Things will be a bit Batty in the studio this May as we host our new Upside Down Hanging Bat Workshop.
Bats are the perfect touch to any Halloween themed event whether a lavish party or an all out yard display and the new Upside Down Hanging Bat Workshop allows you the chance to build an impressive prop that will creep out your guests. (Although they are kind of cute).
Tuesday Evening Upside Down Bat Workshop (Total 12 Hours of studio time)
Tuesday, May 14th, 6PM – 9PM
Tuesday, May 21st, 6PM – 9PM
Tuesday, May 28th, 6PM – 9PM
Tuesday, June 4th, 6PM – 9PM
The first night of class we will design and build the cardboard armature for your inverted friend.
Second night of class we will utilize traditional papier mache as we apply strips of paste soaked newspaper over the cardboard form.
Third night of class will involve sculpting with homemade paper clay giving your new friend final form and texture.
Fourth and final night is all about paint as you finish your bat and take them home.
Students will be required to supply their own stick from which the bat will hang. Stick not needed until the second session.
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.
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 the published time with the studio opening 15 minutes prior if you wish to get situated and socialize.
Classes run until approximately three hours each.
Feel free to bring a drink and a snack, coffee is available at the studio.
This workshop requires a lot of hot glue work, a lightweight pair of work gloves is highly recommended.
The cost is $100 per person which includes a total of 12 hours of studio time plus all materials.
