This workshop is quite extensive, over three hours of video guidance. The destination is about creating a personal object of devotion. The journey is a diverse one filled with many lessons. Along the way, you will learn how to create

  • collage papers
  • ribbon braids
  • terra cotta bird beads
  • clay faces
  • silver milagros
  • layered substrates and wooden bodies
  • and much more . . ..

You will grace each step with your personal choices and preferences. And you will curate and build a beautiful entity that has never existed before, a Neo Santo that will enhance your daily life.


Hi, I’m Lyn!

Hi, I'm LYN BELISLE (say "buh-LYLE"), artist, teacher, author, and perpetual work-in-progress. My hometown is beautiful multi-cultural San Antonio, Texas, where I practice art, design instructional eBooks, run a popular Etsy shop called Earthshards, and teach workshops.


I work in four main media to explore my ideas:    

    In collage with encaustic and altered papers, celebrating anonymous faces and otherworldly places

    In earthenware clay with found objects, creating spiritual and symbolic “neo-santo” assemblage

    In fiber, with natural colors, wax, felt, tattered and dyed cheesecloth and digital photo images

    In acrylic abstraction, with intuitive, non-referenced explorations of form and veiling

I'm so glad you're joining me for the Neo Santo workshop. It is filled with ideas and inspiration. It's a journey of exploration and discovery. You can do this for yourself to bring joy to your creative life!
