Walking sticks, especially those that
incorporate faces or symbols, can transport one into a world of
imagination and adventure. While Maureen can't guarantee a
magical journey to class participants, she can teach you how to
use Apoxie Sculpt, polymer clay, fibers, beads and charms to
turn a purchased or found walking stick into a one-of-a-kind
work of art.
embellishments are designed so that some will be incorporated
into the body of the stick while others will be removable.
Imagine having a necklace and earrings that double as sculpture
when you're not wearing them!
The walking stick can also be created
as a shorter talking stick or wall embellishment.
The class will include basic
sculpting techniques for creating symbols, animals and faces.
Students do not have to have previous sculpting experience.
Face, hand and feet molds will be available for those who wish
to use them.
Methods will be demonstrated for
giving shape and form to personal symbols and metaphors. The end
results will each be unique, telling the students' stories
through their choices of subject, color, shapes and symbols. Let
the adventure begin!
