Jane Sassaman, fiber artist, author, fabric designer, and teacher extraordinaire, was here again teaching a workshop for us.
In this class Jane and her students examines a wide variety of artists interpretations of nature. Next the real fun began – they began to manipulate natural forms themselves. Through a series of exercises they experimented with abstraction and exaggeration to capture the essence and energy of each person’s favorite flora photo or drawing.
These photos were taken around the second or third day of the class. You can see how marvelous everyone is doing already.
Inspiration for a future work . . . ?? This is a speedwell plant located just outside the studio.
Jane will be back teaching with us in 2014!
