May 7+9 - Silk Marbling
07May

Zen and the art of marbling. Remember those beautiful old paper stacks called books? Well the older (and fancier) ones often had marbled edges and inside covers.  We'll be teaching you how to marble your own paper with custom colors and intricate patterns. Once you get the hang of it we'll show you how to create a beautiful marbled piece of silk.

May 14 - Vintage Sketchbooks!
14May

Sketchbooks make up one of the more important aspects of studio practice.  They give us an intermediate home for our ideas between brain and finished piece.  As a Social Clubber, you are often instructed to "first, come up with an image." Armed with a sketchbook, this step becomes much easier, as you've got a cache of images and ideas at the ready.

This Monday in the Clubhouse we're going to upcycle old hardback books. When you're finished your old book will house a brand new sketchbook or journal.We'll learn how to create simple signatures and how to sew them together.

We'll be using a wide variety of papers to fill your books. Feel free to bring your own if you have a favorite type. We will have a cover for each of you, or you can spend some time in the thrift store and bring your own (it must be a hard cover book).

Yes, you read that right: Plant Pounding this week in the Clubhouse. We'll be creating beautiful prints from flowers and leaves while venting our frustrations with hammers! We'll be using watercolor paper and fabric to put our designs onto.

First we'll be going on a short walk in the neighborhood to see what we can find to create our designs with. Please wear comfortable shoes, pants and sunscreen if needed. We'll be visiting the farmers market for flowers in the morning before you get here. You can also bring some clippings from your yard.

This week in the Clubhouse we're using our sandblaster and vinyl to etch images into glassware.  Dig through your recycling bin and bring those jars that used to hold pickles, spagetti sauce, or olives and we'll give them a whole new life. We'll have some glass on hand too.  Don't be late to this one, or you'll only get to make one piece!
