EXPLORING TEXTURE March 8-9, 9:30-4:30

I just love to create beautiful texture, and this one is all about texture, contrast and color! In this workshop we will create 2 gorgeous, one of a kind shrines using fabric scraps, clay, paint, ink and scrap wood. You will learn all about composition, object placement, mold making, fabric sculpting, and a variety of techniques to create rich and interesting textures. My shrines are all approximately 8” x 6”.  Please join us for a messy, fun day of art making!

THE ARCHIVIST’S RELIC March 29-30, 9:30-4:30

In this 2 day workshop you will learn how to make this simple, sweet little chunky book using only watercolor paper, found metal and embellishments. The book is approximately 4 x 3 inches.
You will learn how to work with found metal, how to create beautiful textures and surfaces using gesso and ink, as well as distressing, punching, altering, and cold connecting. Join us for a fun day of art making and use this book to record your special dreams, goals and thoughts that are close to your heart.

FUNKY DWELLINGS September 13, 9:30-4:30
In this workshop we will create our very own imaginary village using a variety of techniques to build thick deep layers on canvas. We will use paint, paper, fabric, fibers, found objects and gel to create amazing depth and dimension. Learn many new tips and tricks including how to obtain a beautiful encaustic look without using messy hot wax and crock pots. Please join us for a fun, relaxing day of inspiration and art making! This is a project oriented workshop. You should be able to leave with at least one finished canvas, 3 if you work fast!
