What you will learn...
Learn the steps for creating a one of a kind lasting piece of art, with handmade Cracked Linen. This is an exploration of digital imagery, drawing, painting, sculpting and gilding with Cracked Linen plaster on fiber medium.
I will provide several pieces of my material for you to work on. Each piece will be sized to create a finished piece. In the time you have, you will be able to create 1-2 finished pieces... a journal, a small lidded box, and/or a framable piece of art. Very possibly all 3 depending on how complex your design is.
We will paint, sketch, and glue images I provide, or you can bring your own. If you choose to bring your own images, make sure they are copied on thin plain copy paper which works better to allow the cracked linen to show through. Black and White or color are fine. Interesting florals, birds, architectural details etc... use your imagination :) ( Please see some of my images for scale )
All materials provided. I will have plenty for you to work with.
Bring an apron and thin latex or vinyl protective gloves if you want.
Gold and Silver leaf is +$8 and kits of Cracked Linen to take home will be available for $40. Blank writing journals can be purchased for $10,
We will break for lunch at noon, and I will provide a list of cute cafe's in the area once you register. Or you can bring your own lunch.
