Upcoming workshops

There will be two great workshops taught by FI19 artists.

Sunday, June 2, 2019
Intro to Sculptural Peyote with FI2019 exhibiting artist Beth Blankenship sponsored by Contemporary Craft.
Add a new skill to your art practice toolbox. In this workshop, students will be introduced to a technique that will give their beadwork a new dimension. Sculptural peyote stitch uses just beads, thread, and tension to create 3-dimensional objects.

August 12-16, 2019
Knitting with Glass with FI2019 exhibiting artist Carol Milne sponsored by Touchstone Center for Crafts, 1hour from Pittsburgh in Farmington, PA.
Learn to knit with glass! Working with strands of wax, you will knit small objects to transform into glass using the lost wax casting process. Carol will cover all aspects of glass casting: wax-working, spruing waxes, mold-making, kiln schedules, divesting, and cold working. All levels are welcome, but beginners should be prepared to be challenged.
Combining her passion for knitting with her love for cast glass and sculpture, Carol is the lone pioneer in the field of knitted glass: creating knitted work in glass for over a decade.
