Figure drawing is part of the foundation of a drawing practice.  In this class we will seek to demystify drawing the body and rediscover the poetry of the human form.  Using a live nude model as inspiration, we will begin with a series of 30 second poses using soft charcoal to loosen up our technique, and then will move into studies of longer poses in which we can explore light and shadow, details and different media.  The main emphasis in this class is to capture the life and energy that is present in the human body, not necessarily to draw a photorealistic portrait.  Perfect for beginners and advanced artists alike! All materials will be provided by us, but feel free to BYOB!

Sashiko Mending Workshop with Katrina Rodabaugh | $160

MendingMattersPhoto7.jpg

Two sessions     |    10a-1p & 2p-5p

Mending is a wonderful way to practice hand-stitching and simultaneously participate in Slow Fashion. Simple stitches transform torn or distressed garments, homewares, and other textiles through thoughtful, beautiful repairs. Sashiko is a traditional Japanese hand-stitching technique that lends itself beautifully to contemporary crafts. It’s also the perfect stitch to mend existing garments or embellish textiles. Katrina Rodabaugh will lead the group in a discussion of cross-cultural mending techniques like Japanese Boro and Sashiko, American quilting, and European darning and their modern applications in Visible Mending and Slow Fashion. The class will also consider “mendfulness” or applying mindfulness to fashion and the creative opportunity in repair.

This workshop will lead participants through an overview of basic Sashiko and embroidery stitches before turning to a personal garment that needs repairing. Each student will receive an individual consultation on how best to mend one garment considering fabric, fiber, thread, color, lines, techniques, and more. Students will leave the workshop with a stitching sampler, mended garment (in-progress), various resources, and several materials. Basic sewing and stitching skills are required.

Please bring your own woven fabric garment or textile for mending (denim is great, linen, quilting cotton, or silk is fine too) and a patch that matches the weight and fiber of the garment being mended. (Denim should be mended with denim and linen with linen, etc.)

Please enroll by 11/8 to ensure your spot in the workshop!

Makers Workshop: Figure Drawing | $46

Photo Jul 19, 8 55 04 PM_preview.jpeg

Figure drawing is part of the foundation of a drawing practice.  In this class we will seek to demystify drawing the body and rediscover the poetry of the human form.  Using a live nude model as inspiration, we will begin with a series of 30 second poses using soft charcoal to loosen up our technique, and then will move into studies of longer poses in which we can explore light and shadow, details and different media.  The main emphasis in this class is to capture the life and energy that is present in the human body, not necessarily to draw a photorealistic portrait.  Perfect for beginners and advanced artists alike! All materials will be provided by us, but feel free to BYOB!
