Listen up you salty seadogs, here's the scuttlebutt: It's time to nail your colors to the mast and clean the crustaceans from your ears. We are heading out to the sea of found objects and assemblage to create some Nautical Oddities. I love shipwrecks, not being on one but rather the aesthetic of these dark ever-changing structures. After years beneath the waves, these relics eventually merge with the oceanic critters to form a curious hybrid; something fabricated and manmade that has evolved into something organic and strange. This is exactly what we are going to create in this workshop; we will take an object or objects and give them a nice dose of the briny deep. What you create is entirely up to you - it could be a shrine to a mermaid, a tentacled shrine, or clawed crustacean covered clock - the sea is the limit. I should mention that you will not need to go fishing to find your ocean dwelling critters, we are artists -so - what we can't find we can easily make. Get ready to batten down the hatches because we're heading deep into No Man's Land.
