Alexis Boz and Greg Hall met in Phoenix, AZ, working in the printing industry. When fused glass hit the art scene in the ‘90s, they were mesmerized and developed their own design sense that leans to modernism and their love of organic textures and patterns. Their work will be on exhibit at The Flying Pig throughout the 2011 season.
On July 23, The Flying Pig will host a workshop entitled “Silk Scarf Dyeing with Shelley Ryan.” The workshop will combine the skills of recognizing edible landscape plants and using them artistically as culinary and artful ingredients.
Ryan, a host of Wisconsin Public Television’s “Wisconsin Gardener,” will demonstrate how to collect and use botanical pickings as dyes for silk scarves. Between morning and afternoon classes, students will be invited to taste von Steihl wine and enjoy a selection of dishes featuring ingredients used as dyes.
Workshops will be held from 10 am – 12 pm and 1 – 3 pm. von Stiehl wine and food tasting will be shared by both classes from 12 – 1 pm. Each class is limited to 20 students and costs $45. For more information or to register call 920.487.9902.
The Flying Pig Gallery and Greenspace, open daily from 9 am – 6 pm, is located at N6975 Highway 42, two miles south of Algoma. For more information visit http://www.theflyingpig.biz.
