Using the luminous elements of beeswax, the organic shimmery properties of mica and the vintage layers of a book, a new structure is birthed in a unique personal assemblage.

Together, Patrice Baker (Guest Artist) and Supria Karmakar will be altering books with you to create a unique piece of personal art. You will build spaces in your book to fill with your treasures and trinkets. You will also use transparent mica to create a window in the front cover as well as a page within the book. You will be able to layer ephemera between the sheets of mica for a fascinating effect. Pulling the whole book together with the luscious quality of encaustic.

No experience is necessary. To save your spot in this exciting fall creative session, or for a complete brochure for more information

Dates: Saturday November 5th, Sunday November 6th and Sat. November 12th and Sunday November 13th 10-4 each day, four full days of creativity.
