SoMMA prides itself on offering premier workshops to it’s members. We search far and wide for top notch artists who do quality work and give excellent, inspiring instruction. the year. Some are small and short and inexpensive. We call these “mini” but you still learn ALOT. Once a year we try to find a nationally known and respected artist/instructor.

Illusion of Metal Mini Workshop The Illusion of Metal workshop, taught by Kathy Plante, is a mixed media foray into creating the look of riveted industrial metal with a few simple materials and a set of soft metalworking tools. You will learn how to emboss and patina soft metal creating yards of textured “steel” which you will use to cover a small box, transforming it into a piece of industrial art. This technique will give your mixed media pieces a heavy duty, edgy look characteristic of urban metal grunge and is a great addition to your mixed media “toolbox” of techniques.

Each student will go home with a finished box, a length of “industrial steel” and your own set of metal working tools so you can make more “steel” at home.

The workshop will be Saturday June 10th at the JGMS building in Mandarin, from 10:00-3:00

The workshop requires that Kathy purchase tools in advance so we are asking for paid signups IMMEDIATLY if you don’t want to miss out on this class!                                            THIS WORKSHOP IS FULL       We will take a waiting list.
