This 2 day lab workshop will focus on observing and heightening awareness of textures and patterns observed in Nature and learning how to create beautiful folio books, papers, and sculptural forms. The first day will be spent exploring stitching/darning/mending, itajime, marbling, eco-printing, mordants, resists, drawn and painted marks, and creating beautiful surfaces on cotton and linen fabric and paper. (bring lots of samples to play with!). The second day will be spent exploring a wide variety of single folio folds, combined bindings, collaged and “repaired” and reconstructed forms, and exploring sculptural possibilities with the created materials. Alternative processes to promote sustainable field inquiry in nature, touching and recording, and promoting your artistic and mediation practice will be discussed at length.
