January 6th [Friday] / 6:00 - 9:00 p.m.
Guest Instructor: Seth Apter
Class fee: $65.00
Join me for a fiber fest and bring " a twist" to your mixed media artwork. In this 3-hour workshop, you will be wrapping objects with your choice of thread, fabric, yarn, chain, twine, wire, fiber, beads, embellishments, buttons, and more. Multiple approaches to wrapping will be introduced and participants will have the opportunity to make mixed media bundles, layer over premade objects, or build your own wire armature as a base. Techniques can be used to make stand-alone art objects or to create elements to be added to other mixed media work.
Student Supply List:
Fiber (threads, yarn, twine, sari silk ribbon, fabric remnants to cut or tear, etc.); and consider alternatives such as thin chain, artificial sinew, etc.
Embellishments (anything with a loop or hole -- charms, keys, beads, buttons, findings, etc.)
Objects to wrap: anything goes, including wood strips, metal strips, twigs, paint brushes, pencils, spoons, forks, found objects, etc. You can also bring larger objects if they have "branches" on which you can wrap.
Craft wire (approximately 24 gauge) in multiple colors and finishes
Rebar wire (only if interested in making your own wire armature)
Wire cutters (I will have several to share as well)
Work gloves (optional)
Needle nose pliers
Instructor will provide: Extra fibers, embellishments, 2 wire snips to share, and all basic supplies on the list to share (in case you are unable to find or bring something).
