Ceramics Intensive

Printmaking Intensive

VPA 211 Wednesdays, 6:30-9:15PM
This printmaking intensive will introduce a variety of printmaking processes, including wintergreen transfer, collagraph, plate lithography, linocut, and woodcut. Students will learn to print with off-press processes.

Felt Stories

VPA 213 | Thursdays, 6:30-9:15PM
A contemporary take on the ancient practices of felting, embroidery, and narrative. Using natural and dyed wool, you will make two and three-dimensional pieces ready to be enhanced with experimental embroidery. With soap, water, and fleece, felting expert Paulina Fuenzalida will guide you through the processes of wet felting, nuno felting, and needle-felting; taking inspiration of Marisa Karasz’s 1950s innovative stitching techniques, you will embellish the felt with stories you can’t wait to tell!

Courses begin June 2 and end August 6, 2020
