Record your drawn and painted impressions or words to the wise in your own handmade books! Using watercolor and multi-media papers, you’ll spend three days learning different binding techniques and creating small stitched travel journals that will fit inside your pockets, as well as refillable watercolor sketchbooks, with a variety of sizes and covers. So many books, so many ideas . . .
Chad Hagen’s two big loves are bookmaking and textiles. Combining them began an exploration into making books with covers that feature resist-dyed, hand felted and woven wool fabrics. Her felt work has been seen in Surface Design Journal, Shuttle, Spindle & Dyepot, and Fiberarts magazines. Author of 3 books, Weekend Crafter: Feltmaking, Fabulous Felt Hats, and Fabulous Felted Scarves (with Jorie Johnson), Chad is writing one about resist-dyeing on wool. With BA and MS degrees from UW-Madison and MFA from Cranbrook Academy of Art, Chad has taught workshops for over 40 years across the U.S., Europe, Australia, New Zealand and at her studio in Asheville, NC. www.chadalicehagen.com
