What Masterclasses are even going on tour?

I'm glad you asked! The short answer is basically WHATEVER YOU WANT!

Each Masterclass that I am teaching has been highly requested by followers, fans and former students. 

So fare here is the lineup:

What if you already struggle with sales or have no idea how to sell the work you will be creating? I have the answer...

1. Tanglewood Sue's Short Form Media Masterclass:

Once you have mastered your art form of choice how will you sell it, or your services?

Today there is only one way to get in front of your audience and that is video, specifically short-form video.

Love it or hate it, video is the quickest path to finding the people who love your work and want to patronize your business.

Even if you have a brick-and-mortar Video marketing is key to getting the word out about your business, what you offer, what you sell and even where you are.

In the past couple of years I have connected with over 300 thousand followers, had millions of views of my media, and yes this al resulted in significantly increased sales.

Google ranking is a long and somewhat tedious process of getting visitors to your website but video is a direct path from you to your people and your clients.

Unlike a standard website or ad, video is personal. It shows who you are and why you are passionate about what you do. It can also be daunting so here's what I will be teaching you in this masterclass.

  • Choosing your best platform
  • Basic equipment needs
  • Lighting & Sound 101
  • Tips to Go LIVE with confidence
  • Basic Editing Tips
  • How to get views on your videos
  • DO's and Don'ts of Short-Form Content

This Masterclass will get you started on your path towards video marketing success but it does not need to stop there.

Tanglewood Sue will be launching her own Video Content Creation online course and group. 

Just check out my stats!

Although they are have seen a huge increase since utilizing short form video, what is most important to me is engagement. I invite you to peruse all of my social media channels (except Instagram-IG has and will always hate me 😂

2. Tanglewood Sue's Schmoosh & Moosh

What is the hardest thing to do when painting furniture? By far the consensus is blending. Something that seems so simple is just so hard to get right.

Over the years I too have struggled with the most fun and effective way to blend any kind of chalk or clay based paints.

I showed this LIVE so many times my followers christened it the "Tanglewood Sue Schmoosh and Moosh"

I love teaching this class because EVERY SINGLE CLASS one of my participants squeals with delight that they can finally blend colors the way they have always wanted.

As long as you guys keep squealing I will keep teaching 😘 

3. Cara Lockwood's Flower Power

Cara, A self-taught artist, connoisseur of color and all-out creative freak, is coming to teach how to create floral art on furniture. Whether you like it sweet and simple, scraped and rustic, slap you silly bold...she's got you covered! Cara will be teaching several of her, "Just let it all go" techniques and she always guarantees artistic success!

4. Embossed Paint Techniques & Layering

this has to be one of my most favorite finishes Ive ever created! Not only that but infusing texture into your furniture makeovers can had a multitude sins. Chipped veneer does not stand a chance against well placed texture!

In this masterclass I am going to show you as many texture techniques that I can fit into one class! 

We are going to emboss, layer, stencil, roller spackle , trowel, and even use household items to. create one of a kind designs.

Not only will we create this texture we will use a variety of paints and waxes to bring it to life!
