On Nov. 10, 2-5 PM I will be hosing the PacRim Sculptors group in my Anta Rosa Studio. Here is all the information and hope you can join us.
Pacific Rim Sculptors – NEXT SPOTLIGHT Nov. 10, 2019: JANE INGRAM ALLEN
The PAC RIM Sculptors Second Sunday Spotlight for November will be hosted by Jane Ingram Allen, sculptor & arts writer, at her studio in Santa Rosa, 3840 Finley Avenue, Bldg. 32, Studio 107. The event will begin with 2:00-3:00 PM visits to see sculptural artworks by several artists in the same studio complex. At 3:00-4:00 PM attendees will return to Jane’s studio for potluck and socializing. From 4:00-5:00 PM Jane will demonstrate sculptural paper making and give participants a chance to try their hand at it. Jane will also talk about her experiences in international artist-in-residencies, curating international outdoor environmental sculpture projects, and writing for Sculpture magazine. You can learn more about Jane by visiting her prior website at http://www.JaneIngramAllen.com and by visiting her Blog at JaneIngramAllen.wordpress.com, which covers more recent art activities.

Handmade Paper Sculpture – 3-D Forms Using an Armature
Saturday, Nov. 16, 10AM – 4 PM – Class fee $125 includes materials
Make an armature of branches or reeds and cover it with handmade paper created from local plants and purchased pulps. You will learn to make a basket-like or 3-D shaped armature, and then learn to make handmade paper and attach it or cover the armature. Your finished creation could be a functional lantern or container or a suspended or standing sculpture. Open to beginning and advanced participants.
Suspended & Relief Sculpture with Handmade Paper and String
Saturday, Nov. 23, 10AM – 4 PM – Class fee $125 includes materials
Learn to make suspended or wall-hung sculpture with the hand papermaking process and string embedded between layers and different ways of joining handmade paper. Work with a variety of purchased pulps such as abaca, cotton (blue jeans) and other locally sourced plant fibers. Try pouring methods and different drying techniques for sculptural works. Sculptures can be suspended from the ceiling or project out from the wall. Suitable for sculptors, fiber artists and mixed media artists interested in creating sculptural works. For beginning and advanced papermakers.
