Brooks Harris Stevens
In this workshop students explore what surface means, and how to creatively embellish a variety of traditional and non-traditional surfaces including those found on the Arrowmont campus. While learning the applicable skills in embellishment, participants discover the meaning of materials within different contexts that are relative to their artistic pursuits. Using fabric, found items, the landscape and the built environment, you will learn a range of techniques including stitching, appliqué, beading and other means of adornment. This class offers sound skills for the beginner, to advanced skills focusing on developing an expanded material language and technique applications. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $525
