Soft Sculpture Workshop: 4x4

Soft Sculpture Workshop

Join Meghan Rowswell (MadMegh's Studio), the artist representing Missouri in the current special exhibition "4x4: 2018 Midwest Invitational Exhibition," for a unique workshop focused on soft sculpture (the art of creating pattern and form using textiles).

Textiles are a uniquely challenging medium to use for sculpture because of its flatness and lack of rigidity, but its textural qualities and associations make it an extremely rewarding experience. 

Meghan will give a two hour workshop on the different techniques and patterns that can be used to create exciting three dimensional forms with fabric. Students will be introduced to different types of textiles, stiffening practices, and armature construction, as well as given the opportunity to create their own small sculptures.

The cost of the workshop is $45 and covers materials, however please indicate if you are able to bring your own sewing machine. Registration is required.
