Spring Workshop

Seth Apter, Roxanne Evans Stout and I have been planning a wonderful workshop for the spring

where the three of us will be hosting what is sure to be a magical weekend of creativity in New York City. On March 9th and 10th, we will be opening up the Little Bird Creations Studio to 10 people, who will spend two days making their own book, creating pages of art, and writing their own story.

You will start the weekend off by creating a book from scratch that will be the structure to house your art and stories. You will then be guided through a series of unique art activities to bring out your creative spirit and add art to your pages. Next you will write your own story and tell your tale on the pages of the book. You will finish up by binding your pages and pulling the whole project together. In between there will be special, creative exercises and a lot of bonding going on.

The workshop will begin from the moment you register, as you begin to think of your theme and gather scraps, words, art materials, found objects, etc. - all of which will support your story. All three of us will be available by email to answer questions, guide you through your art gathering, and help you develop your story.

Please contact Seth, Roxanne or me for how to sign up as it is rather complicated.
