Explorations in Mixed-Media Mark-Making with Lorraine Glessner

02/18/2023 12:00 PM - 02/25/2023 02:00 PM ET


With an intense focus on mixed media, this workshop involves the exploration of the act of mark-making as a vehicle for the discovery of form, materials and ideas. We will explore the mark-making possibilities of pyrography (creating marks and patterns with fire, heated metal tools and objects), soot, rust and botanical printing, and are encouraged to respond to these marks utilizing various techniques and media. Other processes and media covered in this workshop include image transfer, ink, horsehair, soy wax resist, stitch, gesso, glues and creating your own grids, laces and lace like forms using free motion sewing machine embroidery on water soluble stabilizer. Throughout the workshop, we will be prompted by a series of thought-provoking exercises geared toward process, experimentation and providing visual form to that which has no form - thoughts, ideas, emotions, feelings, etc. We will develop a personal vocabulary through the creation of a portfolio of samples which may be worked into a quilt, a book or exist as small-scale art pieces suitable for framing or further embellishment.
