I am pretty excited about this workshop. We will be creating a wall hanging out of plaster.
Every component is of the Earth; gypsum, paper, rust, metal, cotton, etc.
I had been playing around with the concept of manipulating plaster wrap in a 3-D effect. Below is a medallion that was formed inside a rusted medal finding. It's as light as air, and so is perfect for a wall hanging like this.
I am offering this class for Virginia Beach, 2018. Here's the link:
In this half-day class, we will be designing beautiful silk dresses on canvas. The gowns and the backgrounds will be ethereal and dreamy. The elements we use will create a mysterious story to go along with the gowns.
I am offering a Walnut Ink making class in Virginia Beach 2018.
Walnut ink is pure gold to an artist. I have used it with a dip pen for writing and drawing, and brushed a background wash on water color paper. It can be diluted or used full strength, and has a long shelf life in a tightly closed jar.
While our ink is brewing, we will be making a wee book by casting a plaster book cover. It will contain circle pages that are origami-folded. Upon opening the book, the pages pop out large enough for a bit of journaling.
