Treasured Values:
A multi-fold book of meaningful words and personal values
Saturday July 29, 2017


Inspired by an exercise from the book "Inner Excavation" by Liz Lamoreux, you will discover a wealth of words or values that resonate with you, that you will be able to keep and carry with you throughout your day. You will create an accordion book using a single sheet of paper to save and contain these meaningful words. You will also create a small protective box to store your multi-fold book so you can carry it with you, wherever you go!

 Techniques covered in this workshop are:
  • creating a colorful backdrop that will form the pages of your multi-fold book using watercolor crayons and stencils
  • folding and cutting paper to create a variation of a french fold book
  • creating a small box and cover much like a matchbox for storing your new book
  •  
The supplies for this workshop are included, HOWEVER, all students will need to bring one or two books that will be used for discovering your resonant words; be sure to bring 1-2 of your very favorite books along with your willingness to PLAY as we use and share our books to glean words that resonate with us!

Workshop will take place from 1:00pm to 3:30pm with refreshments afterward

Cost for this workshop:
$55
