I want to step through the door full of curiosity, wondering....
When it's over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was the bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

Mary Oliver


Join us for an adventurous week of mixed media exploration in a generative place where you can
allow yourself to take a risk. Our well equipped studios are set up for working with wood, print,
paper, paint, metal, cloth and papier maché. We offer technique demos and individual problem solving.
 
Focus on one technique and/or format in depth, or sample and mix your media. We’ll discuss strategies for continuity, mechanisms for change, issues of scale, portability and presentation.

 

Remembering!
Forgetting?
Blink and wonder…
What a wild ride we are on,
Down the river of time,
Or swinging up the ladder of years.
First Car, Kiss, Job, Lie, Love, Enchantment…

The Oiseaux Sisters are two mixed-media artists whose work incorporates humor, movement and metaphor. The materials they use include paper, tin, clay, cloth, carved and painted wood, and found objects. They have created a series of figurative, often biographical or mythological figures/ cupboards which range from small to larger than life size as well as many other figurative pieces which tell stories. The Oiseaux Sisters have made and marketed one of a kind craft as well as exhibiting in many solo and group shows around the country.
