Preserving our precious memories, photo’s and memorabilia in a book form is the theme for our workshop.
We will spend 2 days creating a book starting from 2 antique book covers. It will be very dimensional. The inner book will be made accordion style especially good for newbie’s to mixed media books.
We all have our favorite photos and memorabilia of/from family and or those closest to us. My experience with documenting people’s life stories reveals that we only need a few photos and or items to preserve the memories.
You will learn how to use symbolism, color, texture, found objects and your memorabilia to tell the story of those nearest and dearest to you – WITHOUT WORDS.
Techniques you will learn to apply:
- Binding a book from cover boards
- The aging of fabrics, papers, images and metals
- The adhering of dimensional mixed media items
- The use and application of mica and acrylics
- The use of symbolism
- Working with wire
- The creation of a shadow box within a book
- Layering of mixed media objects
