VIRTUAL: Rock, Paper Stitches- Joomchi & Embroidery

Instructor: Jan Wutkowski

'Rock' two slow-process crafts in one unique class! Day 1 will concentrate on learning an ancient Korean paper craft to create a 'felted' paper called joomchi. Joomchi utilizes layers of thin hanji papers that, through agitation and manipulation, create a sturdy piece that can be used alone or in other artistic endeavors. One such endeavor will be achieved on Day 2. Taking the previous day's joomchi pieces, you'll use simple hand stitches for mark making, to add found objects, or to stitch several joomchi together for a larger, dramatic piece of finished paper art. (This is not a paper making class.)

VIRTUAL- Painting the Features: the eye

Instructor: Amy Gibson

This one day online workshop will take you through the steps of creating a painting of an eye. We will go over the structure of the eye, creating a 3-dimensional shape on a 2-dimensional surface. We will go over color mixing and special details that make an eye look realistic! I will have an eye photo reference for everyone to use and show you how to get your panels gessoed and ready to paint!
