Make a Wire Angel or Christmas Fairy workshop

13 Oct

This is a Mixed Media workshop using wire, various adhesives and fabric techniques to create a sculpture on a body base which will then be dressed using scraps of vintage material and trimmings. Glass beads, old music paper and gold masking tape will be used to make wings, halos and crowns. The main body will stand to be approx 20cm.

During this workshop you will create your own Angel or Fairy for the top of your Christmas Tree that will make you smile year after year. Your vision of prettiness will be hand-finished with scraps of delicate vintage fabrics, lace, beads and other vintage delights.
