Assemblage
Date: TBD
$65.00 plus $15.00 materials fee
Come play in the studio with me as we choose, arrange and attach pieces of treasures to a substrate of your choosing. (Trays, boxes, plaques, musical instruments – bring whatever you’d like to enhance!) We will discuss laying out our designs, which adhesive to use, and how to prepare and finish the surface. Dress for a mess!

 

Altered Books
Date: TBD
$65.00 plus $10.00 materials fee
An Altered Book is a piece of mixed media artwork featuring an old book that has had new life breathed into it. Participants in this workshop will cut, tear, glue, paint, collage, stamp, fold and adorn the pages in whatever direction your imagination takes you. Choose from a variety of old books and begin to create something unique. You might use some of the text already there, or cover it up with gesso and start over. You might follow a theme or topic or work randomly and without a plan. Altered books are a great way to begin a new creative journal, as that “staring at a blank page” is not an issue! Enjoy the process!

 

Stamp Carving
Date: TBD
$39.00 includes materials
Create a one-of-a-kind original stamp and have fun! Using special carving material and tools, we will talk about design ideas, and the concept of negative and positive spaces. Carving your own personal stamp is an enjoyable, meditative process and you’ll be amazed at how great even the most simple design turns out!

SoulCollage® Workshops

Immerse yourself for a few hours in the soul-satisfying process of SoulCollage® where you will create a personal deck of collaged cards.

Using your intuition, choose from a unique collection of images, then using scissors and glue, create collage cards that reflect your influences, your personality, your guides.

You will also get a taste of how you can consult your cards for self-exploration and understanding by doing readings alone or in small groups.

Introduction to SoulCollage ®

This workshop is perfect for beginners and for those who have started their own SoulCollage journey. The group atmosphere is supportive and encouraging. No artistic skill or experience is necessary. Come join me in my beautiful new studio!

When: Saturday, February 11, 2017 10am – 4pm
Where: 2KatStudios
