 3-Day Virtual Workshop

Thursday-Saturday

November 11-13, 2021

Dating back as far as ancient Egypt, scrolls were forms of long documents used prior to the codex and bound book. They were commonly used for record keeping, religious manuscripts and paintings. A scroll was often rolled up and stored away or displayed hung on the wall.

During this 3-Day Virtual Event we’re going to take the scroll idea and create three unique projects. Each day a different artist/instructor will walk you step-by-step to create a handmade scroll through their approach and artistic style.

You will also learn a variety of mixed media techniques that will provide each of your scroll projects its own look and character.

The weekend will also include a Meet the Instructors Night pre-workshop event, daily raffle giveaways gifted by the Artists themselves to the lucky winners and daily recordings for later viewing (Visit Frequently Asked Questions page for more details). 

Join us as we gather in our virtual workshop space and

create in the comfort of your home

Day 1 | Roxanne Evans Stout

 

Thursday 10:00 am – 3:30 pm (PST)

 
Roxanne will kick off the weekend by walking you through your first Illuminated Scroll! Together we will create an enticing scroll out of fabric treated with layers of gesso and paint and then embellished with a blend of collaged fabric & papers, stitching and gatherings from nature. Roxanne will also show you how to incorporate an easy weave into your scroll to hold sticks and other found objects. 
 
For a special touch, we will also be incorporating Roxanne’s newest stencil designs to your creation. 
[These will be released October 7th from StencilGirl Products and should get to you well before the workshop!]
 
To see some of her other designs, visit StencilGirlProducts.com
 
Your majestic scroll will be a stunning work of art both when rolled up and opened to be hung on the wall, revealing your visual stories.

Materials you will need for Roxanne’s workshop

  • Piece of white cotton, about 20”x 5”, I used the fabric from an old pillow case, (muslin or linen would also work)
  • White gesso

Day 2 | Seth Apter

Friday 10:00 am – 3:30 pm (PST)

An Illuminated Scroll is typically a historical document on which decorative borders and small drawings are added to the text. We are going to take this traditional concept and mixed-mediafy both the illustrations and the structure. In our workshop we will be focused on surface design using the Gelli Plate along with paint, ink, stamps, and stencils. We will replace the formal text seen in traditional scrolls with our own mark making language. Our structure will fold rather than roll and nest within its own attached folded folio. The techniques we cover go far beyond the class project and can easily be integrated into your daily creative practice.

Materials you will need for Seth’s workshop

  • Five 5 x 4 inch and one 5 x 9.25 inch pre-cut pieces of heavy weight (140lb) watercolor paper or other, similar material such as cardboard. Please note that the entire surface will be covered.
  • Acrylic Paint – I will be using PaperArtsy Fresco Finish Acrylics 
  • Spray Ink – I will be using Aladine Dye Spray
  • Dye-based Ink Pads
  • Dry Waxed Paper –15+ sheets (packs of 20 sheets available at SethApter.com)
  • Printer Paper and Book Pages with Text – 15+ sheets
  • Washi Tape
  • Fluid Matte Medium and brush for gluing
  • Glue Stick
  • Gelli Plate – 8 x 10 inch size preferred but other sizes will work
  • Brayer
  • Smooth Craft or Makeup Sponges
  • Ruler
  • Scissors
  • Stencils
  • Unmounted Background Stamps
  • Mark Makers – favorite pencils, markers, etc.
  • Bone Folder (optional but very helpful)
  • Heat Tool (optional)
