Poets + Misfits Live Art Workshop with Jeanne Oliver


Workshop Details

Join me in my studio for a two-day workshop all about journal making, fabric dying, stitching, creating small compositions and mounting them on wood, mark making on vellum, newsprint and vintage ephemera and working with raw canvas to create gorgeous works of art.

Through layers and texture, we will create large and small bodies of work. Each piece will build upon each other and by the end of the workshop, you will have dyed fibers, stitched fabric and art collage pieces, a handmade journal full of your marks, and a few abstract pieces created with plaster, concrete, stitches, layers,  paint, marks, and collage.

Find your authentic marks through your art and explore new ways to bring those marks to life.

Come and create in our beautiful studio where all supplies will be provided. You will enjoy a creative experience that promises to capture your attention through art, learning, beauty, nature and gorgeous food. Our hope is that you leave inspired and renewed.

Dyed + Stitched with Jeanne Oliver

Live Art Workshop at The Jeanne Oliver Studio

Castle Rock, CO | June 25th-26th, 2021

Our studio is light-filled and surrounded by wooded property that lends itself to exploring, creating and relaxing. You will have opportunities during workshops to also make your way through some of our wooded paths and find a spot to create. It is our heart’s desire that your time on our land and studio brings you rest and dreaming.

While you are in the area we will make sure to point you in the right direction to all of our favorite restaurants, hiking spots, and antique stores. Our town has been ranked one of the best towns in America and we have to agree. I suggest you stay a few extra days to enjoy the beauty of Colorado! Space is limited.
