Preregistration is required to attend all classes and workshops at Arlene’s. Space is limited so please register soon. Click the link to register online. Otherwise, please come into the store, at 57 Fuller Rd Albany NY, or call us, (518) 482-8881, to reserve your space.

Learn the art of colored encaustic painting, combined with making a handmade book, in this two part class!  The first week, students will create two encaustic panel book covers using collage techniques of working in wax.  We will cover techniques of application, as well as address the do’s and don’ts of the medium. In the second week, we will prepare papers/pages to bind into the covers with a traditional Coptic Stitch, a method of binding using a single thread to attach the covers to the pages. Students will develop skills for creating a multiple signature book, using end papers, cover boards, decorative signature paper sections and exposed, knotted spine stitching.  Using skills of dexterity, stitching, organizing and just a little math, each student will make a wonderfully creative, keepsake sketchbook, in addition to a one of a kind functional piece of art. A supply list will be provided upon registration and supplies are not included in the cost of the workshop.

Please note that our classes are typically held in the lower level of Arlene's. Because access to the lower level is available only by stair, please let us know if using the stairs presents any difficulty for you in advance of the class so we can make alternate arrangements. We want to make sure everyone is able to enjoy and participate in our classes.
