There’s still a chance to grab a spot in one of the great classes going on as part of the Summer of Making at the Pacific Northwest College of Art in Portland, Oregon.
Summer of Making explores the confluence of art, design and craft practices while fostering a community of makers. This summer, we bring together the PNCA mission of excellence and innovation in arts education with the flourishing Portland DIY ethos of creating and community building.
The program features a weekend quilting and fabric arts workshop with internationally known quilter, textile designer and artist Denyse Schmidt. Additionally, there are a number of four-day workshops on art and craft focusing on textile art and design and evening classes on using new media to discuss, distribute and document art.
Instructors include Susan Beal, Jess Beebe, Diane Gilleland, Kim Lakin, Brenda Mallory and Sarah Schlosser-Moon, all experts in the disciplines they teach and all are engaged with current ideas and practices in their fields.
