Description

Join us for a new and fun workshop at MillHouse.  Artist Joyce Harlow Hill is renown for her assemblage art.  What is assemblage art?  Look around your house or in an antique mall for really cool, old "stuff".  Bring the pieces with you and we will create pieces of art from them that will be unique to you and a great conversation piece!

Note: Joyce will also bring some pieces she has collected through the years for us to use in our art.

 

Class price: $45 

About Joyce: 

In the 1940’s on my grandfather’s farm in Kentucky there were six siblings, 3 boys and 3 girls. After the Depression, our source of toys for play was from the junk yard not far from our farm. We would take my brother’s Radio Flyer wagon and bring back discarded metal, wood and glass. With these materials we would construct our playhouses.

As an “Outsider Artist” I began my journey with clay fired in a small kiln to make “Little People” which were combined with found objects to tell a story. As an adult I was drawn to flea markets and antique stores for my constructions of an imaginary world.

To this day, I still see the world through my childhood eyes. My love of junk and discarded items carried over to my art with my assemblages of metal, wood and clay. When I look at “junk” I do not see what items “were” but rather what they could become.
