STITCHING PATTERN & TEXTURE

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR THIS WORKSHOP

This workshop begins with constructing a concertina of sturdy St. Armand’s rag paper. Collaged images will be added to the structure using a variety of Japanese and vintage papers. Finally, discrete areas of hand-stitched texture and pattern will be added to punctuate space, embellish forms, and create movement across the 6-paneled structure. The completed concertina will be cased in boards, include an inset cover plate, and be covered in book cloth to create the finished book.

THE FINE ART OF COLLAGE

REGISTRATION IS CLOSED FOR THIS WORKSHOP

Learn how to create unique and expressive abstract works using collage. Handmade painted collage papers, repurposed scraps and various ephemera are layered and combined with acrylic paint and mark-making to produce textured and intuitive art pieces. On the first day, create painted papers using a variety of fun and simple techniques, including monoprinting with a Gelli Arts plate. On the second day, your papers become the foundation of your collages as you add other paper elements and use acrylic paint to fill spaces and create backgrounds. You assemble several collage pieces concurrently. Greeting cards with small collages are made as time allows.
