Compendium: /kəmˈpendēəm/ a collection of things, commonly found in books and writings. Join mixed media artists Tina Walker & DeeDee Catron for a 3-day weekend filled with making, building, and constructing handmade artist books, from a variety of traditional and non-traditional materials.  You’ll work pages, structures, bindings, closures & more, leaving the retreat with four (4) books tucked neatly into a hand-built bookcase. We’ll explore the concept of an artist book, explore our definitions of the same and why these are so much more than an art journal. We invite you to share in the discovery of why book making makes our creative hearts full.

Registration fee includes some shareable supplies, drinks & snacks, and THREE DAYS OF AWESOMENESS.

Each artist will have a small supplies fee of $20 each.
