A Library of Memories

Join me for a mixed media adventure that will focus on a wide variety of techniques related to painting, mixed media layering, bookbinding, assemblage, and collage. Over the course of the retreat, we will be creating a one-of-a-kind embellished container that holds a handmade book and a dimensional assemblage. 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 hand-bound 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 un-themed and will truly reflect your style, whether vintage, modern, bohemian, eclectic, or one all your own.

Suitable for all levels and beginners are welcome.
