$ 150  

The title refers to seeds, pods, leaves and all those Earthen elements that the wind picks up and carries away. In this workshop we will be crafting a box and the book that is housed within. Kind of like a pod itself. The pages of our books will encompass assorted studies of wind-carried elements that will be embedded between assorted transparent and translucent papers. The book frame is made of white watercolor paper that opens to a star, which allows the inner pages to shine through, literally.

Materials Fee paid directly to instructor at beginning of class $20.00 includes:
Box materials, assorted translucent papers, watercolor paper, tissue paper, stencils, paper punches, stamps and ink, color mists, paint, embossing powders, extra pressed foliage.

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class: Assorted flat Earthen elements: pressed flora, small seeds, feathers, small sticks, etc. Bone folder, ruler, gel medium, white acrylic paint, soft brushes, tacky glue, regular masking tape (not blue), white modeling paste w/ applicator, craft heat gun, scissors, craft knife

Optional items: Apron

Many of the required supplies may be pre-ordered from Artistic Artifacts.  They will be ready and waiting for you to pick up when you arrive at the retreat.  For further info and to place your order,  please visit: http://www.artisticartifacts.com.
