Jingletown Winter Art Walk 2013

Jingletown Winter Art Walk 2013

About Jingletown: Jingletown acquired its name from Portuguese cannery workers whose earnings would “jingle” in their pockets at the end of the day as they walked home from the factories in the area, signifying prosperity.  As time went on the neighborhood went into disuse, but in the early 1980’s artists realized the potential and converted many of the neglected warehouses into functioning live/work spaces.  It is now a thriving artist community and one of the fastest growing arts districts in the Bay Area.

In a time when our neighborhood has been changing dramatically, the goal of the Jingletown Arts and Business Community is to heighten awareness about the rich and diverse population of working and exhibiting artists and the creative opportunities in the Jingletown Arts District.

Altered Books Workshop at Gray Loft Gallery

Altered Books Workshop
Taught by 
Laurie Wagner and Stephanie Williamson

Saturday, June 29
10:00 am – 5:00 pm

$130 per person

Workshop location:
Gray Loft Gallery, 2889 Ford Street, third floor, Oakland 

Registration is still open for this workshop.
Please contact us soon if you are interested, as the workshop is filling up.
Please email Laurie Wagner or the gallery to register. Pay by check or PayPal.
Learn how to make beautiful artist books by veteran bookmakers Stephanie Williamson and Laurie Wagner, who are passionate about bookmaking and have collaborated on numerous bookmaking workshops in the past.
Using actual books – flea market finds, cast-offs from used bookstores or children’s dictionaries from the 1940’s, vintage text books, an outdated atlas, old novels or how-to books. The books are the bones of the fabulous works of art we will create using collage, photos, paint, stencils, and assemblage, among many other techniques. We will incorporate some of the existing text or illustrations in our found books and add our own words and images to create gorgeous, mind blowing pieces.
You do not have to be an artist to create an altered book, although many artists working in different media find it a wonderful way to experiment with new materials and jump-start their inspiration. You just need to be someone who loves color, loves the shape of books, and loves getting messy with new art materials.
You will learn several specific techniques such as torn window collage….tags and envelopes…accordion  books within the book, …woven paper, niches and wells, stamping and stencils.  We will have lots of supplies to create and play. 
By the end of the day you will leave with a gorgeous altered book that you can take home to continue building on to create a finished project.

More information about the workshop and a materials list will be emailed to you upon request and/or registration.

Class size is limited. Please register soon to participate in this creative and fun workshop with these two dynamic instructors.
