Instructor: Craig M. Black
June 5–7, 2020 (Friday–Sunday, 9:30am–4:30pm)
All levels

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, this class has been cancelled.

The main concept will be to go out onto the beaches around Mendocino and gather a large bag or box of things that may have washed up. For example: driftwood, shells, broken ceramic, metals, and any manmade objects that the students find inspiring. Bring them back to the sculpture studio and using screws, rivets, hot glue and polymer epoxies, assemble the components with a focus on flow, balance, movement, and sculptural aesthetics to transform the debris into works of art. This course is open to all skill levels.
