Textile Sculpting Workshop

Welcome to Veronika Olivier’s course introducing textiles and fibers in sculpting. Veronika is a South African living in a small town south of Johannesburg in a hundred-year-old house. She has been an artist all her life and only started to practice it full-time for the last 4 years. Veronika’s inspiration comes from visual experiences, memories and imagination. As an avid recycler, she uses things from around the home, including plastics, old clothes, boxes, tea bags, etc. Veronika sources materials from second-hand and charity shops, textile waste from designers and gathers anything she can get her hands on.

The aim of the course is to introduce you to new ways of sculpting appropriate for textiles and fibers through observation and using a range of media, techniques and approaches. Through this creative process, you will be encouraged to experiment and develop your own ideas to inspire future textile works. You will also start to see your work in a broader context by looking at contemporary artists who approach textiles in different ways.

The course aims to:
– Introduce you to new ways of developing visual work appropriate for textiles.
– Use a range of media, techniques and approaches in your work.
– Encourage you to experiment and develop your own visual vocabulary.

Through the course, you will:
– Acquire new ways of working creatively.
– Develop new observational skills.
– Explore some textile manipulation techniques.
– Gain greater confidence in your potential for textile-related work.

DNA of a Matchbook

In this workshop, Kristin Peterson will walk each student through creating a story-telling matchbook with layers of imagery, papers, and found words. This workshop is for all levels. From the very beginners to professional artists who may just need to loosen up a bit.

We will have an easy, yet meaningful talk about color and composition and I will show you how to leave evidence of yourself behind in these matchbooks in a highly personal way. We will stitch, glue and tape our way through our creations!

I will give insight on where to source and find papers, how I like to make my own papers, and as a bonus, there are lessons on making your own stamps and image transfers. And did I mention a few amazing downloads from my own stash?

There are 26 detailed, instructional videos with over 4 hours of content. Come join me!

Pocket.doc

Rae Missigman & Sandi Keene present their biggest, most involved project ever created. This is the one that almost broke them. It’s that big! This greatly anticipated class meets the needs of the modern storyteller, art creative, and record keeper. Sandi & Rae redesigned the method for documenting and expressing our narrative.

Twenty step-by-step videos with 200+ minutes of demos, instruction, tips & hacks, shopping tours, and assembling the best portable workstation you have ever seen. Just as we do in our best-selling class, Pocket Journals, we will build your Pocket.doc from scratch.

Downloads, checklists, art elements -oh my! We have created a 25-page e-book housing a crazy amount of downloads, PDFs and At A Glance check-lists to give you all the choices.
