Master Class with Christine
Christine Mauersberger, Instructor
Dates: Thursday, October 6th – Sunday, October 9th, 2022 (9am-4pm)
If you have taken a workshop from me, then this class is for you. This workshop was created in response from previous attendees of my workshops who wanted to spend time working with me on their own individual projects. If you have not taken a workshop from me, but are a self-starter and have ideas you want to experience before purchasing the tools, then this may be for you, too!
I will have the studio set up with an indigo pot, geli plates, inks, and brayers, a sewing machine, and prepared cyanotype paper and fabric and cyanotype chemicals to paint onto your own paper or fabric. The class fee (arranged when we discuss your project once you have registered) covers the supplies and my attention to you. If you know me, you know that I am generous with what I provide. But in the case where you try a technique and want to spend all your time with it, I will have extra supplies for purchase.
How will this workshop be different from the Binding Time workshop? The difference is that there is no lesson-plan for similar group end-product. We will have short group discussions about how to talk about your artwork, whether it is for selling it or for entering shows. And you will have in-depth one-on-one private time with me to review your work. Please bring a small collection of work to the workshop.
This may sound like a lot of work for 4 days and it is. The cool part is that you will be following your heart and I will support you. Once you enroll, I will send a note to you to set up either a zoom call or phone call to discuss your ideas. We can dive into what you are working on to prepare for a successful workshop catered for you.
