We're thinking BIG! Start by constructing a large journal from scratch using a recycled hardcover book. Then we'll spend the rest of the class creating our own unique, personal pages. Learn about color, composition, design and more while focusing on visual self-expression on the pages of your new journal.
Prepare to push and be pushed (abeit gently and in a good way!) out of your comfort zone. We will be using a variety of different size and shaped images in this class so you can collect some of your favorites in advance, but I'll also have a large plethora of collage items for you to choose from. You will walk out of class with your head full of new ideas, along with your new artist book!
My workshops are always process-based learning while creating a unique product. I'll bring a large variety of supplies for you to work with, including but not limited to:
tape and more!
Supply List for you to bring:
small selection of your favorite images/collage ephemera
bone folder (to crease pages)
cork back metal ruler
roll of waxed paper
roll of paper towels or an old rag
permanent black ink pad
container to hold water
1" brush to glue (I like chip or bristle brushes)
a few of your favorite glue sticks
old catalog or magazine as a gluing surface (you can just flip pages each time you glue instead of using all your waxed paper for this)
