Wrapping Wild: Making Animals Out of Recycled Materials
October 20, 2019 – October 26, 2019
Using coiling, wrapping, sewing and binding during this workshop students learn to make animals or other sculptural forms using found materials that they see in the world around them. The instructor will share techniques she has developed to create skeletons, bodies, fur and skin and encourage participants to develop their own methods. Bring to class your bits and pieces of fabric, the yarn on the top shelf, and all the great stuff you’ve been saving for a rainy day. Open to all skill levels.
COURSE FEE: $600
