Cloth and Thread Abstractions
Registration deadline: March 20
Black Mountain College artist Dorothy Cole Ruddick’s untitled weaving in the Museum’s Collection scaffolds this intensive workshop filled with experiments and explorations in a variety of media—natural plant dyes, vintage materials, cotton, linen, wool roving, and threads—to create an abstract work.
Instructor Catherine Cross Tsintzos is an interdisciplinary artist focusing on environmental and social issues, traditional fine craft, and sustainability. She teaches, speaks, and exhibits extensively at museums and universities in the Southeast, and is the founder of the Art & Agriculture Project.
The Museum's studio program for adults offers a core curriculum in drawing, painting, printmaking, and three-dimensional media, and also explores the intersections between them. Local and visiting artists help students of all levels and abilities develop skills in media that reflect techniques and themes featured in the Museum’s Collection and special exhibitions. Classes meet for 3–12 weeks, and are designed for anyone interested in exploring specific media in depth; daylong workshops introduce new media or processes.
