For those of you visiting the Catskill Mountains of New York, you will find some of my work here at the Guild and here
One of the steampunk inspired items I have there at the guild in Woodstock NY!
Illuminated Manuscripts have always fascinated me. I can envision the Monks laboriously working, taking such care to get all the details just right with just the light from their candles to work by.
I recently finished a class on how to make a mixed media journal from Artful Gathering. http://atozinnia.org/ The class was taught by Luthien Thye, and it was called Beyond Time.
Of course it does not compare to the manuscripts of old, but I had such fun creating it!
The first time I met Stephanie Lee was when I bought her book Semiprecious Salvage. I was so inspired by her work that after my daughter moved out of the apartment off the garage, I had my hubby turn it into a workshop for me! He built me a great work bench to play with metals and jewelry.
By reading Stephanie's blog I was able to take another class from her called Handbook of Elements. It was a class on journal making. Very informative and so interesting! I learned so much!
Then I took another class on Metalsmithing from her as well, Stephanie is very generous with sharing her knowlege and quite gracious and accommodating.
I really enjoyed everything I learned from her, and look forward to more creative endeavors!
