Fragment Keepers, a very special workshop with Roxanne Evans Stout & Leighanna Light, March 26-30, 2018

from 200.00

Leighanna Light and Roxanne Evans Stout invite you to join them in magical Taos, New Mexico for a rich, immersive, creative, week long experience. We will explore bookmaking, surface design and various mark-making techniques on metal, paper, and fabric. Then, rearrange the materials to create our own “Fragment Keeper” book to preserve our special memories & experiences. Many of the pieces we will create can be enjoyed simply for their visual splendor, or if you choose, reconstruct them to become integral parts of your unique hand crafted journal.

From fabric prayer flags to distressed metal tiles, bold mark making to delicate leaf prints, our books will be inspired by the elements of the earth from this enchanted place where we are gathering.

In addition to creative learning, we offer an opening night celebration, a afternoon field trip to one of our favorite shops, as well as a free day to explore all of your favorite places.

New Mexico received its nickname, ‘The Land of Enchantment’, because of its natural beauty, rich history and vibrant culture. The people, their heritage and traditions, their skills and their arts, and the land, its awesome beauty, all make New Mexico the unique and colorful place that it is today.
We hope that you will join us for this creative learning experience, and  enjoy the beauty and splendor of this beautiful land that we call Taos!
