FELTED FORMS IN SCULPTURE
Handmade felt is a wonderful, malleable medium that can form complex shapes, creating an eloquent and intriguing avenue for contemporary sculpture. In this course you will learn the fundamental felting techniques – constructing seamless three-dimensional forms using resist patterns, modelling solid felted shapes, and making felt around wire.

CONSTRUCTED SCULPTURES from FOUND OBJECTS
Anita Larkin has a special interest in the narrative associations that can be drawn from the found object and uses this as a beginning to develop sculptures. This workshop will explore various hand-tool methods of joining found objects together and lots of skills needed when working with diverse materials. This will include basic assemblage techniques, riveting, pinning, and using fillers. This is a weekend of alchemy, of animating the inanimate, of creating story and sculpture out of discarded objects.

TEXTILES AND FOUND OBJECTS
Have you got a collection of found objects and materials that you would like to make into engaging artworks? This class will reveal lots of wonderfully useful skills in making sculptures from collected objects. You will use simple and effective hand tool methods, how to use a dremel, screwing, pining, wiring, gluing, stitching, and riveting things together. You will learn how to weave, stitch, and thread directly into found objects, and use various ways of incorporating fabrics into sculptures. Wether you want to make a little animated creature, an odd-bod hybrid vehicle, or a thought provoking sculpture, this class will get you there. Discover what makes a sculpture constructed from junk much greater than the sum of its parts.
