Sculptural Textile Workshop at Grounds for Sculpture- $175 Members / $215
In this two week Saturday workshop create free-standing sculptural forms, vessels, and relief pieces using fibers and heat tools. Recycled materials and man-made fibers are cut, shaped, and built-up with heat guns, irons and soldering irons, layering texture, color, and distressed surfaces. Build structure with Tyvek and bondable webs, create texture with foils, synthetic organza and more, add rich color with disburse dyes, and transfer paints, creating layered paintings, vessels and free-standing forms. Dive into working both large and small. Students will end their session with knowledge of hot textile tools and materials, and samples to inform future work, as well as several three-dimensional works. Beginner and up. Instructor: Lian Sawires.
