Instructor: Deborah Fisher. Cost $57
Maximum amount of students - 6 and minimum amount of 4
In this workshop, you will make a traditional style Japanese journal with a contrasting decorative stich side binding but using an updated and non-traditional brown test paper. This journal is a bit more complicated than others Deborah has taught, so she is allowing a bit more time, just in case! It is a lovely journal and will make a wonderful gift for someone (or just for yourself). She will supply all the components for the journal but if possible, please bring a cutting mat, an Exacto knife, scissors and a bone folder. Deborah will have some extras to share. There will be an example of the journal to view at Art by the Sea Gallery. Everyone will have a different cover paper.
We will be taking a short break, so please bring something to eat if you would like (refrigerator space available).

The second journal will have an assortment of text papers for notes of all kinds. Each journal will have an elastic band closure to secure them. Deborah will provide all the materials but if you have some collage ephemera you would like to use for the covers, by all means, bring it! There are examples available at Art by the Sea Gallery to look at for ideas. After completing the journals, we will put together an accordian fold booklet that could be used as a small book, or also as a card. Deborah will provide an envelope just in case! She will have some supplies o share but if possible, please bring a metal ruler, a bone folder and an awl.

The focus will then be to work with those backgrounds to make them into coherent paintings, using either watercolors or liquid acrylics and two different painting techniques; negative space painting and value capture painting.
Some painting experience will be helpful. A materials list for this class will be on view at Art by the Sea Gallery & Studio.
