Wrapping Wild: Making Textile Sculptures out of Recycled Materials

Bryant Holsenbeck

October 6, 13, & 20, 2021
4:00-6:00p.m. ET 

REGISTRATION CLOSED

This is a workshop about making textile sculptures out of the STUFF of our everyday lives. Nothing bought, nothing ordered except for some wire for the 3rd class)—only what you can find!  It is a time to pull out your old socks, your ripped and stained T-shirts, the long unworn clutter at the back of your bureau drawers. Help your partner out by using their old ties and shoelaces, suspenders and more.  It is time to make space in our lives. Let’s use our hearts, and our hands and clean out our closets at the same time. I will lead you through a series of exercises and show you some simple techniques that you can use to transform the ordinary into extraordinary sculptures. In the 3rd class we will begin to incorporate wire structures into our work. Our challenge will be to take bits and pieces from our everyday world and make them into art. I hope you will join us.

4:00-6:00p.m. ET

My name is Teresa Currea from Bogotá, Colombia. I was born in August 1985, and studied fine arts in Colombian Nacional University, and graduate in 2008. Since that moment it begins my path as an independent artist, exploring drawing and paper construction in my work. In my pieces, I use the idea of diorama, as a way of changing a bidimensional drawing in a tridimensional scenario, using surrealism like inspiration. Lately my work is attached to images and forms from Japan because I lived there for a bit more then a year during 2020.

Felting for the Holidays

Elise Kyllo

December 10 & 17, 2021
4:00- 6:00 PM ET 

Tuition: $180

*Class kit is included in registration 

This is a great class for beginners and fun for experienced felters, children or adults.  Students will practice the basics of wet felting and needle felting while making four small objects related to winter and the holidays.  During week one, we will focus on wet felting while making a melted snowman and a seamless resist santa hat (for our tomtens).  During the second week, students will learn about the tools, tricks and techniques of needle felting sculptural items while making a 3-dimensional snowman and the wooly bearded head for the Tomten.   You will learn about different types of wool, wool batting and wool roving, processed and unprocessed and why different types of wool are important.    Students are welcome to work along with me but their projects may not be completed in the time provided. 

*I will provide all the materials and tools needed for the projects except for a few things found in your home. 

Students will be encouraged, but not required, to work on their projects during the week and share their work during the following session, as we learn from and inspire each other. “I don’t expect all projects to look alike and I look forward to seeing how each person uses the given materials in their own unique way.” For those who don’t know about the Tomten; this is a Scandinavian precursor to the American Santa, but the Tomten is a mischievous character in a Santa style hat that takes residence in a home.  They are known to play tricks on people and steal sweets.

I think of myself as a crafty fiber artist, using my favorite medium of wool to make things that are useful and beautiful.  Wool is a medium that has few boundaries and a willingness to be sculptural, painterly,  playful and practical.  “It’s somewhat of a mystery as to how I fell in love with wool, but undoubtedly it’s the close connection to the land, the sustainability of fiber from sheep and magically transforming wool into an endless list of things with just water, soap and patient agitation.  Felting is completely intoxicating and never, ever dull.  There is joy, playfulness and happy surprises when working with wool, which I love to share with others.”  I’ve been teaching felting to children and adults for 13 years in a variety of folk schools and in community settings.

One whisk broom is never enough! Great for cleaning off car seats or work benches, whisking dirt out of the tent while camping, sweeping those dust bunnies into the dustpan, brushing fur from clothing, using around the wood stove for little bits of wood and ash, or sweeping snow from your clothes and mukluks when you walk through the door, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without them. In this online class, students will learn the basic method for weaving a whisk broom handle, then will use that knowledge to assemble multiple whisk brooms of traditional styles.  We will discuss additional styles of whisk brooms and their construction so you can continue your exploration after class. Materials fees cover the main tool for this craft, a foot bobbin, and enough broomcorn, weaving material and string to assemble six whisk brooms.

Kits will be required and included in registration.  Each kit includes a wooden foot bobbin and enough broomcorn, weaving stems, leather hanging loops, and string to assemble six whisk brooms. If interested in purchasing as an international student please contact [email protected]

No special skills are required, however moderate hand strength is important in broommaking.

Marybeth was born in the Midwest and spent her childhood summers exploring the forests and lakes of the Northern Midwest.  After studying Ecology and Forestry, she worked in remote backcountry settings and with people who had strong ties to the land and rich cultural histories and traditions inspired by those landscapes. Those experiences, combined with multiple folk school internships, influenced Marybeth to delve into the world of traditional craft. After gaining years of experience turning wood, carving spoons and tying broomcorn brooms, she went rogue, quit her job, and started making her living and lifestyle by selling her hand-crafts, teaching, and harvesting wild foods.

Maggie Sasso is a Milwaukee based artist producing conceptual bodies of work that express macro-cosmic ideas through microcosmic detail and examine the role of material culture in relationship to our collective past. Her installations are tactile and penetrable, employing Great Lakes maritime culture as a catalyst to plunge us into narratives of emotional and uncanny vastness. Using fiber art and textiles techniques to stand in for traditionally hard-bodied forms, and presenting objects as theatrical props and material relics, Sasso considers the balance between difficult tragedy and humorous optimism and regards ordinary stories from Midwestern characters as reverent legends.
