2-Day Yarn and String Painting Workshop with Robin L Bernstein
September 3 @ 10:00 am - 3:00 pm
One event on September 3, 2023 at 10:00 am
Learn to make a yarn painting of your own design.
The making of a yarn painting can be much more than drawing a design and filling it in. The process of pressing colorful yarn into wax under the warm glow of a lamp accompanied by the sweet smell of honey is as much meditative as it is exhilarating. Preparatory work will include discussions about composition, optical color mixing, symbolism and content.
In this 2 day workshop: Working on a wood panel, you will transfer this design, prepare the surface using a melted wax medium, and adhere the yarn to the wax by pressing with a stick. A wide variety of colorful yarns and strings will be available to choose from. Techniques included are drawing, creating a composition, transferring a design, melting brushing and smoothing wax, and pressing yarn.
Students should bring: If possible, please bring a Desk Lamp fitted with a bulb that produces small amount of heat, Odds-and-Ends yarn and/or string (not thread!) that you have hanging around
All levels are welcome!
