I am going on friday and saturday and will mostly be in the Make it University area making art with my friends. I will be doing Open Studios on friday 2:30 – 4:30 and again on Saturday 12:30 – 2:30.
On Saturday at 3:00, I will be leading an MIU workshop making an embossed metal cover pop up origami book.
Using aluminum craft metal, simple embossing, alcohol inks and paper we will create a fun little art book, using the fundamentals of origami to create expanding pop up pages. These are so cool, easy to make and they make awesome little gifts.
Kelli Nina Perkins will also be in Make it U, doing open studios and she has two workshops.
Whimsical Cartoon Pins, friday at 10:30 am. Don’t these make you smile?
Vintage Poetry Spools, Saturday at 1:30 pm
Kelli will also be doing book signings for her wonderful book Stitch Alchemy.
