UPCOMING WORKSHOP VENUES AND COURSES

It’s my turn to dig into some new ways of working! I will be pursuing my Master of Fine Arts Degree in Sculpture at the Nova Scotia College of Art & Design in Halifax, Canada for the next two years. STRONGFELT workshop offerings will be greatly reduced from the fall of 2018 through the spring of 2020 to accommodate my studies. However, in the summer of 2020:

Oberrot, Germany at Wollknoll
June 8-12, 2020, Depth of Surface & Depth of Field
This course combines techniques from my surface design courses:

Participants explore how to create depth through color combinations, the application of different densities of partially felted sheets for patterning, texture resist and edging, the variables of incorporating a wide variety of fabrics for surface texture including entrapping objects under fabrics and between, in fabric pockets. Free-motion embroidery will be applied to gather and compress the remaining airspace in the felt and offer finer detailing. The courses’ goals are to investigate various methods and concepts so that each participant enriches their visual language and to encourage the application of such time consuming processes and dense surface detailing as a focal point in a larger field of felt: a jacket cuff, a shirt collar, a trim line, the flap of a handbag, a component of a necklace, an aspect of a wall hanging or sculptural form…
