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 exciting new ways to distress wood & metal surfaces, I will teach you how to make beautiful clay faces, and how to make a mold of just about anything.
