Birds on a wire - creating small sculptures in Derbyshire
Next promoted date: Sunday 19th November - 3 places available. Friday 16th February 2024 - 3 places available. Join me at The Slipper Studio on the edge of the Peak District for a relaxing and creative day. Fine and flexible wire is a lovely material to work with, enabling you to create characterful objects, with a drawn-like quality to them and all without causing harm to your hands. You will learn how to create a range of small and decorative pieces of sculpture, which will take pride of place in your home. We will aim to create 3 beautiful outcomes, exploring joining techniques, wrapping, shaping and sculpting wire, with a distinctly bird shaped theme. This workshop will suit folks with experience of different creative processes and techniques.
