Hey folks -- I need your advice!
I'd like to teach a small group workshop here at the studio this summer or fall, but I'm not sure when would be the best time.
I've set up a poll at the blog. For those of you reading this on Laf'n Bear's blogspot page, the poll is in the right hand column, third item down.
If you are reading this on Facebook or an email version of the blog, please take a second to click through to the blog to participate in the poll.
Of course your comments are welcome too, either at the blog or on Laf'n Bear's Facebook page. Or, send me an email, it's always good to hear from you!
A bit about the workshop, "From Wire to Whinny"; this is a three-day workshop usually held on a Friday, Saturday, Sunday. I have gotten some feedback that four days would be a better match to the copious amount of material that we cover, but I know that getting time off can be a challenge for folks, especially when you have to add in travel days.
Students will learn the basics of equine anatomy, how to best utilize references, form an armature, and then apply clay to create a sculpture.
"Wire to Whinny" is open to all levels of experience. The workshop is as much about sharing ideas, learning to analyze various references and how to then translate that information into three dimensions as it is about creating an object. These techniques can be used to create a sculpture of *any* animal.
Workshop tuition includes armature supplies, clay, and an extensive workbook. At $345.00 it's a tremendous value! Class size will be limited to six students, so you're sure to get lots of individualized attention.
Please help me figure out if there's a good spot on the calendar this year for a workshop. Thanks so much! ~ Lynn
