What Is Lost, Is Found

TBD
Great Barrington Library (Mason branch)

In this workshop we will use discarded books to create individual works of art. We will explore a variety of mixed media art including frottage and basic transfer techniques to make found word collages with stencils & acrylic & watercolor paints. When we work with old pages in this way, new stories emerge.

Suzi is like nourishing food for the writing soul. She made me feel like I can build a writing practice and be creative, and showed clear, tangible examples of how to do this. I had figured that since I wasn’t coming up with creative ideas as I sat in front of the computer, that maybe writing fiction or creative nonfiction just wasn’t going to happen for me. But I learned that there are ways to build that creativity and that it’s an essential part of the process if you want to have a successful writing life. - Anonymous
