Join us in our studio located at 716 George Street in Midland Michigan as we spend four evenings creating some fun papier mache Christmas Characters. Make a Reindeer, a Penguin or a Snowman…the choice is yours.
The Christmas Character Workshop will take you from armature construction to paint all within the four week class. You will work with traditional strip mache as well as sculpting with our custom made paper clay. Everyone will start with the same shaped, 16 inch tall armature then work to bring their character to life. This class offers a huge variety of options, choose from a half dozen methods to create the eyes and when it comes to accessorizing the choices are almost endless.
This class requires 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 you 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 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.
