Workshop Description:

Artist Flora Gare will introduce sculpting with wire; learning to trace, join and shape coloured copper wire, from a drawing into a beautiful bird sculpture. Start by creating the 2D frame outline from a drawing and develop it building layer upon layer of wire, to create your 3D bird. There will be a choice from over 15 different coloured wires as well as copper and brass mesh.

Materials:

Please bring an image of a bird and a small pair of pliers if you have them. All other materials included.
