Shadow boxes become poetic theater or settings wherein are metamorphosed the elements of a childhood pastime. The fragile, shimmering globules become the shimmering but more enduring planets—a connotation of moon and tides—the association of water less subtle, as when driftwood pieces make up a proscenium to set off the dazzling white of sea foam and billowy cloud crystallized in a pipe of fancy.

Come explore the magic world of Shadowbox Assemblage. 

In this workshop we will create a dreamscape in a small container, using paper, paint and small found objects we will experiment with visual non linear story telling, simple construction techniques and design strategy.


Each student will receive a box, and access to papers, and different small objects, and tools and supplies to create a unique piece of art, designed to evoke memories, dreams and emotions in the viewer.


  • This workshop will be held indoors in a spacious room, but please be healthy to attend. Refunds for illness will be offered.


  • Lunch will be served as part of the workshop. Please message me any dietary restrictions.


  • Feel free to bring small personal item to be included in the assemblage, materials will be provided included in the class fee, and possible some extra items for sale.
