Opie and I recently came back from closing on our loft (major YAY!) - sadly we only stayed for a week this time, but while we were there, my close friend Gail told me her daughter-in law Nissa is teaching a workshop at Snow Farm in MA in June. Nissa's work is nothing short of breath-taking!
here's some info on her workshop...
Nissa Kubly teaches a Week-long In- Depth Workshop: Etching on Metal.
June 10-16, 2012 at Snow Farm: New England Craft Program
Tuition packages start at $540.
In this information packed workshop you will learn how to transfer designs from printed material or personal imagery to metal surfaces with mylar transfers.
Create texture, re-create a favorite pattern or commemorate a special event on non-ferrous metals. Students will learn the tricks of the etching process and gather resources on materials you need to work with etching beyond the workshop. Individual attention and assistance will be given to help complete small projects in this week-long intensive class.
