What The F!?! – Fiber, Fabrics, Fusing, Facades with Jaz Graf

August 19 - August 23

| $350 – $1200

What The F!?! – Fiber, Fabrics, Fusing, Facades – Jaz Graf

Dates: August 19 – August 23, 2024
Studio: Papermaking
Tuition: Sliding Scale, $350 – $1200
Lab Fee: $100
Class limit: 8

How do materials collide and synthesize to convey our embodied and metaphorical stories? How might we translate old prints, drawings, and cloth scraps to enrich something new? We will use fibers such as mulberry, abaca, cotton, recycled materials, and fabrics as foundations for fusing, embedding, layering, and image construction. Participants will explore pattern, texture, and color from matrices, stencils, and other fragments through water-based pigments, and pulp blowouts, with experimental drying techniques including stack, restraint, and air drying. All levels of experience are welcome. All are encouraged to feel empowered to play with the possibilities.

In order to reserve your space in the class, we require a $150 nonrefundable deposit. WSW offers a sliding tuition model for the Summer Art Institute, and you can pick your desired tuition level from the drop-down menu at check-out. If you are in a position to pay full tuition or more, we request that you do so. The pay-as-you-can model is not based on tax returns or documentation, rather your self-determined capacity to pay. Registration is on a first-come first-served basis, and you can read about our refund and cancellation policies here.
