Formline design workshops scheduled in Juneau, other SE communities
Sealaska Heritage Institute has organized a series of formline design workshops in Juneau and nine other Southeast communities in an effort to bring a revitalized focus to formline, the basis of Northwest Coast art.
Juneau will host the first workshop this weekend, Saturday and Sunday, Jan. 12 and 13, at the University of Alaska Southeast in Hendrickson, 206. It will be led by Lance Twitchell and will run from 12-5 p.m. both days. Registration is required and space is limited.
Formline refers to the complex designs, such as ovoids and split Us, that are the underlying components of Northwest Coast art.
