In this workshop Roxanne will share her unique process of stitching and wiring and taking seemingly ordinary objects and turning them into beautiful works of art. Students will create a beautiful and intriguing hand-made book from textured papers, canvas and cloth.

We will collage, stitch, wire and weave found objects, small treasures from nature, tattered fabrics and lace, rusty metal bits and mementos from your own history into the pages of your own unique Alchemist's book of Treasures. Roxanne will guide you in creating a book filled with the mystery that lies under the surface of each of your creative journey.
