Event Details• Denver, CO
September 28, 2018 - September 29, 2018
Take your Mixed Media Adventures into a new frontier as we explore surface designs with fiber art, paint and acrylic gels & mediums. Working our luscious layers into fiber art vessels, we will play with the power of black, white, color and tons of texture. We will be discussing the basics of acrylic paints, pastes and gels. Students will take this information and explore how acrylic products can create magic with fiber and paint. Everyone will leave with fiber vessels, a hand-sewn booklet, a matted piece of art, some gorgeous greeting cards and new techniques to create luscious layers in both 2 and 3 dimensions.
Everything will be personalized to reflect your unique creative choices. (Absolutely no experience necessary!)
Plan on working on both days from 9:30-3:00 although the schedule may be slightly adjusted before the workshop begins in September. If you are joining us from out of state we would be happy to help with hotel recommendations. The workshop will be held in a neighborhood with easy access to I 25 (close to the University of Denver).
The total cost of the retreat will be $285 plus a $40 material fee which includes the following:
* Absolutely all of your materials; you won't have to bring anything except your lunches and an apron
* Acrylic gels & paste examples
*Handouts with various techniques illustrated
* Morning coffee/tea set up with light snacks
* Lots of personal instruction from two instructors, plus at least 10 hours of classroom instruction
