*The work shown is that of the instructor
Constructing a well proportioned armature is key to giving your intended project a good start. This workshop focuses on methods for doing just that. Working with heavy gauge wire, polyester batting and muslin, while taking cues from the human body, my goal as instructor is to help students gain a good sense of proportion and create an effective armature.
