Advanced Etegami Class



Advanced Etegami: Beyond the Basics | Nancy Bea Miller | Saturday, March 17, 1:00 - 4:00 pm | Member: $34.50 | Non-Member: $39.00

This will be my first time leading this particular etegami class! Thanks in advance to the folks who've already signed up, apparently happy to be my guinea pigs. 💗My plan is for us all to stretch our etegami muscles a little, and we'll have fun, whatever the outcome. Remember, the motto of etegami is: Clumsy is fine! It's good to be clumsy! 😊

Class is Saturday March 17, 2018 1-4 pm
Register right up to the starting time.

Description 
This class is geared for people who already have some experience making etegami or who have at least already taken Intro to Etegami. Students will be encouraged to share their favorite etegami techniques and to bring favorite etegami they may have received or created. We will discuss various styles of etegami, and try out collage, 3D, and other alternative materials. Mounting and laminating will be addressed, as well as various methods of display and presentation. Envelope making and information about International Etegami Calls will be discussed and shared. More than anything, this class will be a fun gathering for those already bitten by the etegami bug to meet other local enthusiasts and discuss the details of their beloved art form, have fun making etegami together, and hopefully learning something new along the way!

I will be leading an Intro to Etegami mini workshop this coming Saturday February 10, 2018, at the Main Line Art Center in Haverford, Pennsylvania. I am told it is nearly fully enrolled, but I am pretty sure we could squeeze in another person or two. If you are interested, don't delay! The more the merrier.

This is a quick, fun, three-hour introduction to the art of etegami. You can click here to read an excellent account of what one of these workshops is like, blogged by a talented artist who took the class a few years ago. People who have taken previous etegami workshops, or are already etegami adepts, are also welcome to attend, but may be more interested in taking next month's short workshop, Continuing with Etegami, which will be held on March 17th.

PAFA Etegami Workshop

On December 2, 2017  I was happy to lead an Etegami Workshop through the continuing education department at PAFA, the Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts. I was very lucky to get a great group of students and we had a lot of fun and made a lot of excellent etegami. People learned to carve their own hanko (signature stamps) as well. A great day and a pleasure to be back at PAFA!

This studio space was absolutely perfect for group etegami.
