STOLLOWEEN RAMBLINGS January Online Papier Mache Workshops

January Online Papier Mache Workshops

Happy New Year!

This month I am running two Online Papier Mache Workshops, an Advanced Gargoyle Workshop and a Pumpkin Workshop.

January is the perfect time to take a class and start building for October of 2017 because a lot of us are stuck inside during the cold winter months and starting early gives you plenty of time to create the Halloween display of your dreams.

Start the New Year right and learn a new skill and gain a new hobby.

This is an Advanced Workshop meaning that you need to have taken one of my previous workshops or you have a solid understanding of papier mache including using paste, clay as well as dry brush painting techniques.

This workshop will teach you how to build a classic style Gargoyle or Grotesque using nothing more than recycled cardboard, newspaper, scap plywood and papier mache. Each element is such as the head, body and wings are constructed separately then assembled into a very cool finished prop.

This is a work intensive project but well worth the time. You will learn a great many techniques to build complex armatures from cardboard as well as incorporating other mediums into the build.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact me.

NOTE: This workshop requires cellulose fiber insulation to make the paper clay used in the process. Please make sure you have access to this material before registering.

Price: $100.00 USD per person.

*Please note each class is limited to six students.
