$ 180  

Popcorn or peanuts. Tents and high-wire acts. Time at the circus is FUN.
During this workshop attendees will make a forged metal artist book that is over the Big Top!
Hammering soft, up-cycled metal into pages, and using actual hinges to “bind” the pages together, the results are pure eye-candy.
Techniques you learn include:
• “Forging” without the heat
• Mixed-media assemblage
• What can constitute an embellishment (hint: it is if you say it is)
• At least 3 ways to add embellishments to the book that don’t involve glue

Materials Fee $25 paid at beginning of class includes:

Most materials, including hardware, circus-themed embellishments and tools, will be provided

Supplies Needed  to bring for Class:

A hammer
Crop-A-Dile hole and eyelet punch
