Workshops

Painted Paper with Painted Fusible Web   
This is a fun project with multiple layers of paint.  We will be experimenting with fusible web, Inktense pencils and acrylic paints. This project can just as easily be done on fabric so if that is your preferred substrate let me know and I will have fabric available for you to use.  There are some really interesting collage possibilities with this workshop.

Mixed Media Printmaking   
We will be creating two printing plates.  We will also explore some unexpected materials for print.  A variety of substrates will be printed onto.  You will go home with plenty of fodder for your collage, journals, cards and stitching possibilities.

Embedded Fibres  
I am sure that I am not the only one who collects interesting yarns and fibres.  This workshop is a great way to use up some of that beautiful stash.  No, you don’t need to bring any of your collection to class.  I have more than enough to share!  A lovely project will be created.  This is a project that you can take home and add stitch to it or frame as is.  There is no sewing involved in creating this project.


Altered Book as Art-Turn old books into personalized works of art.  Explore a variety of mixed media and art techniques including collage, stitch, and printmaking.   The creative possibilities are endless - go where your imagination takes you!  There will be step-by-step demonstrations and helpful tips as you're guided through the process of altering pages.  Along with that, there will be captivating ideas and inspiration for creating multi-dimensional art.


Altered Book as Journal- A book will be altered to construct a very unique journal with pages full of layers of color for deep musings. Luscious layers will help you explore mixed media art journaling.  Learn new art techniques using watercolor pencils, transfer foils, acrylic paint and more.  Combine your precious bits of ephemera into a truly one -of -a -kind artist's journal. Create a playground of self-expression and discovery where the idea of making mistakes doesn’t exist. 

Fibre Fusion 
In this workshop, we will create two pieces of fibre fusion.  We will be working with silk and wool roving.  As well we will be incorporating a variety of interesting materials that will add visual interest.  

Sumptuous Surfaces
Whether you are a paper or textile artist this workshop is for you.  We will explore numerous ways to decorate your preferred substrate.  We will spend a delightful week printmaking, sun painting, spraying and generally moving color around the surface.  We will also be adding shimmer and shine to our surfaces with transfer foil, Shiva paint sticks, and interference paints.  This workshop is the place to let your inner child come out to play and create with watercolor crayons, ink, dye sticks and so much more.

Bead Embroidery
Add dimension, detail, and texture to your jewelry, quilts, home décor, artwork, and other creative projects with bead embroidery.  This workshop guides you through basic embroidery stitches and more advanced variations and combinations of stitches while teaching you how to incorporate seed beads, e-beads, bugle beads, and sequins.  Leave with your own sampler of stitches that can be used as a reference when you continue embroidering at home.  No experience necessary; all materials included.
