Metals for Art Components

My fascination with metals is continuous. This workshop will show you some of my
current ideas. These ideas are possible with papers, fabrics and other types of
surfaces even though they will not react quite the same way as metal.
Take what works for you from these ideas—then take them further. As you start to
experiment you will find all sorts of ways to create components for your mixed media
Vary shapes, color, materials, texture etc. Be playful—mix it up—invent your own
original elements. This is meant to be inspiration for new ideas.

Construct Coils Using Metal Wire

In this video workshop I will share one of the ways to create wire for your artwork.
My work has evolved over the years to embrace using metals in fiber like ways. This
workshop is right along those lines. By using simple plastic knitting looms—you will see
how easy it is to create different size coils from wire to add to your mixed media
configurations. (one quick idea is to anchor the wire by pressing a bit of the coil into
gel medium or thick paints)
