MidSummer Maine 2018


Announcing the new MidSummer Maine Event, June 22,23 and 24.

Our Visual Taproot

This event will center on mark making, textile process and spontaneous improvisational creation. We will be experimenting with mark making tools and a wide variation of fiber, in woven and non-woven forms, to create a visual bank for reference. The main thrust is on experimenting, playing, looking, and learning, taking our imaginations and creativity to places we have never been before. Although the main focus is on process and experimentation, we will explore and exploit these experiences, in creating an array of works on paper and fiber culminating in two books.

On day one we will make paste paper, to cover a traditional coptic stitched sketchbook, for documenting our experiences over the three days, and beyond, followed by two days of unbridled experimentation. These creative experiments can be bound into a book of many fibers as a potential resource for further work, our visual taproot.

Next year, we will be building on these processes and more, going further in the exploration of mark, materials, and creation. I hope to share this experience with you.

Class is limited to ten but a second event covering the same material will be offered  July 20,21 and 22 as well.

The three day workshop is $150. and there is  a materials fee of $75. Lunch will be served all three days and there will be a dinner Saturday night here for $10.  I have 3 rooms available to stay in for each event for $50. a night.
