Melissa Jay Craig knows paper, and sculpture and dying. She came to WSW from Chicago in 2009 as an NEA Studio Resident, and worked on a huge installation made up of hundreds of little cup shaped, sort of demi-tasse sized, sculptural forms. This piece is all about the fiber -kozo, and fragile as it looks is sturdy as can be. As a rule she does not use traditional armatures for her work. That’s why she is coming back to teach her fabulously popular Unusual 3D Paper Techniques class during our Summer Arts Institute.
