Mid-MO Fall Arts & Crafts Gathering Update

As promised, here is a list of supplies suggested for the upcoming gathering. Please note, you are not required to bring anything except something for the pot-luck lunch. However, as with most learning experiences, we feel the workshops will be much richer if you jump in and learn ‘hands-on’. As we won’t be providing materials for everyone (cost prohibits) we ask that if you wish to participate ‘hands-on’ style, please bring what you’ll need. If you simply want to watch and learn, we simply suggest bringing a notebook to jot down ideas.

Here’s the most current list of workshops and their materials lists.

Book Binding
Scrapbooking paper (8.5” x 11” or 12” x 12”, three to four sheets)
-for book covers
Cardstock paper (8.5” x 11” or 12” x 12”, three to four sheets)
-for book covers
Heavyweight construction paper, white (I buy the big 12” x 18”)
-for pages
Acid free glue (I strongly suggest Aleene’s Tacky Glue)

Aging Paper
-nothing fancy: 1” to 2”
-cheap hardware store brushes work fine
Several small (1 cup or so) containers
-to protect tables
Something to age
-feel free to bring something to work on
-a photocopy of anything will work well

Carving Workshop
Carving material
-Fox-Fyr is making a run to Dick-Blick if anyone wants to put in an order for their
gray carving material
Carving tools
-a handle, No. 1 ‘V’, No. 4 ‘U’ and an X-acto knife is plenty
An idea

Codes and Ciphers
Full sized notebook
Blank white paper

General items
Please lable all your tools.
Cutting mat
Cutting knife

Potluck Items
Please bring your own plates, utensils, cups and serving items needed to serve up your delicious dishes.

Of course don’t forget to bring your logbook and personal stamp as browsing through well worn logs is always a fun way to gain insight into those mysterious trail names. Also feel free any itmes you wish to show-and-tell. We all love seeing artifacts and momentos related to Letterboxing.

Please feel free to send any questions my way.

One item I forgot to add, plus an additional comment regrading the materials.

If you intend on making a hardbound book in the book making workshop, please bring a piece of cloth roughly 1 foot square that cooresponds with the card stock and scrapbooking papers you'll be brinnging.

In regards to the card stock and scrapbooking paper, we'll be using them to make a small simple book, like those found in my FB series, as well as the hardbound book above. So, try to bring something that goes well together.

Are the classes going to be running at the same time, or back to back? I'm wondering if I'll have to choose - I sure hope not!

We'll be running two workshops simultaneously, then flip the groups. This way we'll have two smaller groups but no one will miss anything.

I can't wait to see the groups flip. ;)
