Life-sized Sculpted Flowers: Orchid and Poppy
Thursday, 05/16, 9:00am – 5:00pm, W209, Sheridan College
All skill levels welcome!
In this one-day workshop you will learn leather sculpting techniques and create life-like, three- dimensional orchid and poppy flowers using only your hands and a few basic tools. Each student will be instructed in manipulating the leather to make natural looking flowers and using water-based dyes and acrylic paint to bring them to life! At the end of the workshop, the flowers will be assembled and can be made into pins or ornaments.
Materials to Bring: Ball end modeling tool, stylus, awl, X-acto knife or scalpel, safety skiver or skiving blade, cutting mat, spray bottle for water (if possible). Annie will have extra tools available.
Annie began working with leather while in art school getting a degree in painting. Her leather masks and other work have been featured on television for Once Upon a Time, Z Nation, and Gotham, as well as in many photo shoots and theater productions all over the world.
