In this two day workshop we will use materials harvested almost exclusively from trees, such as birch bark, wood pulp and pigments from brazil wood and logwood to create wall pieces that tell the story of our link to land and family. Techniques taught and explored will include sculpting in clay, papier mache, painting and natural-dye printing.
