Workshop description ~

Objects of My Affections 

(Wee Whimsy Sculptures average size is  4 – 6 inches)

*Kit contents provided by instructor:

8 oz Paper Clay, 3 pre-made sculptures, templates, pre-cut shrink plastic, beads, wire, sequins, findings 

Use of the teachers tools, paints, brushes, glues etc.

Students only bring themselves and a good mood  



Day One 6.5 hours – Wee Whimsy sculptures. Oh so small but oh so serious!  We start using paper clay to form our pieces creating geometric shapes. These will “air dry” in the oven.  Our pieces will then be sanded.  You will use one of pre-formed pieces in your kit to practice sanding. The other two pre-done pieces will already be sanded and assembled. Our goal is to give the paper clay forms a Folk Art, hand-carved wood look ~ after all paper clay is just a soft mold-able wood.  

Next we will learn dry brush painting using acrylic paints. Dry brush painting allows you to add layers of paint with no worry of creating a muddy look.  Just beautiful casually added layers of color. It is a very versatile and easy to learn painting style! 

AT this point, our sculptures will be ready to assemble.

Day Two 6.5 hours – Using pre-cut shrink plastic flower shapes, we will use colored pencils to add color and design to our flowers, coordinating each to our sculptures. The flowers will be shrunk and formed using the SHRINKETS molds. 

They are then added to the sculptures, and we will wire wrap leaves created as our design necessitates.  Each kit will come with one leaf to follow as a design guide.  

Attaching/connecting techniques will also be taught.


You are invited to enjoy a “community” lunch (my favorite part!).
Studio will provide drinks, cups, plates, silverware, paper products, and condiments.
