The BIRDS

mixed media sculptures

A two-day class using simple assemblage sculpture techniques to spark your imagination. We will work with sticks and wire, fabric, batting, paper mâché, and polymer clay to create quirky birds.

Week 1: Construct the sculptural shape and attitude of your bird. Steps include: shaping the body of your bird using wired and fabric, adding legs to the base, forming a polymer clay beak and applying paper mâché to the fabric body. Your bird will spend the week in the studio drying.

Week 2: Embellish your assembled bird with paint, fabrics, beads and found objects. You will leave with a unique sculpture and some assemblage techniques you can use in your creative life.
