Laurie Beth Zuckerman will lead a second two-day weekend workshop at the mosaic studio of Susan Wechsler in Boulder, Colorado, June 8-9, 2013. This is a special opportunity to work with two internationally-recognized found-object assemblage artists. I will guide each participant in creating their own personal MEMORY JUG RELIQUARY, inspired by this enigmatic Victorian-era American folk art of Memory Jugs and Memoryware.
Susan Wechsler will assist me in this memory jug workshop. She was an awesome student in my last workshop that I held at her studio on February 16-17. What a great group and so talented. We all agreed it was a wonderful experience. Everyone worked so diligently and their memory jugs were fascinating with all the detail in their collections of memorabilia.
Pictured below is one of Susan's Memory Dresses. I am enthralled by the textures and colors we were able to create in her dress. Her 20-year background in art and mosaics made this challenging process proceed smoothly throughout the weekend. Susan is a natural.

using several of Laurie's memory jug techniques for the first time.
