Event Type

Join Kristin Peterson for an intimate, creative weekend. In this two full-day class, we will be creating a storied art journal using elementary binding principles that will create a quaint fragile-ness to our book. We will distress our favorite fabrics to give them a forever-loved look and feel. We will mindfully create pages with hand sewn details and art marks of our own. All while being attentive to our overall book composition.

So bring your curiosity and sense of wonderment!

This class is suitable for all experience levels, as we will be walking on the side of permission. Together. We will create and tell our stories as makers.

Class fee is $325. There are only 12 spots available and will go fast so sign up here:

Lunch, refreshments and light snacks will provided.

Kit Fee of $25 due the first morning of class. This includes vintage ephemera that has been carefully collected and curated, as well as a cabinet card to include in your book.

Kristin PetersonKristin Peterson is a third generation artist, originally from South Dakota. Kristin’s creative passion is inspired and supported by her husband and kids, all whom encourage, critique, and promote her work.

Kristin is always exploring and expanding the creative depths of being an artist. She very much enjoys vintage collage work and mixed media. Kristin loves color and things that have a love-worn comfortable feeling-like an old favorite pair of jeans-coffee stained, patched, painted and well loved. She wants her art to project feeling and make people feel good while looking at it. Her style contains vibrance mixed with a little funk, which is sprinkled with discreet sensibility.
