Sense Of Place: Making Places, Boxes, Metal And More

October 11, 2020 – October 17, 2020

Mary Hettmansperger

In this workshop students will create box structures that will be transformed through metalwork, collage, encaustic and embellishment into personal places to hold artwork, found and personal items. Using compartments, cages, doors, windows and utilizing many alternative techniques you will define the spaces. Participants will use metalwork, weaving, paints, fiber, clay, concrete, encaustic, collage, repurposing and many surface applications as they create their boxes. Students may also make jewelry, sculpture or other small works of art to put into their boxes. Open to all skill levels.
