FUNky Junque necklaces With Jen Cushman

Class Schedule: April 18, 2021 @ 9:00 A.M. – 12:30 P.M.

Look like you’re leisurely strolling about Paris flea markets in search of cool found objects for your mixed-media jewelry projects BUT, in reality, you know you’re staying home during the pandemic and making some really FUN wearable art that looks like it could have come from the trendiest of Les Puces Marche! In this workshop we will turn Finnabair’s Mechanicals into cool metal charms to create lovely layered necklaces. The generous kit will allow you to create not one, but two necklaces in junque drawer style.

We’ll also be using the Frank Garcia’s Luxembourg hardware along with Prima Modeling Material to make beautiful vintage hardware castings from lightweight air dry clay. These statement necklaces look like they weigh a ton, but they’re really light and easy to wear thanks to the art material. Instruction includes how to paint and faux finish the castings to mimic real metal hardware. We will talk about how to properly design statement jewelry and how to do the jump ring attachments properly so the necklaces lay well and fit comfortably.  Basic wireworking will be taught as well.

 Note: Some prep work to the charms is necessary before class day in order to show up prepared and ready to create. This mostly includes punching holes into the metal charms beforehand, but more easy and detailed instructions on how to do this will be emailed to students before class.
