In this workshop we will use the theme of trees and nature for inspiration as we create a unique, mixed media artist book that you will treasure! Trees symbolize so many different things. They are strong, they are rooted, and they stand tall to reach up to the sun. Trees branch out and they provide for us... and just like us they are all unique.

We will paint, collage, stitch, wire and attach to create beautiful pages that are filled with textured papers and fabrics, photographs, found objects and pieces of nature. You will leave the class filled with inspiration and holding a unique hand-made book, with pages that represent your own personal style and connection to nature.
