My workshops are an introduction to skills and technologies giving access to the creative use of plant fibers. Here are some of the design-build workshops I’ve taught that blur the borders of art and craft, merging fiber techniques with sculptural weaving and paper-making.
The workshops here include: Design and Build with NW Plant Materials, Sculptural Weaving and Paper-Making, Creative Uses of NW Plant Materials, Non-Traditional Uses of NW Plant Materials, Innovation With Invasives, Paper Making from the Garden.
“Creativity is allowing yourself to make mistakes. Art is knowing which ones to keep.” – Scott Adams
Inspiration is right out our door at North Cascades Institute.
