Join Jasper Community Arts for a Brush Making Workshop with visiting professional artist, David Gamble on Saturday, February 3rd , 2024 at the Thyen-Clark Cultural Center.
Participants will have a chance to create their very own one-of-a-kind brushes used for all techniques of painting and clay glazing. During this morning session, participants will learn how to assemble brushes using deer and squirrel tails with handles selectively chosen and cut from bamboo. With the one-of-a-kind brushes that are created, participants will have the opportunity to customize their technique and style, along with a unique surface decoration.
