I spent this past weekend teaching workshops at The Queen's Ink in Maryland. The Queen's Ink is among my most favorite venues to teach out of and the owner, Patti Euler, is a favorite too. Her shop is located in Savage Mill, a restored cotton mill. Have a look inside...
I taught three new workshops here for the first time: Viewfinder, Dimensional Stenciling and Brick by Brick.
In Viewfinder, we got our Spellbinders on and created Japanese stab bound books with windows using die cuts, texture plates, and more.
In Dimensional Stenciling, we experimented with an array of approaches to stenciling and used some of the newest and best texture-making products on the market.
Everybody created a technique/product guide that they could refer to in the future as well as these amazing artworks:
Brick by Brick, my third workshop, is an urban grunge, graffiti inspired class.
It got off to a great start, with painting, group monoprinting, and collage.
Unfortunately, mother nature had another idea.
An ice storm sadly shut down the venue and we had to stop 2 hours into the class. I have to say that I am impressed with how well everybody handled this. I will be returning to The Queen's Ink on June 7 to make this workshop up and will hold another workshop on June 6.
