Join us for a virtual crafting meet-up and sneak preview of Crafts Abyss, a video series that explores the fuzzy boundaries of the world-wide-web.
Inspired by deep dives down the rabbit hole into online craft tutorials, Artist Studios resident Rhonda Weppler and artist Trevor Mahovsky evoked elements of DIY and ASMR videos to create the surreal and meditative world of Crafts Abyss.
During this virtual crafting bee inspired by Crafts Abyss Episode 2: Monarch, join the creators to discuss the making of the video series, share your own home craft (finished or in progress, paper or otherwise!), and learn how to create a spooky paper viewfinder based on 19th-century folding paper dioramas. The artists will also reference paper jewelry pieces in MAD’s permanent collection by artist Wendy Ramshaw. A printable template for the spooky folding paper diorama will be sent to participants in advance.
