Fruitlands’ beautiful landscapes will be celebrated with color and texture in this hands-on workshop. The instructor, Elizabeth Ives, will demonstrate and help students work with colorful wools and silks to create either a still life or (weather permitting) a landscape painting in felt. Students will receive a basic tool and material kit that they will be able to take with them for future projects. In an abundance of caution, no tools or materials will be shared.
Allergen Alert: Participation in the class will involve exposure to wool and other textile allergens.
Weather permitting, we will host this class outdoors in the shade to enjoy the beautiful views and environment at Fruitlands while we create. Indoor classroom space will be available for this class to move forward rain or shine.
This program is presented in conjunction with current exhibition “Piecework: Resistance and Healing in Contemporary Textile Art” on view in the Fruitlands Art Gallery. Program participation includes admission to view this exhibition before or after the program. Also on view in the Wayside Gallery is “Homebound” a display of work by local fiber artist, Kara Patrowicz, presented by the Fruitlands Museum Shop.
Class recommended for adults and teens
