Workshop description: This workshop is suitable for anyone including beginners or professionals seeking to play with wire as a material. Tutor Jen will take you through a step by step process to create your own aluminium and steel wire sculpture. You can create whatever you fancy, a representational form-animal or human figure, abstract or organic inspired forms or geometric decorative art. Your final piece can be a hanging, wall art or freestanding sculpture.
Aluminium wire is a delicious material to use, lightweight, flexible and easy to manipulate and can be cut and formed with your bare hands and with basic hand tools (such as pliers/wire cutters). It's just like drawing in the air. You can bring your own ideas along or work on your design in the class with tutor support. You can incorporate other materials into your design. All wire will be supplied and some extra materials but you can also bring your own, anything such a feathers, fabric, threads, embroidery, paper, string, beads, jewellery, anything that can be attached using wire.
Come along and make your own sculpture.
