About the workshop:

Once a year, I open my studio for this hands-on workshop to learn how to make your own mixed-media shrine or shadow-box, and it is always a blast! 

Don't miss this opportunity to:

  • Create your very own assemblage in a shrine or shadow box form!
  • Learn about the diverse styles and fascinating history of shrine-making and assemblage art
  • Play with paper, paint, glue, random ephemera, natural bits and shiny things
  • Experiment with layering techniques and use of text
  • Delve into the wonderful world of glues and...
  • Get your creative juices flowing!

NO SPECIAL SKILLS OR ART EXPERIENCE REQUIRED - 
JUST A WILLINGNESS TO GET STICKY AND EXPERIMENT WILDLY

Please bring a box to work in.   Great options include: cigar boxes, small dresser or jewelry-box drawers, pre-made craft-store shadow boxes, etc.

All other basic materials are included in the price of the workshop, including:  glues, acrylic paints, papers, ephemera, glitter, etc.  I pretty much put my whole stash out there for you to pick through!

Students are also encouraged to bring special materials you want to incorporate into your piece.  You are also welcome to bring stuff you want to swap or share.

The workshop is designed for adults but mature teens are welcome, too. 

Students will receive detailed information via email after registering.
