About The Class
Instructor: Pat Hickman
Workshop Title: Breathing Baskets
Explore openwork textile structures—knotted netting and knotless netting. Through quick studies and studio projects, using a range of materials, you will experiment with reserving space for air, examining the importance of what is "not there." You will become comfortable with netting techniques, and you will understand how those can be used to express ideas in sculptural baskets. You will push your own limits of imagination and think about what you have to say in your work. Together we will discover, question, and develop ongoing ways of working once the workshop is over. Open to all.
Materials list will be posted here by May 14.
