Workshop description:

Create a sacred space for your abstracted and intimate stories in this layered artist book. Enter the space through a carved copper door, wander through illustrated spreads and create a small altar of offerings. Make this hardcover cathedral book while also learning new techniques with copper, clay, paint finishes and framed illustrations. We will illustrate a page with provided imagery prompts and then deconstruct it to make the pages for our book. Do not worry, no art experience is necessary! This book was featured in 1,000 Artists’ Books: Exploring the Book as Art by Peter and Donna Thomas.
