C205 - Guardians of the Discarded
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.
