EK Original “Rustic Mica Journal”

August 24 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm


Learn about the mineral Mica while constructing this awesome journal!

Have you ever wanted to learn about the mineral Mica? It is amazing all of the different techniques that can be learned with this amazing material. This is a Journal that we will be constructing using the mineral Mica.  In the workshop the students will be learning several different techniques in using Mica with paper arts.  A few cold connections will also be taught. When finished, students will leave with a beautiful Mica Journal measuring 5” x 5”. Plus, students will have the knowledge of using Mica in their future creations.

Students should bring favorite pictures or old tin types measuring no larger than 3”x 3” to put in the journal (I will have some also).

Ages 15 and up.  No experience required. Tea service from the Teafinery at BrainVessel provided and complimentary dessert by Renee Napoli.

**Brain Vessel and/or the instructing artist reserves the right to cancel the class if the minimum student requirement is not met by two days before the class date.  Refund or rain check for next class will be given.**
