Create your own story and personal narrative. Stories can come to us from our inner self, or they might arrive as messages from the collected stories of others. This is a hand papermaking, collage and book building workshop. Participants will make their own handmade papers with embossing and embedded materials. Once dry, we will paint and collage these pages with our own personal stories and narratives, either written, typed, or collaged from other sources. Simple bookbinding techniques will be included to create our very own completely handmade and from scratch art book.
Material Cost: $30
About the Instructor:
Born in Sicily, Angie Follensbee-Hall is a Mixed Media and Handmade Paper artist. Angie transforms mixed media sources: rope, paper, paint, plant fibers and botanicals. Her inspiration comes from the world of nature: the wisp of wind swaying in a Winter wind, or the small sprout searching for the sun’s nourishment in Spring. The world of spirit, myth, and nature are all sources of artistic inspiration. In each creation, she invokes a meditative quality, reflecting upon the world of myth and nature, suggesting a connection between all beings at their source. Angie studied art and art education, and holds a BFA degree and is enrolled in a Masters of Arts program at Goddard College. She has won several art awards, including the Bjorvard Drawing Award, and NH League of Craftsmen Best in 2D design.
