Basketry Workshop with Peeta Tinay

Immerse yourself in a 2 day, all Inclusive basketry workshop (held 10am-6pm both days)

Are you new to basket making or always wanted to take a workshop? Come cut your teeth on a challenging and rewarding beginning basket. Made baskets in the past? Come brush up on your skills and learn some new techniques and perspectives about basket making. Students will learn the twining technique, the fundamentals of materials selection, basket shaping, and the importance of tension while making an approximate 15" diameter x 3" tall basket.

Baskets will be made from multiple diameters of round reed which lend textural interest. The split spoke and twined construction of this basket base will boast a colorful spiral pattern. There will be vibrant colors to choose from for the basket base as well as black and brown round reed for those with a more subdued palette. All round reed will be pre-dyed (with Jacquard Basic Dyes) and prepared for this specific project.

Requirements: age 18+; hand strength required.

Cost: $300 (2-day workshop, 10am-6pm each day)

East Meets West: Batik + Encaustic with Susan Stover

  • Atelier One Studios #8 (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Batik is a textile technique originating in Indonesia. It involves applying wax to fabric to create a pattern which resists the dye in the coloring process. The tools and methods of batik are very adaptable to painting with encaustic. This 2-day workshop will explore traditional batik on fabric with the intention of incorporating the fabrics into encaustic painting (featuring waxes by Jacquard). We will also explore how these traditional techniques can be adapted to be used in a contemporary way as participants will be encouraged to explore their own interests in mark-making and pattern. This class is intended for those with working experience of encaustic at an intermediate or advanced level.

March 16-17, 2019 (2-day workshop, 10am-4pm each day)
Atelier One Studios #8, Graton, CA

Fee: $350 + $25 materials fee.

Structural Alterations: Exploring Sculptural Work using Wood and Encaustic

Artists have been using wood as a sculptural material for thousands of years and wood continues to be used as a versatile material by contemporary artists today. We will explore how wooden structures are assembled and will use encaustic paint in conjunction with wood to realize each artist’s personal vision. Wood manipulation, assembling techniques, and finishing ideas will be covered in the class as well as how wax can be used to add subtle and bold color statements.  Encaustic techniques exploring glazing and pouring will be covered. The class will look at contemporary artists working sculpturally in wood. While much technical information is covered in the class the major emphasis in the class is on each artists personal vision and what they are communicating. The class will include several PowerPoint presentations. No experience is required for taking the class.
