Workshop Description...

In this very special three-day art-making adventure, we will be creating a one-of-a-kind embellished container to hold a handmade book and a dimensional assemblage. The class will cover a wide variety of techniques related to painting, mixed media, book binding, assemblage, collage, and fun-having. Using cradled panels, you will start by making a hinged container that will be layered in paint and covered with objects and materials. Inside, we will work on filling one niche with an assemblage of objects while at the same time learning approaches to dimensional collage, attachment techniques, and more. A hardbound book, made in the workshop and fully removable from the container, will fill the space in the other niche. Your "Library" can be themed or unthemed and will truly reflect your style, whether vintage, modern, bohemian, eclectic, or a style all your own.

"Flotsam & Jetsam – embellishing your container and book is where you can strecth your creative muscles and let your inner artist out. Anything goes. Bring in your choice of paper (ephemera, magazine and book pages, hand painted paper, scrapbook paper, etc), photographs, fabric scraps and/or trim, loose book covers, decorative and/or masking tape, your own small drawings, bling, die cut frames, alphabet and design stickers/rub ons, favorite pens and markers, lightweight metal pieces (hardware, watch parts, gears, pocket watch-cases, brass stencils, jewelry pieces, commercial embellishments, metal findings, brads, etc), found objects, etc. See images of workshop sample for examples.

What this means: If you buy a class spot and are unable to attend, and if there is a waiting list of students that has formed, we will put you in contact with the first person on the list to whom you can offer your class spot. If the person on the list accepts, then that person will need to pay you for your spot and once that transaction is complete and both parties are satisfied, we will transfer your spot to the other person. If you are unable to attend and there is no waiting list, we will unfortunately be unable to provide refunds.
