in person Workshops


UPDATE: Renovations continue in my abode, which prohibits any sort of classes taking place at the nest. Spring will bring about a much different schedule (I hope) but until then, I will try to keep you inspired with posts and tutorials.  I am even venturing out into some video taping….not sure I’m doing such a hot job right now, but hey we all have to start somewhere!  

If you are in S.E. Michigan, I am always willing to come to you. 

Gather some friends (6 to 10 is ideal!) and host a bookmaking party, or explore the joys of gelliprinting, intuitive painting and collage!  For more information, call me (lisa) at 586-242-6131, or email me at

BOOKMAKING: Coptic stitch binding, Handmade Japanese bookpaper and bindings, Junk journals, Handpainted refillable books, Gellipaper inspire journals

GELLIPRINTING: Nature printed fabric from a gelli plate, Gelli outside the box- printing on unusual substrates, Abstract portraits and landscapes from a gelatin plate, Artstart books and travel journals

MIXEDMEDIA: Intuitive Mandalas, Painting your Soul, Paint Collage & Fabric – oh my!, Painted Canvas bags, The color of you- finding your creative self, Travel Journal Mayhem, Lifeline collage

If you would like descriptions for any of these classes, you can email me at Or call me if you would like to discuss your own ideas for a party: 586-242-6131

*Times and costs for the classes will vary depending on several factors including the number of attending artists, supplies needed for your choice of class, abilities of the creative seekers, and how in-depth you would live to delve. We can discuss that! I will work with you to tailor your gathering to your groups needs.

I look forward to creating with you all 🙂

Have a blessed day and a creative week! ~lisa
