ADVENTURES IN EMBOSSING
Instructor: Janice Fisher
Skill Level: All Levels
Materials Fee: $10.00
Length of workshop: 1 day
Janice Fisher has developed a technique to create beautiful, intricate, hand embossing using simple materials and tools. She has used these techniques to produce flowers, gardens, animals, abstract images, desert landscapes and even an embossing of the first atomic bomb test. These embossing techniques will add beauty and meaning to your calligraphy and book art. You will learn how simple elements can be used to provide design accents or be combined to create landscapes and scenes. The key elements of graphic design, image selection, simplification and layering will be covered. Tools, paper selection, stencil production, design principles and perspective will be covered. Each student will leave the class with set of stencils they produced and the techniques to create beautiful hand embossing.
