As I was growing up I dreamed of being an archeologist. I had a deep love of history, stories, and the idea of uncovering what was hidden. It was not until I was a working artist that I found it surprising that so many of the other artists that I admired also had this same dream as a child. I find it beautiful to realize that so many of the artists that I connect with create work with layers, stories of family, and history, including vintage elements and the mystery of what can be uncovered. I guess many of us get to be those archeologists in many ways now. One of those artists is Erin Faith Allen. I first connected with Erin as a filmmaker and later as a storyteller through art. Erin is back with another course on our creative network and this time she will be creating a gorgeous, stitched, layered book and at the end of the course your book will be filled with the beauty of YOU!

As a creative being, you are intrinsically absorbent, sensitive, and free spirited. This (very) mixed media workshop is the perfect opportunity to slow down, look inward, and connect with the truest part of you: your unique, absolutely one-of-a-kind soul.

 

Through gathering ephemera that deeply expresses your truth and beauty, collaging, stitching, mark making, and *listening* to Who You Really Are, you will take the plunge deep into a soothing wellspring of life that lives inside you.

At the end of this workshop, you will have a visual book created in quiet meditation as you seek, feel, dwell within, and express the kaleidoscope of passions and dreams that makes you who you are. And, you will learn the finest art of all: the art of nourishing your analog soul in a digital world.
