The Froud's Sculpting Workshop during Faerieworlds 2009

In late July 2009, we took a sculpting workshop
offered as part of the Faerieworlds Summer Festival
in Eugene, Oregon.
This is Holly & Hannah with the Frouds
Brian, Holly, Hannah, Wendy & Toby

The workshop was in a local hotel and there were
about a dozen of us.
Wendy lead us in a short meditation
and then we began sculpting!

We learned how to make a wire armature
and to cover it with foil and tape.


Then we covered it with a layer
of polymer clay.


We added the pieces to begin the facial features


All the while, the Frouds roamed the room
answering questions and giving encouragement.


Hannah & Holly well on their way.


Wendy giving Hannah some tips.


Brian giving some insight on the process.


Can you see the progress??
You don't want to see mine, heehee!



Nope, SOOoooo not mine!
Wendy's!!


Time for a lunch break!
Jesse met us for lunch. He was just hanging out
waiting for us.
Check out the view...The food was yummy.
This was the restaurant at the hotel.

Back to class and time to bake
our creations.
We were the slow-pokes.
Wendy was very patient with us!

(Thanks Wendy...We L*O*V*E You!)

We had to wait for them to cool down.

I was supposed to be working on adding the
details to mine, but it was fun to watch
Brian and Toby working on theirs!

Everyone was SO creative....
Here is Casi and her sculpture.

It was so fun to see how different they all were.


How cool is this guy??


I believe this is Ruth.
She had taken a workshop the previous day
with Elizabeth who makes the
precious baby faeries.

My hair looks just like his some mornings!


Hard at work.


Dancing Hands and her creation.

Dancing Hands daughter....
Her name is Hannah too!
Her sculpture had her laughing as she made it.
I am pretty sure she had a good time.
It was so fun to be in a room full of creativity!!


Just a few more details.....


Done??


Here is my sculpture...
I called her Willamena.
Her eyes are kinda bugged out....
I gotta work on that!

***The finished work***

Very cool!
The Froud's work


Hannah's, Holly's and mine


A happy student!


Hannah putting on the finishing touches.


Sherri and Kate taught a workshop
the previous day. I would love to take
their class too!

We will let you know when the workshops
are announced for the winter Faerieworlds.
We can't wait!!
