In this workshop, participants will interpret the colors in a wool skein onto paper using a variety of artist’s tools including crayons and watercolors.
In her weaving practice, Helena Hernmarck constantly works to see beyond the colors she thinks she sees in a design to get to the colors she actually sees. She then interprets these colors using skeins of wool in her wool wall, combining the strands into colorful bundles, and then weaving them into her tapestries.
In this workshop, participants will ‘do the real thing’ in reverse. They will interpret the colors in a wool skein onto paper using a variety of artist’s tools including crayons and watercolors. In the process, they will get to know, though touch and sight, the special qualities of the wool Helena uses in her tapestries, and learn to see the intricacies of color.
SPACE IS LIMITED. ONLINE REGISTRATION WILL BE AVAILABLE UNTIL WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22, 2020. AFTER APRIL 22, PLEASE CALL THE OFFICE AT 631-749-0025 TO CHECK AVAILABILITY.
