Would you love to make your own books full of colors, textures, and patterns?

Join me for this two-day workshop at Art and Soul, Portland to create a Wanderer’s Book of Colors reminiscent of medieval times.

We will make the covers out of antique door hinges, which I will provid for you, and I’ll also give you vintage colored silks to cover your pages.

On the first day, we will explore two different ways to cover the pages and edges, first with pan pastels and paints, and then with the vintage silk. We will also make self drying beads to use on our book spines.

On the second day, we will explore stitching, attaching, and collaging simple details onto your pages. I will show you how to put your book together with a unique and easy process.

You will go home with your own handmade book that tells the story of a beautiful gathering of artistic souls along with the colors, textures and patterns that you love.

Join Lorri Scott and me for a mixed media adventure as we teach Storyscapes together over two days.

Storytelling With Collage

to Jun 16

Storytelling With Collage

Arts & Cultural Travel is about more than seeing paintings in a museum: It’s about private studio visits and impromptu lessons from skilled artisans.  It’s about behind-the-scenes invitations to absorb knowledge passed down through generations, like how the vibrant colors swirling around in giant metal pots came from natural dyes, or where to find the purest, most malleable clay for pottery, or the trick to weaving vibrantly colored cotton into kaleidoscopic tapestries.  It’s about human connection through art.

(Exact times TBD)

Archetypal Expressions
May
27
to May 28

Archetypal Expressions

Join Roxanne Evans Stout and Tonia Jenny

and celebrate spring and art

at River Garden Studio.

Together we’ll explore

creating and working

with personal symbols

that express

the four archetypes

associated with these principles.

With guided questions, we’ll discover the answers to what the Warrior, the Healer, the Visionary and the Teacher have to tell us about what we need more of in our lives.

Life becomes lighter and simpler when we practice these four basic principles:

Show up and be present.

Pay attention to what has heart and meaning.

Trust your insight.

Be open and objective by surrendering

to the love of the universe.

 

On our first day...

Universal symbols already exist for the four archetypes, but we're going to get more personal and figure out what our own symbols are to represent what stage we're in with each, currently on our individual paths. To do this, we'll use pen and paper to explore the answers to prompts and questions, and then let our intuition speak, as symbols emerge to express both our original medicine (the unique gifts we offer to the world) as well as what it is we ourselves need for growth. 

Once we have our four symbols sketched, we'll carve them into soft blocks to then create four small cement tiles (or paper clay embellishments)—one symbol cast in each. Next, we'll enjoy the process of adhering our tiles and smaller glass bits to a wood box using more cement and embellishing with paint. By the end of day one, we'll each have a sacred vessel to hold what we'll create on day two!

And on our second day...

To arrive at our symbols, we distilled a lot of thoughts and expressions. Day two will be our time to explore in more depth the answers to the prompts and questions from day one. Using Roxanne's story-collage process, we'll create stamps for our symbols and use them to create one page on wood to honor each of our for archetypes—the Warrior, the Healer, the Visionary and the Teacher using texture, color, words, objects (if desired) and additional symbols that show up along the way.
