Wild Threads II: Making Soft Sculpture Patterns w/ Artist-in-Residence

Mon, 06/04/2018 - 6:30pm to 8:30pm

Bring an object made of a hard material that you’d like translate into a soft sculpture. It could be a fork, a stone, a radio, a carrot...almost anything will work. We’ll start class by looking at a few soft sculptures and the patterns used to make them, as well as some artists that use soft sculpture in their work. Then we’ll use a variety of techniques to make the patterns-tracing, drawing, simplifying shapes, using a copy machine. Bring a sketchbook and an open mind!

No experience needed, registration required, maximum 12 participants. Ages 15+
Note: Wild Threads I, II, and III are designed as a series, but can be taken as stand-alone workshops.
