During this workshop, you'll learn basic wire techniques and tools and discover how to use them to create your own scribbly wire wren, sparrow or robin. You'll have the opportunity to develop your ideas further during the day and with Chris' support and encouragement, create your own handmade flock of small birds, decorated with coloured wire and other accessories. The skills acquired on the day will enable you to continue to explore your creative ideas at home. This workshop is suitable for complete beginners.
Materials are provided but please bring:
Protective clothing or an apron as wire can be hard on textiles.
Photos of your favourite small bird and any additional small bird photos you may want to work from.
