In this talk, multi-talented artist and sculptor Sheena McCorquodale will share all you need to know about working with chicken wire as a medium. From the basics (tools required, safety precautions) through discussing how to work with its built in limitations and strengths, Sheena will demonstrate construction using basic cylinder shapes, musculature and skin, how and when to use armature and how to add strength and rigidity to a piece. Building life and character into these forms and finally, painting and mounting round out this fascinating talk.
