Application deadline: 14.2.2014 (Friday)
This mixed media workshop consists of two sessions. Session one includes a lecture about rustic, sculptural signposts and wall pieces suitable for fine art décor; a demonstration of driftwood preparation and sign painting and lettering. Session two consists of a hands-on workshop for participants to design and construct signs made from rough-cut wood, driftwood and beach-combed items. Each participant will create at least two small beach-themed signs with custom words, colors, and decorative embellishments, such as seashells, beach glass, driftwood, and ceramic shards. Participants will gain a wider understanding of how to use traditional and non-traditional art making materials and methods to create decorative signs and plaques.
