The magic in this world seems to work in whispers and small kindnesses...

Follow the whispers...

In this soulful little workshop, we will be tuning in to the whispers of our soul, as we create a beautiful artist book with paper, fiber, plaster and encaustic wax...

We will use cut-out words in a very intuitive and playful process, like tiny paper oracles, and allow them to come together with imagery, serendipitously and poetically.

This yummy project is packed with some of my favorite techniques and each page becomes a little artwork in itself. The process is so versatile that you will be able to create book after book in your own style, to tell YOUR own story.

Page after page, your soul knows the way

 
I’ve made five little books now, each one so very special with its own poignant story to tell. This is the most soul searching fun I’ve ever had in an online class. Add to that Laly leads you gently, sweetly through every step with beautiful videos. I think it may be time to make another…

Whispered words

Every page in this book explores what I love, how I feel about myself and my art, and is my expression of all of that goodness. It was simply a doing of great joy, and I am in awe of the beauty created. I’ve made five little books now, each one so very special with its own poignant story to tell.

Thank you, Laly, for this truly lovely class. It came at the perfect time for me, giving me a place to retreat and find some peace and beauty. I’ve just spent the most delightful time today gathering my bundles. This class was a gift from me to me and I can already tell it’s working its magic. I’m looking forward to the next step and the comforting fragrance of encaustic.

“I am so grateful for this way of working slowly with whatever arises and following it wherever it goes… This is so much like the stories my grandmother told us…”
— Olivia Rose Lee
I had delirious fun tearing, glueing, creating and making this book!
— Mary Zans Warren
The whispering words of love, beauty, gentleness, softness, delicate, blooming keep popping into my head from my heart as I share my little book of “Inner Living”! Felted chiffon, embroidered silk, eco dyed silk, printed linen, beaded chiffon and vintage satin are some of the textural fabrics I love to work with! Thank you Laly for sharing part of yourself with us with your techniques and style. I love the binding technique! I have enjoyed this little journey of whispering wisdom and plan on creating more!
— Suzy Quaife
I finally have my book done. When I started the process, it moved me to tears. I enjoyed this so much. I got a little “page happy.” Laly, thank you so much for this class! Creating beauty allows our souls to speak.
— Holly Lewis
Oh this is powerful work!
Laly, I have watched your video on working with words a couple of times now because it resonated with me so much that my heart skipped a beat and tears swelled. After a nice cup of tea, and a small moment to process, I jumped in... look what emerged. Love, love, love and so from my soul. Thank you with much gratitude for providing the seed for more searching within.
— Kylie Heidrich
I can’t believe I made yet another book. You have created a book maniac Laly!
