Friday March 10th, Saturday March 11th, Sunday March 12th and Monday March 13th - 2023
10am to 5pm each day
The cost of the in-person workshop is $1275 and includes TONS of very expensive supplies. You'll be able to make a significant amount of work and come away with a working knowledge of not only these materials and how to use them but how they attach, interact, work and layer together in numerous ways. Additionally, we'll go over ways to hang the work in various ways to attach to the wall, hang from the ceiling and we'll invent interesting "bases" for floor pieces. See some of the images below from my installation "Behind The Seen" and "Appearances" along with individual works and studio shots to get an idea of just some of the numerous ways materials can be manipulated and installed. You'll have an opportunity to brainstorm and work out ways to approach 3D work in your own way - super fun - we'll go over everything!!
Some of the materials we'll be working with are Tyvek, Fosshape, Wonderflex, Dura-Lar, wire, ink, plaster, acrylic, wood, metal, Vinyl, 2 types of foam, rawhide and more! This workshop includes a talk and slide show of artists working today with various materials and installations in exciting ways. We will look at the "why" and various concepts behind the work where applicable
I will meet with each of you via zoom before the workshop to flush out ideas and prepare
