Here's a preview and a better look at the inside of each book.
My first solo course will be available soon! In the Circle Books class, I’ll be teaching four different ways to construct circular books from start to finish. However, all of the techniques learned in these lessons will easily apply to any book no matter the size or shape. There are also techniques in creating watercolor backgrounds, collage fodder, and art journaling pages. I hope that students of the Circle Books course will be encouraged by my love of experimentation and use some of the problem solving techniques in this course to create a book that will fit their needs and interests. If I’ve offered a variety of choices and instilled some courage in students for them to be able to make their own custom book, I will feel that I’ve accomplished my goal when I set out to create this course.
I'm the executive producer of Fodder School-year round, online mixed media courses that encourages the making and use of collage fodder. We host a different teacher each month and guide you through the creation of collage fodder during the first half of the month, and then we focus on a project where we use the fodder you've created in the second half. This process repeats each month for 12 months with some bonus lessons thrown in by some of our teachers! Some of the art created include watercolor, paper dyeing, bookmaking, collage art, gelli prints, and more!
Fodder School 2 is happening right now! I'm teaching during the month of May 2023. I'm excited to share my lessons on making DIY washi tapes, using those tapes to decorate a box, which will contain our own handmade postcards, which we will later swap with other Fodder School students, Whew! It's going to be a big month!
Learn what the word FODDER means and why it's important to your mixed media practice.
Fodder School is a 12 month, online mixed media course. Each month, one of 12 different teachers will guide you through making your own handmade collage fodder and then show how to use that fodder to make a unique project.
These are my Fodder School 2 projects so far, including October 2022 through March 2023.
