Hungry for creativity? Build your own Bento Box filled with art in this technique-heavy workshop.
We will be making a series of small-sized projects, each of which will nest inside its own container – for example, tins, boxes, bags, etc. Each of these will in turn be placed and housed inside one larger box, creating a very special treasure chest. In the process of creating your unique artwork, techniques you will learn will involve acrylic painting, collage, book binding, hand stitching, mark making, surface design and alteration, heat embossing, mixed media layering, stamping, assemblage, and more.
Every workshop is slightly different based on the dynamics and skill-level of the attendees but your unique art pieces will include some combination of handmade books, paintings, collages, assemblages, scrolls, wraps, shrines, and more. In addition, we will focus on altering the large and smaller containers with a menu of surface altering techniques. Part of each day will revolve around focused and detailed demonstrations and instructions. Other periods will be more tailored to you being able to get into the zone and create without interruption. A significant amount of one-to-one creative mentoring will also be included during which time feedback will be provided. At the workshop’s end, we will take the time for a show-and-tell so you can see the work of all your fellow attendees.
