June 2018 Studio Workshops

June 2018 marks the second year of our return offering papier mache classes to those seeking something that challenges their creative nature and dedication to hard work. This June we feature three different project classes, this may be the last time some classes are offered in the studio.

Troll Workshop

Monday, June 11th, 6 pm – 9 pm

Monday, June 18th,  6 pm – 9 pm

Monday, June 25th,  6 pm – 9 pm

Monday, July 2nd,  6 pm – 9 pm

This will be the last troll workshop for the year, one of the most creative and fun projects offered at the studio.

The Troll Workshop will take you from armature construction to paint all within this four week class. You will work with traditional strip mache as well as sculpting with our custom made paper clay.

This class is starts with a very simple armature technique, yet gives you the chance to be as creative and complex as you desire.  Whether you are into Halloween or Trolls or just learning something new, this class will prove to be a fun and creative experience.

Owl Workshop

Tuesday, June 12th, 6 pm – 9 pm

(skipping a week due to 4th of July)

Tuesday, July 10th,  6 pm – 9 pm

The owl workshop is a winner as you design your very own owl using simple construction techniques.

You will work with traditional strip mache as well as sculpting with our custom made paper clay. This class will use my custom created templates guaranteeing a successful project.

Even though everyone uses the same techniques there is plenty of room to allow you to create a piece that reflects your individual style and vision.

Tombstone Workshop

Thursday, June 14th, 6 pm – 9 pm

Thursday June 21 st, 6 pm – 9 pm

Thursday, June 28th, 6 pm – 9 pm

Thursday, July 5th,  6 pm – 9 pm

The return of a class favorite,  and we introduce a new twist allowing you to create a “character tombstone,” a fun prop that will put a chill down anyone’s spine. This class will allow you to build whatever style of tombstone you desire.

NOTE: The tombstone project requires a large amount of materials so in addition to the class fee you will need to also supply a 5lb bag of white flour, your own hot glue sticks (approx. 25) and your own cardboard.

The classes require no previous papier mache experience, only a willingness to work hard and follow instructions.

The classes involve a lot of physical activity such as standing, lifting, bending and using your hands to sculpt clay.

All tools and materials are supplied.

(Exception is the tombstone workshop, see above)

The workshops are very casual and designed to allow anyone regardless of artistic talent to complete a finished piece.

Students must be at least 16 years old, if a younger child is interested they must be accompanied by a responsible adult.

Workshops start at 6 pm sharp with the studio opening 15 minutes prior if you wish to get situated and socialize.

Classes run until approximately 9 pm. (3 hours each)

Feel free to bring a drink and a snack, the studio will provide coffee, tea and hot chocolate.

**The cost is $100 per person which includes a total of 12 hours of studio time plus all materials.

If you would like to sign up for a workshop please send an email to stolloween@gmail.com with the name of the workshop in the subject line.
