Event Description

Baskets, Books and Shrines
Instructor: Jo Stealey
Sept 28 - 30
10 am – 5 pm

Jo Stealey’s workshop will explore how objects and materials can be pushed beyond traditional formats to become sculptural. Integrating hand-made paper, basketry, fiber and three-dimensional techniques to encase a small basket into a book or shrine. This multi-media approach generates unique possibilities for all types of sculptural processes. Learn basic techniques to construct your ideas from the inside out through book/box/shrine forms and how to integrate a variety of materials and objects into them.
We will focus on techniques to build a structure around a basket and develop pages of a book to tell a story. The book can be incorporated into the piece or be a companion element. Emphasis will be placed on the construction of a box/form to encase the basket, secret nooks and sculptural possibilities - depicting the “story” the basket wants to tell. Develop a personal myth or “story” through this storybook basket.
Course # 1292123 $350. (plus materials fee @ 20.)
