What you'll do

We will begin with reviewing our materials, a quick run down of why we are using what we are using, etc.

We will then work out ideas about what it is we'd like to make. I will guide you through some basic sketches so we can have a reference point for our sculpture.

We will then begin on making our sculpture! I will guide you through the process and the use of various tools.
I will then bake our sculptures for 15min, during which time we can chat, mingle and enjoy some coffee and tea.

Once the sculptures have been completely baked, we will apply the gold leaf and seal our sculpture. The you will have a lovely piece of art to take home!

I spent 3 years as an illustration major at OCAD U, and 4 years at McMaster fro Theatre&Film & Philosophy. You can find me at markets throughout the city selling my art, and I have completed a number of portrait and mural commissions.

I love all things art and art-related, I play the piano, love logic puzzles and I'll never shy away from a good debate!

Where you'll be

We will be creating our sculptures in my home art studio. It has an eclectic charm, full of inspiration and its ruggedness is great for making a mess!

Deanna was amazing! She made the whole experience easy and fun, and we had a wonderful time. Deanna was a great teacher and really made sure we all could participate and make the most of the experience. Highly enjoyable, would recommend!
