Is is all of this and even more--or just a little note about an observation? The way we treat materials matters. The material choices matter. Each material has its character, its soul, its temperature. In this workshop we are diving into the fascinating world of stories, meanings, and feelings about The Nature of Materials! Based in the Netherlands and France, jeweler Terhi Tolvanen creates innovative and poetic works that have been exhibited around the world.

At its most basic, a setting is a tiny feat of engineering that renders a gem wearable--as in a gemstone ring or pendant. But settings aren't just for showing off stones! They can be used to protect and attach a wide variety of items, from found objects to paper ephemera. Starting from the fundamentals of bezel setting, this class will also cover approaches such as square bezels, undulating bezels, hybrid prong settings, and setting with rivets, cages, and frames. With these skills, you'll be able to turn almost anything into a gem. You'll also be able to scale your settings up for use in sculptures or even installation art. You'll complete several samples or jewelry items and have time to undertake more experimental individual projects with your instructor's support. Prerequisite: JM1 or the ability to solder independently.

Drypoint is a rich and experimental form of non-toxic intaglio printmaking. Prints are created using an etching needle on Plexiglas and rubbing ink into the incised lines to offset the image onto paper with the use of an etching press. Textures, tones, lines, and colors are built up in layers and can be printed in both unique forms or small editions. Students will learn image building, wiping and printing, and multiple plate printing techniques to produce a body of printed work. Prerequisite: Entry level and experienced printers welcome.

In this workshop we will make all the commercially available materials and give you time to play with them. Every student will come away with $150 worth of acrylic paints in a full spectrum of colors and various mediums to alter them with.

Usually color is taught as 'Color Theory' which involves tediously painting in hundreds of little squares or placing pre-colored papers next to each other. After doing these exercises you still don't know what to do in your real life painting. This workshop is focused on actually using color on your painting and understanding how it works in a way you can use right away. First we will understand how to create and see color using a limited pallette which will teach you how to mix and see subtle color much more effectively. Then, studying particular masters, we will unlock the color harmony in their work so that you can reproduce it in a work of your own. In the end you will have at least two paintings to take home that you can use to find your own individual palette. We will be using oil paint and canvas which is provided for you, please bring your own brushes and palette knives if you have them. This workshop is located offsite at The Miller School of Art in Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES INCLUDED. Prerequisite: none

Moku-hanga differs from many techniques for its use of water based ink- and for being printed by hand, without a press. In this class you will start by using water based ink, but also explore the possibilities of printing by hand in the traditional style while using western oil-based inks instead. By the end of this workshop you will be able to take this technique and print at home, in an unventilated space and without a press!

Have you ever wanted to learn to draw and paint from the figure without having to draw like Leonardo? Then this rigorous, but fun class is for you. Learn how to follow shapes, create space, and most of all compose your page, without painstaking proportions and measurements. We will use the model to look hard, but we won't be working towards 19th century realism. You will be composing and deconstructing on the fly, at a fast pace, alternating with very slow and deliberate observation. You can't be attached to the outcome, or even have any idea of what your work will look like when it is done. In fact your work will be 'undone' if it gets predictable. This will be action packed 'process' with no possibility of staying in your rut if you have one. You will be provided with a large canvas, paper, and drawing and painting materials. Absolute beginners are perfect for this class as well as advanced artists. This workshop is located offsite at Miller School of Art in Georgetown. ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED.

Taku-hon (stone rubbing) is one of the most ancient printmaking methods originating from China and Japan almost 2000 years ago was used to create prints of memorial texts, textured and patterned surfaces as well as 'right reading' prints of the carved stone surfaces of scripts in ancient temples. Working with Oaxacan artist Mercedes Lopez you will learn the technique of molding Japanese style paper onto an object and adding ink to the surface. This produces a print image which, when dry, keeps the texture and volume of the object. Both ways of doing Taku-hon: Kantaku (dry process) and Shittaku (wet method). Both will be covered in this workshop. Prerequisite: None

