Instructors: Lorraine Bell and Rae Missigman

Friday (1/2 day class)

Quilted Art Journal

Learn to create a lovely art journal using old quilts as a cover and an incredible unique method for binding your ephemera pages together! You will also be adorning your cover with handmade flowers and leaves, lovingly dyed and stitched in place. Finish your journal with a vintage button closure…a treasure for yourself or a one-of-a-kind gift for someone special!

Supplies needed: Sharp scissors, any paper ephemera you choose (plus we will supply some in your kit)

Saturday (full day class)

Collage Canvas Art

In this all day class, we will take collage to an entirely new level using a multitude of techniques like painting, ink, fabric and paper! You will create a 11x14 canvas that is big enough to hang, yet small enough to carry home in your suitcase. We will step out of the box to make a unique ‘painting’ using non-traditional items, including stitching directly onto your stretched masterpiece. We are certain you will adore your canvas and want to go home and make more!

Supplies needed: Sharp scissors, a stash of patterned scrapbook paper, small bits of fabric and an assortment of embroidery floss. Also, feel free to bring anything special you think you might like to incorporate into your “painting” like a love letter or photograph (preferably copies!) We will be providing a kit of the basic supplies, but you may want to bring papers and fabrics that speak to your color palette. You may also bring an assortment of acrylic paints in colors that you love and we will have some to share as well.
