I have two workshops coming up this summer.
And already I am making plans for them,
getting bags full of treats
and supplies ready for my students
and becomming more and more excited.
This is my first workshop,
July 20 and July 21, 2012
I wanted to start with smaller,
more intimate workshops and
find some beautiful places
that I can return to year after year.
Maybe next summer
try for some larger venues as well...
And so I have picked two coastal towns
in the Pacific Northwest for my workshops.
The first is at Earthtone Studios,
in beautiful Camano Island in Washington State.
Sue Simpson is hosting The Thread That Weaves
at her beautiful studio that overlooks the Puget Sound.
This is the course description for both workshops...
The Thread That Weaves
Embark on a journey of creativity and exploration as you create a mixed media, one of a kind Artist Book with me and hosted by Sue Simpson.
With the Island and the Puget Sound as our muse, this journey will begin with the use of vintage papers, rice and textured papers, silk, old dictionary pages, gesso and matt medium to make beautiful surfaces for the pages of our books.
Then we will explore the art of design, composition and layering with Roxanne's cache of papers, metal bits and ephemera. We will connect, stitch, wire, collage, tie, wrap, hang, dangle, construct and weave all in your own Artist Book.
Please join me on this artistic journey of creativity while we immerse ourselves in the process of making a book that is filled with art that reflects each of you, your memory, your life and your dreams.
Students are encouraged to bring personal imagery or embellishments, found objects, pieces of nature, metal bits and inkjet color or black and white images for collages.
Other items to bring to the workshop are: white gesso, matte medium, scissors, glue sticks, paint brushes, favorite stamps or ink pads or mark makers.
A delicious lunch will be provided both days, and with the shoreline only a short walk away Earthtone Studio's is the perfect setting for this workshop.

My second workshop will be at Sage Place in beautiful
a small coastal town in Oregon.
