I call my tin figurative assemblages “Eeeps” and I have been making these for the past 15 years. Each year they seem to grow, change and morph into something different and this year is no exception!

In this inspiring workshop we will be using an empty tin for our base, as we do in my “Faux Etching” workshop, only this time we are using completely different materials and techniques.

In the morning we will begin by using a two part clay to create one of a kind faces for our Eeeps. I will demonstrate a quick & easy way to make a mold of just about anything and I will have my hand made molds available for you to use.

From there we will move on to leaf printing. Leaf printing on metal was a happy accident that I discovered after using metal instead of tiles to hold eco dyed paper. I spent months perfecting this technique and I finally have it down to where I can teach it without using pots of boiling water, since hotels tend to frown on this! We will attach our favorite leaf print to the cover of our Eeep, and you will have extra to take home for other projects.

The rest of the afternoon will be spent constructing unique figurative sculptures using the metal that we altered, our new faces and found objects. While working on the sculpture, we will cover basic cold connection methods as well as composition & design.

In the evening we will work on the inside of our sculptures, creating a small book or whatever else you can imagine inside the belly of your Eeep.

You will leave with 2 figurative sculptures and extra materials to create a third at home.

Your final Eeeps will be approximately 12” x 6” after adding found objects. The tin itself measures 4” x 1 1/2”.

$30 kit fee includes 2 tins, dowels, wire, nuts & bolts, found objects, eco dyed fabric for insert, leaves, clear coat, glazes, as well as tools and other consumables.

You will need to bring some supplies.
