“Coming February 18 + 19 2012: Weekend workshop with Susy Pilgrim Waters & Sarajo Frieden. We will be co-teaching a workshop at Teahouse Studio! Early bird registration is on until 1/15 so register now! Class size is limited. A great gift for someone or for yourself!

Susy Pilgrim Waters and Sarajo Frieden live thousands of miles apart but their friendship has developed over the years through a combined love of art, design, textiles, color, and lots of laughter. Their work often blurs distinctions between craft, art, illustration and graphics, utilizing both the digital and handmade. In this two day workshop you will enjoy a special opportunity: a double dose of Susy Pilgrim Waters and Sarajo Frieden’s combined experience as artists, illlustrators and designers. Learn firsthand the strategies two successful artists have developed to continue evolving in their work. In this workshop we will: Play! Take a hands on approach using a variety of media: drawing, painting, collage, monoprints, found objects, layering, sewing, personal memorabilia Use warm-up sessions and explore the value of keeping a sketchbook of loose daily drawing. Create for the sheer fun of it. Cultivate a beginner’s mind, or freshen up a jaded one!! We will share strategies for getting unstuck and over hurdles. Using a variety of media (inks, gouache, collage, drawing, etc) you will create a personal sketchbook that can be taken home and built upon for further inspiration or use. This workshop is for beginners and experienced people alike. Ability to play essential! What will be provided: Matte gel medium, Dr. Martin Inks, Acryla Gouache (by Holbein), some mixed paper, water colour, sheets of wonderfoam and scissors and speedball printing inks for monoprinting and use in collage.”
