I will be teaching a workshop July 28 and 29 in my Santa Rosa studio about using handmade paper to create collage and mixed media artworks. The class is from 10 AM to 4 PM each day, Saturday and Sunday. The cost of the class is $200 and all materials and equipment are provided. My studio in Santa Rosa is at 3840 Finley Ave., Building 32, Studio 107 in Santa Rosa. On Saturday during the workshop we will work with a variety of wet pulps to create the handmade paper. On Sunday we will be creating mixed media and collage works using the handmade paper. There is still room available in this workshop which is limited to five people. To register please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org
If this date does not work for you, I will be teaching more workshops in the Fall, and the schedule will be posted here on my Blog soon.
Hope to see you soon in a papermaking workshop.
These photos show me working on a handmade paper mixed media work in 2016 as an artist in residence at the Boston Harbor Islands National Park. For this work about endangered water birds on the islands I am using handmade paper made from invasive plants on Peddock’s Island to create a large suspended installation that is now hanging in the Boston Harbor Islands Welcome Center at Long Wharf in Boston, MA.
In the first photo, I am helping a park visitor form one of the handmade paper birds. The next photo shows me putting together all of the birds to create the finished hanging installation using acrylic gel and natural thread and other materials collected on the island such as feathers, grasses and seeds. The last photo shows the finished installation hanging at the Welcome Center where visitors take the ferry to Boston Harbor Islands State Park.
