Would creating contemporary-wire art embolden your inner Auguste Rodin? Would twisting and bending wire into uber-chic home décor transform your walls from drab to fab? If so, our wire workshop on May 13th, 1 – 4pm is a must! The workshop features light-gauge sculpting wire and lots of creativity for making stirring works of art and home décor. And you don’t need to be an experienced artist either — the workshop is designed for artists of all ages and skill levels — the only requisite is having fun with wire and exploring one of art’s most important concepts — lines! The workshop is free and all materials are provided.
