From the first moment we arrived there was magic. We all noticed it, Seth and I, our students, and even the staff. They said that we brought an alchemy to the house. We were enchanted.
I loved teaching with Seth. We broke up our teaching days by one of us teaching in the morning, and one in the afternoon. This worked beautifully. We had both created brand new projects just for this workshop, and all of them would fit into our "cases of curiosities."
My heart is full of images of the beautiful creations our students made with us. Each unique, each magical just like they were.
Three days of ecodyeing, stitching, collaging and being pampered with Roxanne Evans Stout and Leslie Marshat the beautiful Redstone, Colorado, home of Laura Roberts, (also known as Hasty Pearl)!
With Leslie, students will learn to ecodye - coaxing beautiful prints onto paper and fabric for their books using leaves, heat and water. They will bind the fruit of their efforts into a wrapped felt book using gathered sticks and a very simple binding.
Roxanne will share her many collaging and stitching secrets with participants, filling the pages of their books with stunning nature-inspired pieces of art.
While we're busy creating, Laura will spoil our socks off in the all-out way she's becoming known for. An excellent cook and hostess extraordinaire, she will leave us all smiling and full of her yummy treats.
The workshop fee includes everything necessary to complete the 6.5" by 5" book similar as shown.
It also includes lunch and more delicious snacks than we could possibly eat.
