Instructor: Geoffrey N. Gorman

October 3-7

Experiment with innovative and intuitive ways of creating a variety of structures and forms using organic, found, and recycled materials. You are invited to think about shapes and forms that hold particular interest and bring these ideas to the workshop. You will be asked to bring some of your own favorite cast off materials and using unusual techniques to overcome construction challenges, everyone will complete a variety of forms. We will look at selecting and designing pedestals and stands and presentation for finished artwork. We will also learn how to make patinated and painted tin to add age and color to various forms. This class is perfect for beginners seeking an introduction to creating curious objects as well as intermediate and advanced participants wishing to reach the next level and break out of their comfort zone.
