Eco-Print II: Now what? With Kathy Johnson. Sunday, September 29, 2019. 10 AM- 3 PM. $85.00 ($25.00 deposit holds your space). Bring a lunch or order out; snacks, water and tea included.
Wondering what to do with all those eco-prints you made?
Bring them and any other prints or papers you have and transform them into unique and meaningful works. Learn simple bookbinding techniques so you can try a variety of fun book styles. Take those less than perfect prints and enhance with watercolor, pencil or ink. Combine with other papers to make a one of a kind collage. Use basic stitches (running stitch, French knot, etc.) to embellish or to attach natural elements (feathers, bark, sticks, dried leaves, etc.) to your work. Bring your favorite quote or short poem to incorporate into your pages. Focus on just one project or try as many techniques as you’d like.
Supplies & tools that will be available for you to use: Cards and envelopes (enough to make 3 cards per person), watercolor paints and pencils, brushes, walnut ink, micron pens, scissors, embroidery thread and needles, glue sticks, acrylic medium, an awl and paper piercing tools, bone folder, rulers, cutting matts, paper cutter and paper punches, papers and backing board for collage. I’ll bring my favorite bookbinding and paper folding books to supply plenty of ideas and examples to inspire. Feel free to bring any of your own favorite tools or supplies that you would like to use.
This class is open to anyone who has papers or prints of any kind that you would like to create with.
