Sept 30 - Oct 2. Come explore the ever expanding vocabulary of the mixed media woven vessel while combining sculptural concepts of layering, with encaustic medium applied to fiber. This highly focused, process driven workshop will begin with weaving a simple boat form, layering with paper or fabric, then infusing those fibers with coats of encaustic medium. This gives a warm luminance effect to your vessel and allows marking, exploring oil stick inlay, and embedding surface materials such as found objects, beads, and items collected in nature.

During class we will take a short walk around the workshop grounds and collect a few interesting items to be added to the options being offered. We will also engage the perspective of how materials can change with a few playful tweaks and see them in a new light to be added to your designs. Join me while learning new skills or building on new insights to add to your own skills. All methods learned can be applied in future dialog to one's own personal designs. Innovate!
