Jo Reimer — Collage Workshop – Playing with Stencils
1 day workshop
Date: June 17, 2019; Time: 9am – 1pm
Whether a collage novice or more experienced, you’ll find something useful as you play with collage and stencils. Add interest to your watercolor or acrylic paintings, or build a collage using stencils on paper to add layers of pattern and color to your work. This is more of a play day than a formal class. Several demos will be done to inspire your creativity. You might bring a “failed” painting to work on as a substrate, or small panel or mat board. For suggested supplies, paints, etc., see more details on our website.

Virginia Sumner — Bookbinding Workshop
Date: June 15; Time: 9am – 12pm
This is a hands-on class culminating in the creation of a sturdy yet delightful journal. We will explore the case binding method. Construction will consist of two parts, creating the signature block and case. Along the way we will create signatures, sew signatures into a block, discuss glue options, add header band and optionally a ribbon page marker, create the covers and spine and finish the book as we attach the case and page block. We will discuss many other binding options, and essential steps versus longevity. The kits are prepackaged and there will be a variety of styles to choose from. For tools, glue and kit, please see website.
