Lead by renowned tier and sculptor Val Kropiwnicki, this small, intimate hands-on tying event is geared toward people with tying experience and a desire to learn about the artistic side of tying. Participants will be challenged to drop their notions of following patterns and instead, learn an approach to fly design that incorporates pure aesthetics through a developed understanding of the elements of art and principles of design as they apply to creative fly tying. Participants will explore color and copositonal theory, brainstorm and sketch fly concepts centered around handmade hooks supplied by Val, select feathers, floss and tying materials that augment their designs, and learn tying techniques to help bring their creative tying ideas to life.
The class will take place at AMFF in Manchester, VT.
