Join us for the Virtual Artist Talk with Visitin Artist, Sarah Austin, leading the workshop “Artist Brushmaking: From Tool to Treasure” which will explore the transformational journey of a tool becoming a cherished piece of functional art. This workshop delves into the fascinating world of brushmaking, empowering you to craft a variety of brushes using natural materials like hair, fur, and fibers. You’ll learn to source and harvest these materials, and even utilize locally-sourced bamboo for beautiful, personalized brush handles. This workshop is particularly enriching for ceramic artists, offering the opportunity to explore the exciting possibilities of clay through the lens of custom brushmaking.
