P269 - A Portfolio Journal

Kelly Kilmer
9:00 - 4:30
Tuesday - March 12

[back to quicklinks]
$ 155  

This has always been my favorite time of year, where one turns inward. I think of it as a time for renewal, introspection and a time to reconnect with yourself and the world around you.

In this special workshop, you will create a unique and personal journal portfolio. Learn new techniques in: layering, collage, painting, mark making and more. Create rich pages along with a colorful portfolio (additional ideas for bookbinding and more will be discussed and available if you would rather turn your portfolio into a bound journal.)

This class has been months in the making and I am very eager to share it with you.

Supply list you need to bring to class:
 an apron, scissors, a small selection of favorite collage ephemera (think about reading this when choosing your images and papers), bone folder, cork back metal ruler, a full roll of paper towels OR old rags, permanent black ink pad (only if you have one), a container for your paint water, 1 to 2" brush to glue and paint (I like chip or bristle brushes) as well as a few, smaller, detailed brushes, a few of your favorite glue sticks (large glue sticks will last you longer), roll of waxed paper OR an old catalog or magazine to glue on (if you don't want to use all of your waxed paper for this.)


Most of the required supplies for your classes can be pre-ordered from Collage. 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, contact:
