Using a collection of found treasures from local thrift stores five participants created unique assemblages honoring loved ones.
The only part common to all was a wooden gazebo purchased from a craft store.
The magic started when the VerDay Metallic Paint and Patina created beautifully distressed “metal-like” gazebos--
and other bits--
Then the assembling and embellishing and uniqueness happened--
It was so much fun for me to see all the assemblages from start to finish.
ANCESTOR SHRINE WORKSHOP
Ancestor Shrine Workshop
I am offering a one day assemblage workshop, Ancestor Shrine. We will start with a wooden bird house which will be altered to look like metal. Other pieces of wood and metal will be attached using epoxy clay and wooden dowels. Photos and other mementos, wire and embellishments will be attached to create a unique and personal shrine to your loved one. This is a free workshop and most materials will be provided. You will bring any special items to add to your assemblage. The workshop will be offered at the end of March at Small but Mighty Arts in Haslett. The exact date to be determined. You can contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested.
