Life Cast­ing

Ever wish you could freeze time? Pre­serve a moment for­ever in this exclu­sive two-day Life­cast­ing work­shop. This is a fun fam­ily bond­ing art project where the atten­dees cre­ate a pre­cious keep­sake of them­selves hold­ing hands with their child/grandchild/spouse. Amy Wieck, artist and pres­i­dent of the Cen­tral Florida Sculp­tors Guild, will lead the class through the process of Life­cast­ing




Paper Mar­bling

“Mar­bling” is an ancient paint or ink tech­nique that has been used for cen­turies in Turkey, Japan, and Europe to dec­o­rate paint­ings and books. The method involves dip­ping paper or fab­ric, into a liq­uid bath where the swirled ink designs are cre­ated on top of the sur­face.  It is called mar­bling because the ear­li­est Euro­pean designs resem­bled the veins in mar­ble. You will dis­cover the secret that arti­sans guarded closely for hun­dreds of years as instruc­tor Dan Tilstra illu­mi­nates the his­tory and process of mar­bling. You will be fas­ci­nated and delighted by how eas­ily you are able to cre­ate stun­ning works of art! Explore color and pat­tern while you cre­ate one-of-a-kind trea­sures. Any­one of any age or skill level may par­tic­i­pate, as it’s reward­ing for first-time artists and those who are cre­atively advanced.
