Magic Carpet Ride with David Jarvinen
Friday, February 5, 2021
11:00am – 8:00pm
Price: $370 (included $85 Materials fee)
This session should particularly benefit those who like to mix materials and explore installation methods. Developed in the vein of the Organic Abstract by David Jarvinen, this workshop takes it to a different level! The base is an undulated mesh and thinset substrate that we have prepared in advance and will demonstrate construction during the workshop. Each base will be unique and measure approximately 8″ x 10″. We will work with Smalti, wire, beads, and findings, and miscellaneous materials to create our “Magic Carpet”. Learn design techniques for abstracts, learn to combine materials in ways to achieve texture, pattern, and interest. The method of installation is an embedded method…no grout. It’s all about the negative space! The goal is to leave with a completed piece and all materials provided in this full-day workshop.
