In addition, our talented CAA members also hold collage and mixed media workshops, and these are detailed in our newsletter, along with other Regional and National Collage workshops. (The current newsletter is posted on our Home page.)

Collage Artists of America Invites you to attend an exclusive workshop:
1-day workshop with Author and Book Maker, Jeannine Stein
Date: Tuesday, March 4, 2014
Time: 10:00am – 4:00pm (includes one hour lunch break, lunch provided.) You may arrive at 9:30am to set up your station.
In this one-day workshop you will create a Collaged Book in a Box: It's a book…it's a box…it's a collaged masterpiece! In this workshop we'll create a book that comes in its own fold-up box. After constructing the box, we'll sew in pages using an easy binding that has a big "wow" factor. Then we'll learn a handy method for making a string tie closure and construct a pop-out map and envelope. The remainder of the class will be spent collaging the inside and outside of the book, using vintage ephemera, stencils, stamps and other exciting media. No previous bookbinding experience is required to make this one-of-a-kind masterpiece!
