Table of Contents

A table of contents typically is an abbreviated listing of chapters in a book and provides an overview of what can be found on the pages within. In our workshop, we will be visually documenting our own personal stories and creating a one-of-a-kind Table of Contents that reflects the chapters of our lives. You will create a series of mixed media booklets made from paper and/or fabric that, when stacked together, express your story. The booklets can reflect different ages or stages in your life, people in your world, aspects of your-self, experiences you have had, etc. Or you can simply make an un-themed, kick-ass artist book! Techniques we will explore together include painting in layers, surface design, book binding, creating patina on paper, free stitching, mark making, and more.
