During this session we will be learning how to make a small artist book in the shape of a tea bag to fill with sketched and illustrated teacups. You might like to add herbal tea remedies, hand lettering and tea stains! You can also use the techniques taught to create a beautiful tea stained sketchbook spread if you'd prefer...or try both!
