*For the Framable Art project ...bring a mat and/or frame of your choice. You will want
the opening to be 8 X10 or larger! (I buy CLEARANCE framed art at HomeGoods, but
make sure you disassemble it & remove the old art so it is ready to go that day!)
*Calligraphers: ...in addition bring your favorite pens, black & white gouache, mixing
brushes, water bottle, pencils, eraser, ruler, paper towels & any other calligraphic tools
that you wish.
*Non-CalligraDhers will be given some instructions/guidance on how to add text to your
project in an easy way. You may want to print out your text ahead of time on nice paper, in
segments which can then be cut apart and added to the page, although not necessary. If
you wish to try some writing of text, please bring pencils & gel pens in white and/or black.
*ALL levels of skill and enthusiasm are welcomed.
*PLEASE be prompt as there is a lot to cover in 6 short hours.
*Bring your own lunch to eat as you wish (there is a small refrigerator but no microwave)
*Parking is FREE at Dunham Recreation Center
For those who would like to take this class, but do not have Paste Paper or some of the
other listed materials, DO NOT let that stop vou! We will have Paste Paper for sale and
sharable supplies aplenty. Arches Text Wove and other decorative papers will also be
available for sale by the sheet.

Pictures above are the boxes some of us worked on at the January meeting and Carla's crackle technique sample. The crackle technique is from Claudine Hellmuth's 2nd book: Collage Discovery Workshop--Unexpected Techniques (http://www.amazon.com/Collage-Discovery-Workshop-Unexpected-Techniques/dp/1581806787)
