2019 Workshops


 

Zhen Xian Bao

A Chinese Thread Kit with Eco-dyed Paper

with Leslie Marsh and Bee Shay

September 21-22, 2019

Seamstresses the world over need some sort of container in which to store their precious threads, as well as the many tools needed for their craft.

Zhen Xian Bao (jen shee-ahn bah-oh) -- which translates to "Needle Thread Pocket" in Chinese, were cleverly made portable books created by women in minority ethnic groups in China, to carry their beloved sewing notions. The books were utilitarian and hand-made, beautifully designed to hold embroidery threads, needles, scraps of paper, fabric, household receipts and other bits of ephemera and personal memorabilia. It is an ingenious domestic filing system that holds an astonishing number of things in its folding compartments.

Join Leslie Marsh and Bee Shay, as they put a new twist on the Chinese Thread Book, using eco and indigo-dyed papers. Students will create their own 15-pocket Zhen Xian Bao, and then embellish the books with handmade stamps, stitching and drawings.

We will spend an entire day dyeing the papers and fabric for the covers; using both eco-dye and Indigo, and then put it all together and embellish as desired on the second day of this workshop. In between, Bee Shay will demonstrate how to create a separate needle book, using the same dyed fabric and wool. And if that isn't enough, she'll also guide us in creating our own stamps to embellish our books!

Poetic Inspiration

An Art Journaling Workshop

with Susie Zolghadri

September 28, 2019

Inspired by poetry, our imaginations take us to new worlds. We define for ourselves the implication and intention of each line. We take comfort in the gentle stirrings of a lyrical poem, seek refuge in the safety of a narrative, let our dreams take flight in a dramatic passage. Using lines from poems as guideposts, discover creative expressions in your art journal.

Art journaling is a powerful way to re-connect with your soul, set your creative spirit free and express yourself. Playfully creating with paint, writing, collage, mark-making and more, you’ll learn to build trust in your creative process.

ARTIST BIO:

Born and raised in the green mountains of Vermont, Susie's family is filled with artists, musicians, weavers, ceramicists, painters and photographers and they have all had their influence on her. She is drawn to nature in all its forms and find it frequently emerging as a theme in her work. "I am an artist." says Susie and we agree!

"Every time I approach the canvas or journal page, I am ready to gain an understanding of my emotional and intellectual connection with life. There is always a reflection from within, along with the gift of clarity and purpose. I paint intuitively, letting layers of paint, fabric, collage and paper interact and unfold into a story. When I discover the story within the painting, its meaning comes into focus. When the meaning has been revealed, my painting is complete."

The Wanderers Book of Colors

with Roxanne Evans Stout

November 1-3, 2019

Join Roxanne in her very popular workshop, The Wanderer’s Book of Colors! This book is reminiscent of medieval times, with an edge! In this three day workshop, we will not only create our book, but a beautiful hand stitched bag to protect it.  We will even make an Autumn Talisman out of found objects! The cover will be made of an antique door hinge, which will be provided for you by Roxanne, along with vintage colored silks to cover your pages.

On the first day you will enjoy different ways to cover the page edges, first with pan pastels and paints and then with the vintage silk. We will also make some stone clay beads to use on our book spines.

During the second day we will explore stitching, attaching, and collaging simple details on your pages, finally putting your book together in a unique and easy process.

And on the third day we will make our Autumn Talisman and a beautiful felt bag to house both our books and our talismans.

Your will go home with your own handmade creations that together tell the story of the colors, textures and patterns that you love, the things you are grateful of, and memories of a nourishing gathering of like souls.
