Hands-On seminar -- Gathering Thoughts with Mark Making
Led by ReBecca Paterson
Followed by Linda Mackie Finley's Binding Thoughts.
We will explore mark making through a series of fast-paced exercises, then discuss how to use or further develop our marks. With Linda’s guidance we will produce a portfolio from our marked papers, so we can continue working on the marks throughout and after the retreat.
