In this workshop you will learn how to make an eclectic free standing figurative assemblage, starting with only two pieces of wood & a few of your favorite treasures! You will learn the nuts & bolts of assemblage, composition,  cold connecting, and how to unite found objects to create a cohesive piece of art. You will learn a cool new way to distress wood surfaces, I will teach you how to make my clay faces, and how to make a mold of just about anything.
We will drill, sand, carve, paint, sculpt, problem solve, punch & distress...but most important, we will have a blast! Breathe new life into your found treasures and join us for a fun day of constructing these awesome, one of a kind assemblages!

1 hand made free standing base,1 hand made clay face, distressing medium, patina, most tools & all hardware
