Workshop “Random Precision
Tuesday, September 13, 9-4 pm at ACAD

Using a personal collection of materials with strong linear qualities, participants will develop an individual vocabulary of three-dimensional line. This provides the essential components of this challenging workshop to be used in an exploration of stitch, dept, translucency, illusion and structure.

This is a rare opportunity for individuals outside the ACAD degree program to work with an artist of this stature. Fibre artists, sculptors, mixed media artists and those interested in jumpstarting the creative process would enjoy working with Michael Brennand-Wood in this one day workshop.

‘Random Precision’ is open to the public through ACAD Extended Studies (contact 403.284.7640) The cost of the workshop is $159.00 plus GST.
