RECAP: ‘The Shape of Art: How Not To Be Square’ Workshop

  • by

One of the best things about opening weekends at Stranger Factory (besides awesome art, delicious doughnuts, and the grinning faces of the Stranger Factory crew) are the fantastic art workshops offered every month. This month, a sculpting and lecture workshop – The Shape of Art: How Not To Be Square – by Valency and Tim Lee, was no exception.

During the workshop, both Valency and Tim discussed their process with developing and working with three dimensional platforms – Valency with her taxidermy mounts, and Tim with his hand cut wood shapes.

Lots of tips and tricks were shared, as well as lots of bad jokes and cookies. In the image below, Katie, the new Stranger Factory assistant, is to the left, sculpting a pretty lacey texture. The lower half of Tim Lee is in the background, discussing his process. Mikee is Mikee.
