Have you always wanted to experiment with mixed media but didn’t know where to start? In this exciting workshop, we’ll explore multiple ways to create materials to use in your projects. First, we’ll play with photo transfers: a great way to add images to altered books, collage, and fiber crafts. You’ll learn several simple techniques to transfer images from photocopies and magazines to paper and cloth. Next, we’ll explore ways to turn ordinary paper into extraordinary paper. Did you know that you can create marbled paper from old National Geographics? We’ll show you how to do it, and we’ll “age” papers and fabric using household items, such as tea and coffee. We'll supply some images for you, or you can bring your own. The best results will be achieved with small (no larger than 4x6), high-contrast images. This workshop can be taken as a stand-alone class, or it makes a great precursor to Purple Crayon's Altered Board Books workshop on May 6, 2018!

Mother's Day is just around the corner! In this fun, hands-on workshop, you'll turn a children’s board book into a unique family memento for your mom, someone else you love, or just yourself! We’ll start by discussing how to select adhesives and other supplies for your board book. Next, you’ll learn how to prepare your board book and embellish it. Then, the fun really begins! You’ll spend the rest of the workshop adding papers, transfers, fabric, stitching, mica, objects, images, and text to your masterpiece. Finally, we’ll cover ways to complete your book and seal the pages to protect them. This workshop may be taken as a stand-alone class, or it makes a great follow-up to Purple Crayon's Photo Transfer and Altered Paper Techniques workshop on April 29, 2018.

Music Matters is a series of appreciation lectures given by Asheville FM DJs, volunteers, and affiliates. Topics will vary according to the unique passions of the presenters but will likely focus on the historical, theoretical, or cultural aspects of various genres, artists, bands, labels, and even musical instruments. Every presentation is free to the public, with a suggested donation of $5-$50. Those who donate $50 will automatically become AFM members. Join us on Tuesday, May 8, from 6–8 pm, for "Reinventing Pink Floyd: From Syd Barrett to the Dark Side of the Moon,” presented by Asheville author Bill Kopp. This event will take place at the Revolve Studio in RAMP SOUTH Studios, #179, 821 Riverside Drive. When founding member Syd Barrett left Pink Floyd in early 1968, there was good reason to think that the band was over. Five years later, the band would release one of the most popular albums in the history of the recording medium. The Dark Side of the Moon didn't create itself out of nothing. The seeds for most every enduring quality found in the Pink Floyd experience – the lyrics, the musical textures, the overall presentation – all developed across the six albums, related tours and other projects that the band worked on in the years between The Piper at the Gates of Dawn and Dark Side. Drawing upon rare, unreleased audio plus analysis and discussion, Reinventing Pink Floyd author Bill Kopp will show how the band navigated the journey from being at loose ends to creating a monumental work.

You don't need to be a watercolor artist to create beautiful watercolor greeting cards! All you need are good quality cards, gel pens, colored or watercolor pencils, and some basic coloring skills. If you're looking for something fun to do with Mom this Mother's Day weekend—or you just need a little break yourself—consider taking this interesting and relaxing workshop. Coloring book artist, Carla Parvin, will start by reviewing basic coloring tools and techniques for using gel pens, colored pencils, and watercolor pencils, including a way to capture your color combinations. She will then show you how to blend gel pens and mix colored pencils and gel pens to achieve a watercolor effect. You will spend the rest of the workshop playing with your new skills! You will work on (2) 4.25” x 5.5” Color Anywhere cards in class and will leave with (2) 5” x 7” note cards with envelopes and a set of gel pens that you can play with after you leave. A limited number of colored pencils, watercolor pencils, and paint brushes will be provided, but participants are encouraged to bring their own if they have them.
