Hungry for creativity? Build your own Bento Box filled with art in this technique-heavy workshop. We will be making a series of small-sized projects, each of which will nest inside its own container - for example, tins, boxes, bags, etc. Each of these will in turn be placed and housed inside one larger box, creating a very special treasure chest. Techniques will include acrylic painting, collaging, book binding, hand stitching, mark making, heat embossing, mixed media layering, stamping, assemblage, and more. Your unique art pieces will include some combination of handmade books, paintings, collages, assemblages, scrolls, wraps, shrines, and more. We will also focus on surface altering techniques for your containers. Part of each day will revolve around focused and detailed demonstrations and instructions. Other periods will allow you to get into the zone without interruption. A significant amount of one-to-one creative mentoring will also be included during which time feedback will be provided. At workshops' end, we will take the time for a show-and-tell so you can see the work of your fellow attendees.
