Materials & Information

Learn to make an AMAZING multifaceted pocket book and fill it with the most wondrous works of art! During this workshop you will learn three variations of a pocket book (plus numerous adaptations and options) as well as methods of creating miniature artworks to fill the pockets. I'll show you some really easy and very addictive abstract techniques from which you can create your own tiny paintings and sculptures! You may choose to recreate some tiny master works of art using painting and collage...or maybe combine the two and have your own art sat next to a Picasso!!. There is so many options making this a really fun and versatile project for all abilities and creative backgrounds.

This is a relaxing workshop suitable for all...and you don't need to be able to draw! ...promise!!
