I am thrilled to announce Nature’s Impressions, a four-day retreat focusing on bookmaking, eco dyeing, soldering and surface design with Leslie Marsh and Leighanna Light in beautiful, historic Taos, New Mexico. Join us as we design and create metal worked covers, and explore different techniques for making prints and textures on papers that will be folded and stitched into rich leather spine metal books.
Leighanna and Leslie will guide you through several treatments for both your covers and your papers. Each participant will leave the workshop with a quiver full of skills and TWO finished books. May is a spectacular time here in Taos NM! The air is still slightly cool and everything is fresh and blooming! New Mexico received its nickname, ‘The Land of Enchantment’, because of its natural beauty, rich history and vibrant culture. The people, their heritage and traditions, their skills and their arts, and the land, its awesome beauty, all make New Mexico the unique and colorful place that it is today.
We hope that you will join us for this creative learning experience, and enjoy the beauty and splendor of this beautiful land that we call Taos! We would love for you to join us for this week long art retreat for a rich, immersive, creative, week long experience.
