Stencils with Gorellaume Riocreux

In this workshop students will learn about stencils: choosing the image, planning the stencil, cutting (including safety measures). They will also learn how to use the stencil on various mediums (such as t-shirts, vinyl records, pieces of fabric, objects, etc).Eventually, a more complex version of this program can be run: learning to cut a 2 or 3 layer stencil, and /or creating a larger stencil.

IMPORTANT : Cutting stencils requires a long time. It’s the hardest part of this workshop while using the stencils goes quickly. Please keep that in mind when applying for this workshop.

Gorellaume Riocreux

Guillaume is a French artist born in 1978. He graduated from art school in Strasbourg, earned his teaching certification and then worked for 10 years as an art teacher in Paris, while also pursuing his artistic career.
Figurative drawing is the foundation of his work, which he applies to different mediums such as ink drawing, watercolors, murals, stenciling, bone carving, and tattooing. His firm anchoring in figurative drawing has allowed him to branch out into various projects. He enjoys trying new techniques and mediums and finds that each one informs and develops the others. He has produced artwork for several record labels and has also participated in independent music shows as well as art exhibitions, done live painting events, and shown his work in a variety of contexts which has allowed him to take his practice in unexpected and new directions.
