November 8-14, 2009
Instructor: Kathryn Walmsley

Sculptors, carvers, dollmakers, and mixed-media artists can hone their skills or develop new ones in this exciting class. Choose a favorite animal (realistic or imaginary), develop an armature, and finish by applying Paper Clay details. The pull toys will be completed with paints, embellishments, and a fancy wagon with wood, pewter, or handmade wheels. Create a special, one-of-a-kind keepsake, telling a story with your unique creation. All are welcome.
