Keeper of Memories
We are going to look for that shoe box in our house where we store our fotos and precious items from beloved ones and create a unique and original scrapbook. One that will have a full display in our home.
Lost + Found Treasures
In this course we will create an unique book that will embody the particular moments in our lives that we never forget and that we deeply value.
free + instant access
So we are going to create from scratch with personal fotos, fabrics, stiching and ephemera something very special, something that you will be proud to offer or show to family and friends.
The Giving Spoon
free + instant access
As creatives one of our simple pleasures in life is to offer handmade gifts. It’s one of many ways we choose to demonstrate our love. A gift from the heart course is about honoring, showing how we value beloved ones.
What people are saying
Some gathered voices on taking one of Alex's courses or workshops!
I’m so delighted and inspired by your lessons and techniques. Love this class and the big concept of LOST + FOUND TREASURES. You are a most excellent teacher.
I have learned so much with this course (and will never look at a rusty item quite the same) A big thank you to you Alex for stretching my imagination and teach me the art of mixed media. I have thoroughly enjoyed it.
I’m not new with Art Journals and know a lot of technics but your course is really an enrichment to me and for my work. New for me is the resin paper and dying with black beans. Your course is awesome. Also the assemblage ideas are so great.Thanks Alex so much for this wonderful and generous course for us.
My four treasures in honor of my beloved ones. Alex’s workshop opened up a whole new world for me and gave me a chance to deal with my grief. THANK YOU dear Alex. From the bottom of my heart.
I think your workshop is amazing. Your theme of using memorabilia from our family members is brilliant.
This is the first project that had me completely focused on the process. I get to escape. What I love about it is the richness and meaning behind the content.I’m completely absorbed in the organic feel of the materials. LOVE IT! I’ll be looking forward to your next class.
The Keeper of Memories book with the most inspiring teacher Alex Castro Ferreira continues with more images of my ancestors. And what a journey it is! This one includes a small tribute to Alex as a way of showing acknowledgment and appreciation for this amazing journey. We have all enjoyed and have been somewhat affect by the emotions it has stirred. Thank you so much Alex
This has been a journey for sure, I cried watching your course videos as I knew I would take the journey too. So many moments we’re stuck in time for me with someone else’s thoughts attached. I pulled the photos I have left all out and dusted them off and worked through it. This course is such a gift of healing.
