Making a Wire Small Bird
August 1, 2020 at 13:30 - 16:00
Chris Moss will be leading these half day sculpture courses where you will learn how to make a wire small bird to take home. These sculptures will be made from galvanised wire, so they will be able to be kept outside without going rusty. Materials and tools will be supplied. Please wear practical clothes (no delicate textiles).
For the last seven summers Chris Moss has run sell out workshops here at Stillingfleet.
We are delighted that, due to popular demand, Chris will be returning in 2020. The workshops will be suitable both for beginners to wire sculpting and to her many fans who will have the opportunity to make some new designs.
Chris uses both new and recycled metal materials to create her sculptures that are mainly of wild and domestic animals and birds. Each of her works are an original study of anatomy and behaviour and she gives a sense of life and energy to her subjects, ranging from small birds to life-size dogs and horses. This is the approach she will be sharing with course participants.
All courses include entry to the garden plus welcome coffee and biscuits. Unless stated, materials are provided and you will leave each workshop with plenty of reference information.
Please note that workshop fees cannot be refunded if cancelled less than 7 days prior to date of workshop.
