This workshop will encourage participants to explore visual ideas suggested through openwork textile structure, primarily that of knotted netting and knotless netting. Reserving space for air and the importance of what is “not there” will be built into conceptually based quick studies and studio projects, both 2-D and 3-D. There will be exploration with a variety of materials, including gut (hog casings), Hickman’s signature material, using it as both structure and skin in netting. Other materials include colored wire and waxed linen thread. The workshop is less a “how to”, more an experience in discovery, questioning, and ongoing ways of working. No previous knowledge of these textile structures is required, just a willingness to explore and learn.
Pat Hickman will be featured in a solo exhibit, Here, Still, in the DAC Art Library, September 8-October 28. Join us for the opening reception on Friday, September 8 at 5pm.
