Over the past 8 1/2 years, we have striven to bring you some of the best and brightest artist/instructors available to Cabin Fever and Master Class Camp.  Cabin Fever, in its 9th year is no different and once again, a premier event offering workshops from:  LISA PAVELKA, MAUREEN CARLSON, DAYLE DOROSHOW, NANCY ENNIS, LISA HANEY, LINDLY HAUNANI, ANKE HUMPERT, DOREEN KASSEL, ROBERT LIU, JANA LEHMANN, ANN and KAREN MITCHELL, NAN ROCHE, LYNNE ANN SCHWARZENBERG, and EUGENA TOPINA.  Registration continues for all attendees – click here to register.

Some have asked about the change in format.  The fact is, we listened to what our attendees were requesting – longer classes from more instructors.  The new format offers more full-day workshops and fewer 4-hour workshops with additional class time at a lower fee – bringing attendees more bang for their buck!  If you have questions about the format, just write us – we’ll answer your inquiries as quickly as possible.

Lisa Pavelka, who has brought the polymer community many useful tools and techniques, will be teaching several workshops and will be honored with the Creative Pioneer and Innovator Award for her contributions over the years. Last year’s honoree, Maureen Carlson, will present the award and will also be teaching workshops at the event.  Click here to find out more on the workshops being offered.

BUILDING YOUR WORK FROM POLYMER SCRAP AND METAL

STILL TIME TO REGISTER FOR MASTER CLASS CAMP IN JULY.

Eugena Topina, originally from Russia, has used her science background in planning and creating new and innovative multi-functional tools for use with polymer and other media.  The stamps, created from scrap polymer and small strips of metal, are exquisitely detailed with simple, elegant lines.  She does not teach very often and we are lucky to have her living here in Maryland.

This will be her first time teaching at Master Class Camp and she is thrilled to be among some of the other talented instructors.  Take a look at some of her other work and you will see the value in learning from her.

Workshop descriptions can be found here and online registration can be done here.

 





MCC 2015: USING METAL STRIPS TO CREATE IMPRESSIONS AND SCRAP TO CREATE ART

TOPINA - STAMP-ALL POSSIBILITIES

TOPINA – STAMP-ALL POSSIBILITIES

How many stamps to you have in your collection? I have so many, unfortunately scattered in different places – it would be difficult to count them all.  However, we all know that stamps can be used in a multitude of ways when working with polymer.  They are not only used for making an impression on a piece of paper. They can be used for mokume gane, Sutton Slice, and faux enamel techniques.

If’ you are at all an experimenter, then taking Eugena Topina’s workshop is one you may want to consider.  Look closely at the photo above and you will see that she’s used the same stamp for each sample – just amazing!   She’s worked years to perfect it and if her work is any example, she’s done it well.  Making handmade designer stamps, including extensive detail, has become one of her signature trademarks. Join her and begin making your own unique one-of-a-kind stamps.  Updated workshop information is here.  Register online for Eugena’s workshop here.  For clarification: There is no wire involved in the making of my stamps. They are made using scrap polymer clay and metal strips. I will share the source of the materials and explain how to make the stamps during the class.

BENZON – TRASH-TO-TREASURE PENDANT

Jana Roberts Benzon has been in high demand and has traveled the world, teaching her graphic caning and organic techniques to many.  She comes full circle at MCC 2015 and will be teaching how to take your abundance of colorful scraps and turn them into beautiful treasures.  She, too, has worked many hours to perfect this technique for her students and is looking forward to sharing another innovative find.   Updated workshop information is here.  Register online for Jana’s workshop here.
