Kristin Peterson
Pilfered Tomes – Mixed Media

Sep 15 - Sep 19

3 Teaching Days


Returning for the 2nd year in 2022

Join Kristin Peterson on a storytelling book-binding journey. In this three day class, we will be binding with elementary principles for our vintage and found pieces using fabric and waxed threads. Pages will be pieced together like patchwork quilts with our own sense of style while being mindful of overall book composition.

Let’s explore homemade stamps and our own art marks. And fill pages with image transfers and typed words. We will show our pages love by adding slow stitching and little pieces of everyday magic.

So bring along your curiosity and sense of wonderment to bind your own found story.

This class is suitable for all experience levels, as we will visit about what it means to be creative and will walking on the side of permission. Together, we will create and tell stories as makers.



Kristin Peterson is a third generation artist, originally from South Dakota. Kristin’s creative passion is inspired and supported by her husband and kids. Kristin is always exploring and expanding the creative depths of mixed media and book making. She very much enjoys vintage collage work. Kristin loves color and things that have a love-worn comfortable feeling-like an old favorite pair of jeans-coffee stained, patched, painted and well loved. She wants her art to project feeling and make people feel good while looking at it. Her paintings contain vibrance mixed with a little funk, which is sprinkled with discreet sensibility. Her style is meant to make you ponder and smile, just as she does as she paints and creates.

2022 COVID Precautions

For the 2022 season, but all artists should be prepared to abide by the following measures while attending workshops, with the understanding that protocols may change.

  1. Participants must fill out a quick health questionnaire to make sure they do not exhibit any symptoms.
  2. Masks are required to be worn while in classrooms and shared spaces.
  3. Participants must also wash hands or use hand sanitizer at the beginning of each class and often during class sessions.
  4. Participants are required to stay 6 feet apart for social distancing protocols.

A floor plan per each of our three studios has been created to ensure that the artist tables and lecture area will allow people to socially distance themselves a minimum of 3 feet.  In lieu of crowding around the artist during demos, a desktop camera system and large format digital TV screens have been installed in each of the studios to allow students a close up view of demos.
