Teaching Week Part 3: Pocosin Arts Cabin Fever Reliever

 In February I will teach a chain making class called "Innovating the Chain" at Pocosin Arts Cabin Fever Reliever, a four day, three night creative arts retreat.

"In this class students will be challenged to think beyond the traditional chain while learning chain making techniques and design using both wire and sheet metal. Students will examine and manipulate line, shape, repetition, pattern, and negative space to innovate and personalize their chains. Daily demonstrations and discussions will be complemented with projects and lots of one-on-one time."

I've been wanting to teach a chain making class so I am excited for this opportunity. I will be joined by Tara Locklear, a BFA metals student at East Carolina University, as my assistant. 

Other instructors include:

Mary Hettsmansperger - baskets
Kranitzky and Overstreet - mixed-media
Akira Satake - handbuilt vessels
Jane Wells Harrison - painting
Kirsten Stingle - figurative ceramics

CFR takes place February 16-19, 2012 in Bulls Bay, NC.

Thanks for reading.
