Adult finger painting! It really is that fun - a great stress reliever and personal favorite. Join Jackie Hefty from Whispering Woodlands and explore the freedom of expressing yourself making creative decorative papers for collage, scrapbooking, wrapping, or as decorative papers for the book arts. Simple techniques, kitchen and junk drawer tools, and few limitations allow you to follow up with more at home. Some supplies provided; paper recommendations on supply list that is sent to you. Bring a smock. No prior experience necessary. Adults and youth (ages 15 and up with an adult); each attendee pays registration fee. Limited space; register early.

No adhesive, needles, or sewing either! One sheet of paper can become a book with the correct folding, creasing, and cutting. (Think paper dolls.) Join Jackie Hefty from Whispering Woodlands for this workshop and explore the possibilities of meandering books, accordion books with folded paper covers, and a pocket accordion. Bring some decorative papers, if you'd like. You will also make a few of your own papers. Some materials provided; a supply list will be sent to you. No experience necessary. Adults and youth (ages 15 and up with an adult); each attendee pays registration fee. Limited space; register early.

Based on using a conventional size of 8 1/2 x 11", we will create a housing for papers, books and treasures. Adjustments for various sizes will be discussed for individualized future projects. A good metal ruler, a sharp utility knife, a cutting matt and a clear head will be most important.  Participants will have the opportunity to customize the covers with commercially available materials or personalized, hand decorated options.   Sat/Sun,  Oct 14 & Oct 15,   1 - 4:30   $115/$20 supply fee

Eco Printing on Paper Jacqueline Sullivan

Eco Printing is all the rage!  As seen in several of the art periodicals, Eco printing is leaf printing on either cloth or paper. This class will feature the art of printing on paper with an assortment of leaves. Utilizing the variety of paper choices (you bring) large or small, and assorted leaves and mordants (provided) you will create the prints. Learn how to best prepare the papers for printing and what items may be added to the cooking process (think dye bath) to create various effects. Papers will be cooked in a communal roaster to create the unique, magical prints.

On the second day, we will keep the roasters going, as we use the printed papers from day one to create an interactive and collaged, artists book. (Flaps, folds, openings, etc.)    Sat Oct 21 & Sun Oct 22  10 a.m. - 4 p.m.  $305/$20 materials

Finish It! Kay Brathol-Hostvet

We all have those unfinished projects--paintings, collage, drawings. Whether you just need the time, new ideas, or fresh eyes to view your work, this workshop should help generate some completed projects. This loosely-structured workshop will include beginning and ending group critiques, handouts and "ideas" examples, and uninterrupted work time with as much or as little personal attention from the instructor as you request. Saturday, October 28, 10-4 $95