Did you ever wonder how Bonnard, Manet, or Cezanne handled their oil paint? You can learn a lot by imitating the paint application of the masters. Some used layers of dry paint, some had directional strokes, and some had lush wet strokes. Unlike the older masters who used layers of glazes over monotone underpaintings, the Moderns each had an individual method that you can experience yourself. When you understand how the paintings were made you gain insight into the vision of the unique person who created them. Plus with some historical context you will realize how innovative and daring they were. In this workshop we will work with oil paint on three canvases to reproduce a section of a painting from each of the artists listed above. When you are done you will be able to go to museums and get a feeling for what went into the painting you are observing. You will also develop approaches to try in your own paintings. Bring your own brushes if you have them. ALL SUPPLIES PROVIDED. Prerequisite: none

Many people think that if they can't draw in proportion they are 'not talented' and have no business doing art. Nothing could be further from the truth. If you are not suited to careful measuring and painstaking draftsmanship you are not alone. This has nothing to do with whether or not you are 'talented' or whether or not you should try making art. This workshop will teach even the most drafting averse person how to get proportion without sacrificing the real value of the artwork, which is to learn to be comfortable with your own set of 'talents'. Some people never can make precise measurements but they can still draw in proportion through an intuitive quick approach.

Come take an introductory class on green woodworking. You'll start with learning about log selection. Then you'll use a froe to split a green log to make your seat blank and stool legs. If you have some artist tree branches laying around at home, bring them to use as stool legs! You'll use a drawknife for general shaping of parts, plus a brace and bit for the leg joint. This will be a fast-moving class, but you'll leave with a crude, simple stool that will have a lot of charm. Beginners welcome. Prerequisite: None. Supply fee: $40. Come prepared to spend lots of class time outdoors. When indoors, this class will meet in the woodturning studio. **Tools will be provided, but if you have your own: drawknife, spokeshave, brace and bit, bring them to class.

Learn the ancient 'lost wax' casting process. First, you'll learn basic moldmaking to duplicate a design in wax. This wax copy is then 'invested' in a plaster and sand mixture. Then the wax will be burned out of the plaster, leaving a void to be filled with bronze. Finally, finish your bronze and color it through 'chasing' and 'patination' techniques. All materials except the cost of bronze are included in supply fee. Prerequisite: None Supply Fee $115

Instructor: Mario Messina

We will begin by exploring the origins of the Acari lamp traditions as well as current trends in the art of scuptural paper lamps. From this we can gain inspiration and ideas for a pendant lamp design that can be completed in the five day class. 
In this class you will learn to build a sculptural lamp using several different wood bending techniques such as heat bending thin strips of wood, and using basket Reed, and a tapered lamination technique that is unique and and fun. This is a technique I use to create three dimensional bends such as spirals, and helical forms without the constraints of clamps or conventional bending forms. You will learn the basics of the tapered lamination process, beginning with rough lumber that you will joint, plane, and rip into thin strips to be tapered. We will then prepare the tapered lamination pieces by using a simple tapering jig that you will build. 
Techniques such as how to safely rip thin strips on a table saw, how to use a block plane and tapering jig, a unique use of stretch-wrap as a clamping method, and how to use a spoke-shave and cabinet scraper to shape and finish the curved frame parts will be the focus of this class. We will be using various types glue and cordage such as waxed sail twine to lash and form an armature on to which you will apply layers of mulberry fiber paper (rice paper) using art paper techniques to form a seamless shell. You will also learn to properly wire the electrical components of the lamp to code. 
It is recommended that you have some basic wood working skills with the table saw, joiner, planer, and band saw, and enjoy using hand tools. 
  • Discuss the creative potential and limitations of this lamination technique. 
  • Build simple bending forms and tapering jigs for the tapered lamination process. 
  • Learn how to bend thin strips of wood with a hot air gun. 
  • Using the tapered lamination,glue, heavy-gauge stretch wrap and forms, to execute the process of lamination to build the wood armature for the lamp. 
  • Learn to use hand tools such as, block plane, spoke-shave, and cabinet scrapers to taper and shape curved parts. 
  • To learn to properly wire the lamp to code. 
  • Learn to apply art paper techniques to the lamp armature to create a seamless skin on frame form. 


 Tools students must bring: 
  • Sharp block plane, and spokeshave. The Lie-Nielsen's Boggs Spokeshave is best for this work with a curved sole. If you don't have these tools, Pratt has a few of them to share. 
  • A sharp card scraper.
