Pictorial Stringing: A Contemporary Approach with Steve Latta August 6 - 7, 2022

about this workshop

Stringing has a rich history in both urban and rural forms, especially during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. Craftsmen combined arcs and straight lines to create often elaborate patterns that adorned all forms of furniture. This is NOT that class! During our two days together, those techniques fall to the side as students will explore all new techniques and forms pretty much limited only by the imagination. Floral patterns, animal forms, and the human body are a few of the applications that will be discussed. The first day, participants will follow a series of guided exercises to gain an understanding of the basic techniques. Sunday, however, students will kick around ideas and execute a unique panel of their own design.
