I first thought of this title when I did a project for Tracy Verdugo's beautiful book, Paint Mojo. In her book I wrote about seeing a rug in a store that I loved in New York City a few years ago. This rug was stitched together with seemingly unrelated pattterns and colors, yet together it was a rich tapestry and the memory of it inspired the piece I did for Tracy's book and still inspires me today.
I begun thinking of tapestries as I created all my collages, book pages and paintings.
That is just what this workshop is about. Tapestry Collaging the Seasons...
In 2015, I have this workshop planned for two different venues, at A Work of Heart in San Jose, California -- such an inspiring shop and studio for a workshop, at in Salem, Oregon at The Art Department.
You can register for either workshop at the bottom of their pages.
Both these workshops are listed on my 2015 Workshop Schedule here.
You can also see photos
of my first workshop at a Work of Heart
last year here.
In Tapestry Collaging the Seasons, we will connect four squares of beautiful Khadi Paper with our own bent, rusty wire rings and eyelits.
Each square will represent a different season or feeling... all unique to you, each connected to the other but each different.
We will create beautiful backgrounds, paint small landscapes, cut out images, make little books, pockets and stich together small found objects.
Join me and you will re-discover the magic of creating art from your heart with like minded souls, all the while using my wonderful stash of art supplies and found objects.
You will go home with a beautiful book or wall hanging and be even more inspired in your own art projects.
And you will wish the workshop would last forever!
