WF01 Small Vessels, Big Ideas

This event is no longer on sale.

Friday March 6

10:00 AM  –  5:00 PM

All levels                     1 day

Using the simple construction technique of coiling, we will emphasize idea generation in making small vessels. Coiling is a versatile, hands-on process used to make a form in combination with many different materials and techniques. . Learning “small” is a quick way to develop skills that will allow for the development of ideas in future work.

Lissa Hunter is a full-time studio artist living in Portland, Maine. Since she earned an MFA in Textiles from Indiana University, her work has concentrated on basketry, using many fiber techniques, and has most recently included drawing and clay. Her work is in major museum collections, including the Smithsonian American Art Museum, The Museum of Art and Design and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts. Teaching, writing and curating are important parts of her practice and she is honored to have been elected Life Trustee of Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in 2017.

Jo Stealey is a full-time studio artist living in Columbia, Missouri. She is a professor emerita from the University of Missouri. Her work has focused on sculptural fiber using handmade paper and basketry techniques, and is in major collections including the Smithsonian’s National Portrait Gallery and The Spencer Art Museum in Pensacola, FL. Teaching, writing, and thinking through the relationship of ideas and the visual manifestation of ideas through materials, techniques, and form are the foundation of her practice.
