Workshops at Hunter Moon Homestead are all-inclusive. Tuition price includes lodging, meals and instruction. Continue below for details:


Join Kristin Peterson for an intimate, creative weekend in Idaho. In this immersive art experience, we will be creating a storied art journal using elementary binding principles that will create a quaint fragile-ness to our book. We will gather found prairie florals and explore cyanotype dying on fabric. We will distress our favorite fabrics to give them a forever- loved look and feel. We will mindfully create pages with hand sewn details and art marks of our own. All while being attentive to our overall book composition.

So bring your curiosity and sense of wonderment!

This class is suitable for all experience levels; you can have zero art experience and give yourself permission to play! You'll be amazed at what you can create. Together, we will create and tell our stories as makers.

THE ARTIST
Kristin Peterson Bio Pic

Kristin Peterson

instagram @alteredstatesstudio

Kristin Peterson is a third generation artist, originally from South Dakota. Kristin’s creative passion is inspired and supported by her husband and kids, all who encourage, critique, and promote her work.

Kristin is always exploring and expanding the creative depths of being an artist. She very much enjoys vintage collage work and mixed media. Kristin loves color and things that have a love-worn comfortable feeling-like an old favorite pair of jeans-coffee stained, patched, painted and well loved. She wants her art to project feeling and make people feel good while looking at it. Her style contains vibrance mixed with a little funk, which is sprinkled with discreet sensibility.

Regular price $1,500.00 Sale price$1,200.00

The Bee House Studio was originally built as a grain barn around 1915. This barn housed food stores for working animals on this original turn of the century homestead, but is now our working artist's studio and retreat house!

We have restored the barn to include a beautiful kitchen, full bathroom, class room, a master bedroom suite, and a cozy bunk and lounging room.

All classes and breakfast service will be offered in the Bee House.
