Dear Friends of the Butter Factory,
As the end of the year approaches with haste, we would like to wish you all a fabulous festive season and best wishes for a year of creative fulfilment!
To start the year off in 2016, we are thrilled to have Trace Willans back in Denmark running two different workshops at the Butter Factory in January ...
A mixed-media artist, Trace uses a range of materials with a view to their sustainability and low environmental impact. She experiments with traditional mediums such as casein, egg, starch resists, natural dyes and earth pigments., with very exciting and dynamic results. Her work can be viewed on her blog: www.http://www.soewnearth.blogspot.com.au/
. See below for details of the upcoming workshops on the weekend of 16/17 Jan and 24 Jan....
2 Day Plaster and Wax Books Sat & Sunday Jan 16 & 17th 10 - 4
Work with plaster to make pages for a series of small books, in a variety of ways, including openings, niches and as a way to add textural interest. On the first day we
will begin by making many different variations and then we will use the second day to embellish our surfaces, using, e.g. simple handmade paints, collage using rabbit
skin glue, transfers and working with dry pigment. There will be a focus on working with encaustic medium (hot wax). There will be a choice of working in white and
clear wax adding colour to the surface or there will be a range of colours made up for you to play with. This workshop is designed to be as eco friendly as possible so
we will be using only natural materials.
Materials Fee $15
1 Day Rag Pages Workshop Sunday 24th Jan 10 - 4
Starting with cotton rag, work with traditional gesso, cold wax, simple mark making and xanthorrhoea resin to create pieces that can be framed or made into a simple book.
Materials Fee $10
