Would you like to learn how to make your very own bird sculptures out of paper clay?  Did you know that you can create sculptures out of clay without needing to fire them in a kiln?! It is true!!

Join Kathy Lewis in this two and a half day workshop where she will teach you how to create several different types of birds!  You will learn how to make a variety of bird legs and bird armatures.  You will leave this workshop with a very good understanding of how to make a variety of birds unique to your own style of art!

Workshop Schedule:

 

Friday, Day 1:

  • 9:00 – 3:30 - Workshop  
    • We jump right in creating legs for a crow or raven. Before lunch we will complete at least one armature. After lunch we will apply clay to the armature and we hope to complete this phase of the bird so that it will have time to dry for day three of our workshop. We will begin our owl armature, time permitting.

 

  Saturday, Day 2:

  • 9:00 – 3:30 - Workshop
    • You will learn more than one way to create a face. We will have some fun with colorful modeling clay that does not dry out for practice. I will demo how to create a people face in case you ever want to make a bird with a different face at home (or this afternoon). We will complete the owl armature and perhaps have time to apply clay. We will take a look at how to create some adornments for birds such as spiked collars, little birdies, beanies and crowns. If our birds have dried enough we will sand them for painting on Day three (otherwise we sand next morning).

 

Sunday, Day 3:

  • 9:00 – 12:00 - Workshop
    • This day is devoted to painting our birds. I begin with a reminder demo and then you will work on your birdies until they are finished. I will then discuss how to fix breakages and make corrections, even after the bird has dried fully. Other than wire legs and the internal armature that is made of paper and sometimes foil, my birds are made completely out of air dry clay. You will learn that any bird can be made into a wonderful little creature that you will love! I plan to get all of us to the end of a creation (maybe two!) because it is the way you will learn NOT to ever give up on a clay creation too early. Some of my ugliest in the beginning have been my most beloved critters in the end. I can’t wait to tell you all about them!
