This is Who You've Missed So Far this Year
This fun and innovative workshop incorporates a multi-media 3D approach to sculptural bookmaking using fiber, paper, and encaustic.
Miles Conrad brings ten years of teaching experience, more than two decades of pioneering encaustic practice, and eleven years of curatorial expertise.
His proven method uses simple, step-by-step instruction to create professional-caliber projects drawing upon each artist's unique concepts and vision.
Working with Tea and Rust, is gorgeous, fast, easy, natural, surprising and unpredictable - all elements of the perfect muse!
Mark Making and Burning to create repetitive patterns. What could be more enchanting? Learn new stencil techniques with tea and rust. Our explorations will include, but are not limited to:
You will complete a sample book with all your experiments for future reference.
Reliquary: a container or shrine where relics and other precious objects are kept.
In this expansive workshop, we will begin the first day with an illustrated talk on the history of reliquaries from ancient times to today. Gathering inspiration from these ancient artifacts, we will incorporate found objects, text, plaster, paint, wax, glass, wire, and thread as we make our own reliquaries/shrines/altars using shadow boxes. Real and/or imagined personal histories will be explored through narrative imagery.
This will be a lively fun-filled workshop. Each day will begin with exciting, informative demonstrations followed by time to create. A wide variety of techniques will be shared, including: mixed media collage, image transfer techniques, cold wax medium, shadow box construction, glass etching and engraving, and found-object collage.
Bring with you a sense of adventure and a willingness to explore!
