Intuitive Sculpture: A Fibre Arts Workshop With Mary Grisey (Session 3) says
This is Thursday! A couple spaces have just opened up so please email to snag your spot!

Intuition is the artist’s most valuable tool. The urgency to unfold ideas from an uninhibited place happens through spontaneous discovering and inventing of materials and methods.

In this adventurous workshop, Mary Grisey will guide you through various modes of fibre-based sculpture techniques and natural dyeing using materials similar to what she has used in her sculptures in the exhibition — horsehair, rope, cotton/linen thread, cheesecloth and/or silk fabric — and dyes hand processed from plants such as madder root and black walnut.

Thursday, March 24 from 6:30–9:30 pm

Paperhouse Studio, Suite 102
Artscape Youngplace
180 Shaw Street, Toronto, Ontario M6J 2W5

Participation fee is subsidized by TYPOLOGY and is just:
$30 for a 3-hour artist-led workshop plus $10 to cover materials including horsehair, silk, and hand processed dyes.

Please email rsvp (at) typology (dot) ca with your name and number attending.

Upon receipt of your email, we will send an invoice which you can pay by e-transfer or PayPal. Space is limited, and your spot in the workshop is only guaranteed upon receipt of full payment.

Come prepared to get your hands wet and your clothes dirty. There will be a limited supply of aprons, or you are welcome to bring your own. The studio floor can get slippery, so please wear closed-toe shoes with good grippy soles. Also, if you have long hair it’s a good idea to bring something to tie it up. Then, have fun!
