In addition to the bracelet class, I will be offering another evening class in Portland working with gourds. Gourds are a fun medium to work with - you can burn, paint, collage, dye and use color pencils to decorate the exterior and turn them into almost anything you can imagine since they come in all shapes and sizes. Here is a sample of a gourd I woodburned, dyed with watercolor pigment then wove fiber into spaces cut from the gourd to represent water.
I will also be teaching an evening and a full day class in wire weaving baskets and forms. This is a new class for me, but I know you will enjoy learning to make these fun woven wire baskets and/or a woven wire bird. I can't wait to see what new shapes and forms will be created in the class. This medium can be used in many ways from sculpture, to basketry and jewelry and beyond. Wood, glass and beads can be incorporated in the finished piece of art.
