Wire Sculpture

Taught by Morgan Riker

About the Workshop

In this workshop you’ll learn the basics of wire sculpture, specifically aiming toward observing and forming plant sculptures. We’ll start with a quick drawing warmup (NO DRAWING EXPERIENCE or SKILL NECESSARY!), and then learn how to form a simple cone flower and leaves, with plenty of space for making it your own.
