Our new Soft Sculpture class with @JanetlorenHill and @PaulBelenky was a HIT during the spring semester. Students explored techniques including sewing, crochet, mold-making, weaving and knitting, all used by contemporary artists working with soft sculpture. They deconstructed objects, investigated relationships, and constructed original pieces. We were absolutely amazed with the results. We can't wait to run something like this again in the future. Stay tuned!

Wanting to #getcreative this weekend? Kelly Conroy (@kelly_jean_conroy) is joining us for a double feature. Sign up for one or both of her workshops. On Saturday we have Intro to Enameling, where students will learn how to fuse beautiful glass pigment onto copper shapes. On Sunday we have Sgraffito on Enamel Bowls. Sgraffito loosely translates to "scratched away." Use this decorative technique to explore line, patter and drawings in your jewelry and metalwork. All levels welcome in both workshops. .

One of our favorite workshops is coming back! We have a weekend intensive coming up on Dyeing and the Art of Resist.
.
.
.
Explore several traditional and non-traditional resists techniques including Japanese Shibori stitch resist, folding and clamping as well as pole wrapping etc. Students use basic procedures involved in low immersion dyeing, direct application and over-dyeing on cotton, and play with several of these techniques to achieve various exciting visual textures on their dyed fabrics. Each student will leave with a collection of hand dyed samples; each piece will be unique. Dyes used are Procion MX fiber reactive (cold-water) dyes. These dyes are used with cellulose fibers, and we will be using cotton. June 9 & 10. Register online!

Ur·ban·olo·gist (ʉr′bə näl′ə jist): (noun) a student of, or specialist in, urban problems. As an urbanologist, geographer, historian, and professor, Max Grinnell finds his raison d’etre in describing, critiquing, and analyzing the urban condition. The question “What makes a city?” is something that has fascinated Max since he was young. His courses place a premium on student interaction, meaningful field work, and asking creative questions about the city. Take an intensive course in Transforming Boston this June with Max Grinnell, where you will use the city of Boston, past, present, future, as a case study and backdrop for understanding the urban environment and the role of placemaking in creating community. Students will work in small groups on projects to improve specific public and neighborhood spaces. #maxgrinnell #transformingboston #casestudy #placemaking #community #creatingcommunity #publicspace #neighborhood #urbanologist #boston #local #citylife #bostonma #bostonlife
