The Marriage of Surface and Form

Mon. 9 Jul, 2012 9:00 am - Fri. 13 Jul, 2012 9:00 am

A class with Bonnie Bishoff and Melanie West

This four day course will be a fun mash-up of creative discovery.  This class brings together the experience and visions of two world renowned artists, Bonnie Bishoff and Melanie West, who will invite students to join them in the exploration of creativity, play and the marriage of surface and form.

Bonnie will share, among other gems, her stunning marquetry technique, incorporating the feel of brushstrokes and fabric. Melanie will share her methods for organic form and the materials behind them. Together, they will help students explore their creative voice through (among other things) the creation of an organic bangle, laminated with marquetry and other methods.
