Event Description Wet felting is a process of creating an artwork through intentionally tangling and matting wool together involving friction, fat, and heat. This transformative process takes layers of soft fragile fibers and renders them into imagery, patterns or objects that are strong and durable, but also soft and flexible. In this workshop, learn the process of wet felting by creating textile pieces that use imagery inspired by transformative and enduring aspects of identity.

Event Description Join Oriana Poindexter for an interactive cyanotype workshop. Learn this early alternative photographic process and use organic materials to create your own cyanotype prints using photo chemistry techniques first developed in the 1840s. This workshop will teach you the fundamentals of the cyanotype process, its history, and will culminate with each participant creating three original cyanotype prints - usually something frame worthy. The first portion of the workshop will involve an introduction, demonstration, and selection of materials, and the second portion will be a printing session. This workshop is part of the programming for the 2023 Medium Festival of Photography. Location: Perspectives Space, 555 2nd Street #suite 1 Encinitas, CA 92024.

Event Description press release url (copy paste in browser) https://conta.cc/3ZvbI7p Together the artists explore their experience of the female body through a lens of both fecundity and loss, of excess and containment. Scale and material play a pivotal role in both artists’ work, defying expectations with installations that confront and engage the viewer’s body. Both of them mothers, the title Tether alludes to the sensation of being inextricably tethered to the body of others — to their children certainly but also to partners, to the varying social expectations of artist / mother / woman. Tether also examines their technical processes: Updegraff merges a multitude of materials together in her sculptures, using the delicacy of substances like thread and paper, then shackling them with industrial touches of cement, wood or metal. Carter works in a similar way with imagery, building up layers of images and melding them within her paintings, tethering them all back into one space onto one surface.
