Pantyhose Sculpture Workshop with Katie Truk

WHEN: Saturday, May 19, 10 a.m.
TUITION:
$70; Member: $50 (plus $25 materials)

Get your pantyhose in a wad in this fun hands-on workshop run by artist Katie Truk.

Inspired by her artwork, which is made from pantyhose and wire, this workshop combines sculpture design and sewing to create truly unique works of art.

“Pantyhose is strong yet unique in color and composition," Truk notes. "Each has its own breaking point and beauty in complexity of layered strength and texture.”

Katie’s work will be on view beginning this weekend. The show's opening reception is Saturday, May 12 from 7 to 9 p.m.

Materials are provided, but students are encouraged to bring their own pantyhose if certain colors, patterns, or textures are desired for their finished sculpture.

This workshop is for adults and teens, ages 16 and up.
