Murmuration Master Workshop
Students will create interesting individual “Starlings” that make up a Murmuration using many new and innovative techniques, some of which incorporate inexpensive household tools, plus exciting polymer products new to our Polymer World. Creating the Starlings will involve such enjoyable processes as silk screening, carving, and layering, among others, with each performed in novel and inventive ways. Exploration and assemblage of the Murmuration pieces. Students will design, arrange, and place their Starlings into the formation they desire (with guidance and instruction, of course!), creating a cohesive whole. This piece can be a standalone ‘sculpture’, brooch pin, pendant, or other decorative object…the student gets to decide! Students will be instructed on backing the piece (including instruction for a professionally set pinback), using my nifty trick for quickly, precisely, and efficiently finishing off the back of the creation.
