Upcoming classes at Roadhouse Arts

Thursday, February 12, 2015

I have some upcoming classes at Roadhouse Arts that I want to tell you about.

The first one is:

Mixed Media Book of Treasures-

Create a book you'll treasure for years to come, a special place to keep memories, thoughts, and things you treasure. We will deconstruct a vintage book and replace the pages with watercolor paper, copper mesh pocket, paper, and fabric all dyed to invoke a sense of nostalgia. The pages will be rebound using a stitch we'll adorn with beads, trinkets, and even more treasures. Books, pages, materials, and tools will be provided but feel free to bring your own favorite photographs, beads, trinkets, or other ephemera.

                                                      2 sessions 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.
No prerequisite – beginners welcome!
Workshop Fee: $129
Materials Fee: $35
Dates: Saturday and Sunday, February 28 and March 1, 2015

Fire and Ice: Using Metal Solder with Resin

2 sessions 9:30 a.m. – 5:30 p.m.In this two-day, two-part workshop we'll combine resin and solder to make an embellished metal tin and wearable book necklace. On day one, we'll dive into the uses and application of two-part resins.  We'll make several pieces and learn about the many techniques suitable for resin. On day two, after the resin has set overnight, we'll learn a flooded solder technique using lead free solder wire and small butane torches to create textured metal for incorporation in our pieces. All materials will be provided - just come and have fun!

No prerequisite – beginners welcome!
Workshop Fee: $129

Dates: Saturday and Sunday, April 11 & 12, 2015

Little Bitty Glass Journal

In this workshop we will construct an itty bitty glass soldered journal. It will be bound with a multi-needle Coptic stitch, which can be used to make a multitude of book styles. This great little piece of art will be constructed with covers that have a window showing through to the inside of the book. Instruction includes soldering with a soldering iron and a butane torch. Join us for a day of fun!

Howdy friends,

I am teaching next Sunday February 8th at Roadhouse Arts.  We are doing an *Intro to Bookbinding* class that will showcase both a hard cover traditional book and an exposed sewing book.

Bookbinding is a timeless art form and this one-day workshop offers all the information you need to get started. We will cover basic terminology, tools, and construction methods, and you'll leave with two different sewn handmade books - a case bound (hard back) book and an exposed stitch book. All materials are provided but feel free to bring bookbinding supplies (bone folder, awl, binding needles) if you have them. Screen Shot 2015-01-27 at 4.58.54 PM

I finally got around to listing some things on Etsy too.  I really love this new batch of jewelry I made!  Check out my Etsy shop here.
