Creating Small Journals

If you love small books, and have wanted to create your own special journals, then this is the workshop for you! You will create up to 3 small journals using file folders and wonderful collage papers and washi tape. The journals can have a theme of your choice, and can be created as a gift for someone, or to use to record your next vacation or special event. All materials and supplies are provided. Bring a sack lunch or plan to go out during our lunch break.

The workshop is $65, plus a materials fee of $10 payable to Kat at the session.

 

Painted Mandala Rocks
February 17, 2018 10am – 4pm

Meditative and relaxing, mandalas (or circle) represent the universe in a repetitive pattern. You will paint your personal mandala designs onto smooth flat rocks from the Salt River. Starting with a guided visualization, you will then begin designing your mandala. Transferring your design onto the rock, you will then use acrylic paints and paint pens to give it color and life! Have fun with this project, which can then be used as a paperweight or doorstop at home. All materials and supplies are provided. Bring a sack lunch or plan to go out during our lunch break.

The workshop is $65, plus a materials fee of $10 payable to Kat at the session.

The Labyrinth as Creative Muse
Nov 10, 2018 10:00 AM – Nov 11, 2018 4:00 PM

The labyrinth can be a place to open up to the creative muse. Walking the labyrinth enables our right brain which is the creative, intuitive side of our brain, to open, explore and connect to the imagination, as the left part of the brain focuses on following the labyrinth path.

In this two-day workshop, we will explore walking the labyrinth to deepen our creativity, and integrate and deepen our experience of the spiral path through a number of creative practices which will include making labyrinth intention boxes, a set of spirit stones, and making SoulCollage® cards which incorporate labyrinthine energy.

The workshop is $225, plus a materials fee of $25 payable at the workshop.

Assemblage
Date: TBD

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!

The workshop is $65 plus $15 materials fee.

 

Altered Books
Date: TBD

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!

The workshop is $65 plus $10 materials fee.

 

Stamp Carving
Date: TBD

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!

The workshop is $39 and includes materials.
