Donna Downey Returns




an in-depth workshop

taught by


JANUARY 24 & 25

How many times have you wanted to travel to an artist's studio to take a fabulous 2 day in depth class but had to pass because of the travel expenses?  Here is your chance to take an in depth workshop from one of the mixed-media masters without that burden.  Donna Downey is taking her "metamorphosis" Artbooking class on the road and we are one of the first stores to take advantage of this amazing opportunity.  You will be able to learn many exciting mixed-media techniques while creating this amazing fabric book.


mixed-­‐media fabric ARTbooking workshop

As the title suggests, this workshop is about transformation, the literal transformation of the medias and surfaces as we work in layers, but also the adaptations you as the Artist will bring and incorporate into your own pieces.

Using muslin fabric as your substrate, you will begin building structural layers by adding thin layers of joint compound and wet mediums giving your pages a textural, sculpted feel. In class I will work along with you modeling the processes and demonstrating how bendability and color can play into your overall designs. We will discuss “mark making” and use this skill as a means to incorporate each Artist’s own signature into their work and build upon that style by identifying the theme of your ARTbook using image transfers
By further understanding glazes and finishes your books transformation from fabric to ART will emerge, and lastly we will finish by binding your completed ARTbooking piece.

This is an "all-inclusive" event.  All supplies will be provided including a light lunch both days for the price of $425. This workshop will be limited to 20 students.  

ENROLLMENT IS NOW OPEN.  Enrollment must be made by email (maura@myheartsfancyok.com)  and will be on a first come first served basis.  If the class fills before you can enroll, I will add you to the wait list in the same first come first served basis.  I will confirm your enrollment within 1 business day (Sundays & Mondays excluded).  Class Fee &  Cancellation policy can be found below.

"Metamorphosis"  is one of Donna's newest classes.  She brings her working knowledge of materials and love of mixed-media to the table so you can experience the fun and excitement of mixed-media in all it's fullness.
I am excited to offer this new workshop concept to you.  Whether you are one of my local friends or one of my not-so-distant out-of town friends, this is an incredible opportunity.  Join Donna and me for this memorable journey in mixed-media.
