"being (t) here Masterclass with India Flint"
August 22-28, 2018

India will be traveling to Italy from her farm in the deep south of Australia to share her wandering spirit and creative gifts with us. She is best known for developing the highly distinctive eco-print, an ecologically sustainable plant-based printing process that gives brilliant color to cloth. With 20 plus years working with plant dyes, her textile practice embraces art, theatre, science, and fashion. Represented in both private and museum collections in the U.S.A., Europe and Australia, she has undertaken costume commissions for Leigh Warren & Dancers as well as the West Australian Ballet. Using dyes of the leaves, roots, and flowers to color cloth, yarn and paper, she continues her journey into botanical alchemy.

"Found – Stitch – Paint Workshop"
October 22-28, 2018

This is a hands on, experimental workshop with a strong emphasis on using found materials and inventive applications of textile and mixed media processes as part of the exploration of developing a ‘creative language’. The principles of Wabi Sabi come into play as part of the process of exploring connection to place as you work with your found materials. Taking inspiration from both material and place, the workshop explores the use of layers in found textiles and papers to create folding forms and objects inspired by the land and landscape. Paint, color, collage and stitch will transform the ordinary into the extraordinary as new surfaces emerge and your pieces unfold as you journey, observe and create.
Location: Colle Val d’ Elsa, Italy
Instructor: Cas Holmes
Cost: $3,625 Shared, $4,195 Single
