Skins and Skeletons with Mo Kelman

August 8 @ 9:00 am - August 12 @ 4:00 pm

Skins, Skeletons, Nets and Knots: 3D Textiles

In this experimental workshop, students will learn methods for building skeletal structures with rigid and semi-rigid materials like rattan, bamboo, wood, wire and found materials.  Techniques will include lashing, chaotic plaiting and wire construction.  To build skins onto these structures, we will work with gut, rice papers, knotted and knotless netting. Coatings like paintable graphite and kakishibu tannin will further modify surfaces.  Exercises, brainstorming sessions, and problem-solving challenges will guide your production of a series of prototypes that will ignite your studio practice. All levels welcome
