Luthien Thye presents, Beyond Time, a timeless workshop where you be making a mixed media miniature art book which includes the use of many different medias. The art book will take the form of a “romantic relic” with burned pages and aged covers, and finishing with an engagement ring nestled inside of the book.
She will also show you how to paint a heart, if you so wish to use it as an option to the ring. Besides that, you will be trying out your hand on coffee stained pages for the book, but with a little twist; accent pages will be introduced among those stained pages to give your art book a surprise feature.
Luthien will be showing you 2 ways to make the Accent pages … an easy way, which is part of our original concept, and a more complicated way as an option.
In this workshop Luthien will also teach you how to condition, cut, imprint polymer clay, stain papers and fibers, sew a book onto a leather spine, make wire clasps, age metal and create a beautiful aged finish with the use of paint and other techniques.
With the completion of this creative and in-depth workshop, it is Luthien’s hope to have shared with you a variety of techniques that are simple enough to apply into your future creations. These techniques would not need any sort of expensive professional tools because Luthien will help you to try to improvise on the tools as much as possible.
Get ready for a fun and in depth adventure!

Like many who discovered art at a later age in their lives, I have never been to art school nor had any formal training in art. In fact, my early education couldn’t be farther away from anything that resembled “artistic” or “creative”, unless you consider “creative book-keeping” an art form! After graduating in Accounting & Economics, I returned home to Malaysia where I so much as worked 6 hours in my dad’s company and ended up totally convinced that the 9-5 managerial job was not my cup of tea. And so I pursued my first love … the Stage.
After many years on the stage dancing, singing and making a fool of myself whilst earning decent money, I did what my heart wanted me to do next … fall in love and start a family. And although the stage will always have a special place in my heart, I am now a mother to 2 of the most amazing little girls and a wife to the most steadfast, loving and encouraging man.
So here it is … my story … my little journey prior to how I finally fell into the world of making things with my hands. What I make reflects my experiences in life, my emotions, my feelings about certain things, my stories and of course, the many worlds that reside in my imagination. So when I say “I make art” … it just means that I am manifesting bits and pieces of me in a more tangible form. ~ Luthien Thye
