Erica Gray (Australia)

'Sculptured Accessories'

Join Erica in utilising some of her favourite techniques to explore sculptured accessories.

 Incorporating hand-built sculpture techniques, some incorporated new tech as well as traditional sewing techniques to stitch, build, weld and entwine materials into 3D structured forms.

You will utilise and incorporate a variety of methods including soft sculpture, wire manipulation and a 3D drawing as well as some stitched surface detailing to create a selection of 3D wearable items, among them:

•      Ring

•      Earrings

•      Neckpiece or pendant

•      Brooch

•      Headpiece & fashion mask

You will also discuss how one small piece can become a whole garment and I hope that by the end of our time you’ll have loads of ideas to inspire you!

This workshop is suitable for a creative beginner through to someone wanting to refresh or try a new technique.
