Book of Memories

After meeting Judy last year, and seeing her amazing mixed media books, I immediately knew I wanted to have her teach a workshop. I'm happy to let you know that Australian artist Judy Wilkenfeld will be joining us for a 2 day workshop on August 1 & 2. This will be only her 2nd visit to the states to teach, so please plan accordingly.

Judy will lead us through her methods for creating mixed media books she calls Visual AnthologiesTM, as we each create a Book of Memories of our own. Judy has been commisioned to document the life stories of clients using photos, memorabilia, and found objects to let the story of their history be told without the use of words. She will share with you how to bind a book from book board, the aging of fabrics, paper, photos, and metal, the use of smbolism, the application of mica, and acrylics, and much, much more. To see more of Judy's beautiful work please visit her blogs Red Velvet Creations, and Visual Anthologies.

This class is suitable for all skill levels. With a full two days spent together, you will come away from this workshop with your creative well filled. Please e-mail me at for registration information. Space is extremely limited. The cost for both days is $285.00
