Palm Springs 8x

You will work with Glenn making a series of handmade brushes ideal for ink, watercolor, ceramic applications, acrylic applications, oil painting on canvas & batik to cloth surfaces.  Students will observe painting demonstrations and paint with their own brushes during the workshop, in addition to incorporating found brush making materials from nature and one’s personal studio.  Students will explore various sizes with tips-from small to large-and unique handle construction methods.

Palm Springs 6x

 Power Point presentations and detailed instruction will highlight techniques       including knot tying, epoxy mixing, cutting & wrapping hairs, and methods to create   brush handles. Participants will work with deer tail hair, feathers, ermine tail, moose   & elk hair, horsehair, hog bristle, goat hair, squirrel hair and other types of hairs. All   workshop materials will be provided. A “what students can bring to the workshop   list” will be emailed in advance to assist in the personalization and tailoring of student brushes. A supply reference list will be   distributed during the workshop to assist students in knowing where to purchase & find future brush making materials.

  Take home all the gorgeous brushes you created and treat yourself every time you paint or give some away to friends and       family.
