Lauran Sundin: Wire Bobbin Lace for Contemporary & Traditional Lace Makers @ Go Create! New England
Sep 28 @ 9:30 am – Sep 30 @ 4:00 pm
Lauran Sundin: Wire Bobbin Lace for Contemporary & Traditional Lace Makers @ Go Create! New England

Although Lauran is a contemporary lace maker and will concentrate primarily on contemporary bobbin lace, the techniques, covered in the class, would benefit the traditional lace maker who wishes to make traditional pieces using wire. These techniques can also be used for larger dimensional sculptural pieces although she will cover small-scale jewellery applications. Lauran will explore two important aspects; focusing on the special methods of working with wire will help the student understand the structural integrity inherent to metal and its potential for dimensional design, emphasis on proper tensioning and the technique of working the wire around the pins, in a systematic manner to achieve precise stitches will be covered in detail. Additional she will cover methods for making all those wire ends “disappear”.

Tara Axford: “ A SENSE OF PLACE” USING A GELLI PLATE + MONO PRINTS @ Go Create! New England
Nov 2 @ 9:30 am – Nov 3 @ 4:00 pm
Tara Axford: “ A SENSE OF PLACE” USING A GELLI PLATE + MONO PRINTS @ Go Create! New England

How to really see where you are, and use it in your work.

Using found objects, patterns and textures we will explore how they reflect a sense of place and create a connection to our surroundings.

We will find, document, edit, print, collage and create. Using mono prints with a gelli plate, and found specimens, we will use mixed media to ‘zoom in’ on our location and work with that. By abstracting the essence of a place we’ll create something inspired by our location. So the viewer can also experience something they may have previously overlooked, with fresh eyes.

The workshop will incorporate the principles of design in artwork, fail safe tricks and techniques to explore composition.

Participants will create a ‘field notes’  for a sketchbook, artist book, and a series of prints and collage works.
