"Found – Stitch – Paint Workshop"
October 22-28, 2018

This is a hands on, experimental workshop with a strong emphasis on using found materials and inventive applications of textile and mixed media processes as part of the exploration of developing a ‘creative language’. The principles of Wabi Sabi come into play as part of the process of exploring connection to place as you work with your found materials. Taking inspiration from both material and place, the workshop explores the use of layers in found textiles and papers to create folding forms and objects inspired by the land and landscape. Paint, color, collage and stitch will transform the ordinary into the extraordinary as new surfaces emerge and your pieces unfold as you journey, observe and create.
Location: Colle Val d’ Elsa, Italy
Instructor: Cas Holmes
Cost: $3,625 Shared, $4,195 Single
Sponsor: Arts & Cultural Travel
