New Materials Transformation Workshop with Leisa Rich | $75
July 11 @ 9:00 am – 4:00 pm
Irving Arts Center http://irvingartscenter.com
This intriguing explorations workshop is exclusive to the Irving Arts Center. An excellent learning experience for all skill levels! In this intensive materials workshop, participants will creatively explore a new, revolutionary felt-like fabric (Fosshape®) that can be magically transformed from soft and flat to hard and dimensional when heat is applied.
Using steamers and heat guns, students will learn how to mold and manipulate this material into sculptural forms that can become art pieces, vessels, hats or costumes, in just about any shape that can be imagined! Innovative dyeing techniques will be used to paint on the pieces before and after completion to create stunning, permanent effects.
Registration is open to individuals 17 and older. Workshop fee is $75 with discount for IAC Art Connection Members and Irving Art Association Members( $50). Materials and art supplies will be provided. Participants should bring a bag lunch.
