there are still spaces available for these workshops i'm teaching in june...

Workshop: Markmaking and Encaustic
June 1-5
Jackson Hole Workshops/Art Association
240 South Glenwood Street
Jackson, WY

This workshop involves the exploration of encaustic, one of the most exciting and versatile mediums available to the contemporary artist. With an emphasis on mixed-media, the basics are covered as well as a variety of advanced techniques. In addition to encaustic, participants will also explore the mark-making possibilities of branding, rust printing and composting and are encouraged to respond to these marks utilizing encaustic as well as other media. Participants are encouraged to develop a personal vocabulary by applying these new techniques to their current ideas and methodologies.

Workshop: Alternative Embellishment
June 22-26
The Society for Contemporary Craft
2100 Smallman Street
Pittsburgh, PA

This workshop focuses on the stitch as both mark and structure to alter, enrich and transform the surface of pliable materials. While exploring traditional surface applications such as machine and hand embroidery, unconventional materials such as Tyvek, polyester, found and recycled items will be combined with processes such as crayon and image transfer, collage, flocking and foiling, layering and heating to create complex and sculptural surfaces. Participants are encouraged to develop a personal vocabulary through the creation of a portfolio of samples which may be worked into a quilt, a book or exist as small-scale art pieces suitable for framing or further embellishment.
