Collage in 3-D - Windows on the World In-Store Class 
Saturday, September 16, 1:00-4:30pm 
 Fran Meneley
Limit: 6 students. All participants must be 15 years or older.

Class Details:

These fascinating little slide boxes are filled with memories and imaginings, treasures and offerings. Created by local artist Fran Meneley, they’re miniature scenes fashioned from intimate moments of reflection. Fran likes to think of them as windows into other worlds. These little boxes are a great way to showcase found objects, bits of nature from your special somewhere, small keepsakes, or other whimsies. 

Class begins with a bit of history on three dimensional collage. Fran shows inspiring examples that have been made by others who enjoy this artform, and she shares suggestions on generating your own ideas. The rest of the class is for making your own little “windows on the world” from small paper slide boxes. Create something representational or abstract – wherever your imagination leads you! 

There are small items and ephemera from Fran’s collection for you to work with, but she encourages you to bring in personal items. Think about complimenting or contrasting what’s on the outside with what’s revealed when the box is opened. Whatever you decide, enjoy exploring this 3D variation on collage while making a little window on the world for yourself or someone close to your heart.

    Class Refund/Cancellation Policy

    Cancellations made up to 14 days prior to the first class meeting will be refunded or, at the participant's option, used to pay for another class. Two Hands Paperie will retain a $10 processing fee for EACH class cancelled by a participant. After 14 days, there is no refund or credit. In addition, the fee for a class cancelled within this 14-day timeframe by a participant cannot be transferred to pay for another class. These policies are to ensure that teachers are compensated for their investment in materials and in time spent preparing for the class. We reserve the right to cancel a class if fewer than 3 students enroll 48 hours prior to the scheduled class time. If for any reason Two Hands Paperie cancels a class, students will be called at the phone number on file and refunded the FULL class fee.

    Instructor Bio

    I am an explorer, journaler, painter, maker, teacher and workshop facilitator (Taos Studio Retreat, Taos, NM). I have been journaling, writing, collaging and painting in my studio and on the road for 23 years. I love to cook and eat (not in that order), travel and explore (always, anywhere), garden, museum hop, teach art (big and small humans) at Two Hands Paperie, and in my home studio. I scavenge and collect (think corvid librarian), am inspired by the intricacies and divine beauty of nature and am a lifelong learner and experimenter. I live in Boulder, Colorado with my husband – my grown, adventurous children visit often. In a former life I was Associate Publisher of a nationally circulated environmental magazine called Buzzworm. You can find my work on my website and in these publications:  1000 Artist Journal Pages by Dawn DeVries Sokol, Beaded Embellishment by Amy Clarke, 500 Beaded Objects by  Lark Books, and in issues of Studios Magazine, Beadwork Magazine and Cloth, Paper, Scissors Magazine and in The Brooklyn Art Library’s Sketchbook Project.
