Metalsmith Workshop Chasing and Reousse

Metalsmith Workshop Chasing and Reousse
Description:

WORKSHOP: Chasing and Repoussé
Materials: $35, Member: $95, Non-Member: $105
Instructor: Michael Coffey
This class will explore the basics of Chasing and Repoussé, an ancient technique utilized worldwide to create beautiful works with relatively small amounts of material. The class will begin with students making a set of their own punches in two different sizes, and the tools will then be heat treated and polished. A suggested set of basic projects will be supplied, but students are encouraged to bring examples of the sort of work they would like to produce. Students can expect to go home with their own set of tools as well as a finished piece, perhaps more depending on time constraints and ambition.

Weekend art workshop: Embellished Monotypes

Weekend art workshop: Embellished Monotypes Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

Embellished Monotypes (without using a press) June 9, 10

We’ll begin by making monotypes. These “starters” will be loose foundations for us to build upon. You’ll answer what each print calls for by using other methods, such as: painting, collage, cutting, drawing, sewing, and so on. The choice of methods depend on whatever feels “right” for each individual artwork. We will learn how to create monotypes with the direct trace method, and by painting on freezer paper (and other nonabsorbent surfaces) for transferring onto paper.

We will use intuition, intention, music, and simply have a good time letting loose with texture, color, and layers. Then we’ll work onto the prints with other materials, such as paint, transfers, and collage. Expansion and experimentation are encouraged! Discussion of your works in progress, examples of other artwork in this vein, and the creative process will be ongoing throughout the weekend. No experience necessary.

WHEN: June 9 and 10, 9:30-4:30 (or as late as you want to work on your own in the studio).
WHERE: Leslie Fry’s spacious studio at 48 Elm St., Winooski, VT.
COST: $350, materials fee $50. A deposit of $100 (Paypal, check, credit card) one week (preferably earlier) before the workshop will secure your place.
Bring your own lunch, a cooler with drinks and snacks will be on hand. Minimum of 4 people, maximum 6. Everyone will have plenty of individual help.

Art workshop: All Together Now: Collage, Drawing, and Painting on Paper Vermont Arts 2018
Description:

All Together Now: Collage, Drawing, and Painting on Paper

Create unique works on paper with mixed materials and processes. Basic drawing, painting, and collage will be explored through different exercises and then expanded upon. We’ll draw and paint with graphite, charcoal, ink, acrylic, and gouache. Different adhesives, materials, and cutting methods will be used in collage. We’ll consider what each piece “needs” and hone our “seeing” skills, whether the composition is abstract or images.

Participants may bring in previous prints and drawings to work with, though no experience is necessary for this workshop. Discussion of your works in progress, examples of other artists’ work, and the creative process will be ongoing throughout the weekend.

WHEN: June 23 and 24, 9:30-4:30 (or as late as you want to work on your own in the studio).
WHERE: Leslie Fry’s spacious studio at 48 Elm St., Winooski, VT.
COST: $350, materials fee $50. A deposit of $100 (Paypal, check, credit card) one week (preferably earlier) before the workshop will secure your place.
