In this day-long workshop, you will create a small (5 x 9 inch) wooden shadowbox with a peaked roof to be used as a unique way to honor a loved one, or as a tiny piece of real estate dedicated to celebrating yourself, your past, your future, and your hopes and dreams. You may choose to use the pre-made wooden form that Alice provides, or, with ample instruction, construct your own in class. Alice will teach you the use of a broad variety of media including gesso, gel medium, acrylic glazes, transfers, found objects, mica, alcohol inks, and more! She will provide an abundant pile of her personal miniature treasures and embellishments, but you are welcome to bring your own to use.
