Fiber and Book Arts, Mixed Media
Traci Bunkers, author of The Art Journal Workshop, Print & Stamp Lab, and Print It!, is a passionate mixed-media & fiber artist who loves rusty things, glitter glue, old books to cut up and cheap cameras. Since making her own books and art journaling have been a long time passion of hers, she always feels better after getting her art on by slapping some paint down and working in her journal. Through her one-woman business Bonkers Handmade Originals, she sells her nifty creations such as original artwork, hand-dyed spinning fibers and yarns, original rubber stamps, mixed-media supplies, handmade books, and kits. She has been teaching workshops across the US since the early 90s and has branched out into online workshops.

Do you love yarn but want to explore knitting forms beyond a pattern? Then this class is for you! You will learn how to let go of the knitting rules and make fun projects without a pattern using different yarns and unspun fibers to create beautiful organic looking items. They can be as funky and organic or as “reserved” as you like. We will explore the wonderful world of freeform knitting, modular knitting and mitered knitting using both yarn and unspun fibers.
