MIXED MEDIA & BOOK ARTS
Create an assemblage that is a visual metaphor, an autobiographical statement or an abstract collaged collection of metals and art elements found in nature or recycled from daily life. Use a flat piece of wood as a base. Cut shapes from thin-gauge copper or brass. Add texture, line, form and color as you hammer, stamp, punch, emboss, bend, fold, crunch, twist, forge, fringe and oxidize metal shapes using a variety of tools and metalsmithing techniques. Create cold-connections and add linear movement with wires you twist, coil, spiral, sew, and rivet. Arrange metals and ‘found’ ephemera (buttons, twigs, stones, glass shards, etc.) into an art composition and attach everything to the base with adhesives, copper and brass wires, and an array of colorful tacks and nails. All tools and materials provided. No experience necessary.

Spend two days in goo! Learn how to make a beautiful decorative bowl using paper maché and your imagination. Choose from many molds or bring your own (most any bowl will work). Rip apart paper and start pasting. Decorative papers and old magazines and books will be available. Start with the basic bowl shape and go from there by building up layers of newsprint to create your work of art! The second workshop is all about finishing and decorating with fancy papers and imagery from books and magazines. Easy and fun! Goo (flour paste) is supplied. Learn recipes, techniques and some design theory.
