Using a bit of artistic license, we'll construct a medieval manuscript documenting Chimeras and similar creatures typical of the time ... or in our own minds. Our main focus will be on preparing this codex and making it ready to accommodate all our quirky constructions on gilded pages. A few collage sheets will be provided and more are available for purchase. Join us in creating this delightful and generous sized journal (8 1/2" X 13"). You'll only need to bring a few other basic supplies that you probably already have on hand.

While this is not a difficult class, it may also interest advanced students, as this is not a typical book structure.
