Gatherings II

Spend two days learning several different "framing" techniques to create shallow shadowboxes on vintage book covers from such everyday items as dowel rods, box tops, matchboxes, and mica. Create one, two, or more art pieces that can be tucked within a ribboned "portfolio" that will hold your treasured artwork as a unified piece, lovely to place on a coffee table or shelf, or easily untied and disassembled so that your shadowboxes can be hung as individual designs on the wall. This will be a time of discussing various methods to work with dimensional items from nature, or relatively flat treasures gathered throughout the years, using wire, nails, brads, glue, and fabric to take your work "off the page", to the next dimension.
