Both of us are SO excited to be teaching our fabulous LOVELY CREATURES 5 Day Book Art Workshop (based on The Exquisite Corpse) this September in the delightful hamlet of Burritt's Rapids, in the historic Community Hall, less than an hour south of Ottawa! You’ll be playing with acrylic paint, Seth's 7 new mind blowing texture mediums, collage, stamps, stencils, poems, very short stories, quotes + phrases, vintage imagery…
Join us for this very special, five day mixed media book art workshop! Inspired by The Exquisite Corpse, you'll create LOVELY CREATURES in three parts — the top third of the page is a head, the middle of the page is, well, the middle and at the bottom of the page are legs and feet. Each page is sectioned into three parts, enabling you to turn each one individually and discover a new LOVELY CREATURE. What fun!!!
Over the week you'll create this awesome mixed media book and a fabulous box to house it in using paint, collage (including images and text), mixed media, stencils and stamps. While there will be a few fun, short collaborative exercises to spark ideas, you will be creating your own pages, covers and box. There are so many techniques and mediums to explore!!!
Seth will show you how to use his 7 new mixed media textures that will blow your mind! Best of all, they will be available for purchase. In addition to book binding and box making, he will be highlighting techniques involving mark making, surface design, stamping, stenciling, writing, stitching, and texturizing.
Holly will show you how to use her favourite mixed media techniques and materials. In addition to book binding and box making, she will be highlighting techniques involving collage, transfers, scraping, peeling, layering and of course, words.
It's a whole week for you to dive deeply into the making of a piece of book art filled with these LOVELY CREATURES, supported by two knowledgeable, enthusiastic teachers!
