I would love for you to join me for a three day mini retreat in beautiful Taos, New Mexico where we will explore surface design & bookmaking!

In this informative, messy workshop you will learn how to alter paper, fabric and metal as well as how to make an exquisite book using watercolor paper, fabric, canvas, metal & embellishments.

I will teach you my absolute favorite techniques for creating interesting surfaces on metal, including metal transfers & leaf printing, which will later be used as the covers for your book. You will learn how to create gorgeous surfaces on metal, paper & fabric!

We will create beautiful rust prints on fabric and on paper we will experiment with stencils, stamps & inexpensive household found objects to create yummy textures on paper. I will introduce you to resists, glazes, gesso & ink to create depth, contrast & stunning color combinations.

These are all tried & true techniques that I use on most of my art work, whether it be assemblage, book design or figurative sculpture.

You will learn how to make magic out of imperfections, and how to make room for more happy accidents.

We will tie it all together to create a beautiful 5x7 inch book. I will teach you how to bind this book as well as how to attach and work with metal by distressing, punching, altering, and cold connecting.

You will leave with one beautiful book to fill with your cherished memories, photographs & writings, along with all information that you need to create more. You will also have enough pages and metal to complete two other books at a later time.

There is an additional kit fee of $30 which includes canvas book shell, sandpaper, fibers, fabric, waxed linen thread, needle, metal tools, finishing coat, glazes & several mark-making tools, as well as use of instructors hand carved stamps, stencils & consumables.
