Attachment and Devotion

As artists, we strive to create beautiful art, yet oftentimes we experience both difficulty and frustration when it comes to creatively joining objects to one another. Attachment is an art form in its own right and in this spirited two-day workshop, you will construct a devotional/shine from raw wood (finished size approx 8"x5") and learn myriad techniques that ensure secure and flawless attachments. You will also learn to hand-form a tin top in the "nicho" tradition, embellished with grommets, rivets and eyelets, or create one from found materials, enhance and texture the surface of your box using combinations of paper, paints, wax and more and how to effectively incorporate your objects and/or images.
