I call my tin figurative assemblages “Eeeps” and I have been making these for the past 15 years. Each year they seem to grow, change and morph into something different and this year is no exception!
Materials Fee $25 paid at beginning of class includes:
2 tins, dowels, wire, nuts & bolts, found objects, hand made eco dyed paper and fabric for insert, leaves, molds, stains, needles and thread, spray fixative glazes, as well as tools and other consumables.
Supplies Needed to bring for Class:
Please read the supply list now and collect your supplies early. You may have to order some things online, please allow plenty of time for this. I ask that you bring these exact supplies to class because I have tested them and know they will work for this specific project. I will never ask you to bring something that we won’t use in class. If you have trouble finding anything, or if you have any questions, please contact me at least one week prior to class at firstname.lastname@example.org.
